A severed head of a wolf estimated to have died between 30 , 000 and 40, 000 years Local resident Pavel Efimov found the well-preserved head of the world’ s first full-sized Pleistocen wolf in Because the beast' s fur and fangs are still intact, researchers at the University of Sweden are able to analyze

(CNN) -- A 40, 000 - year - old severed wolf ' s head , preserved by permafrost complete with teeth and fur , has been discovered in eastern Siberia . Locals looking for mammoth ivory found the remains on the banks of the Tirekhtyakh River in Yakutia

The wolf, whose fur and fangs are still intact, was between 2 and 4 years old when it died, The Siberian Times reported Friday.

"‘This is a unique discovery of the first ever remains of a fully grown Pleistocene wolf with its tissue preserved," Albert Protopopov, director of the mammoth studies department at the Academy of Sciences of the Republic of Sakha told the Times. "We will be comparing it to modern-day wolves to understand how the species has evolved and to reconstruct its appearance."

The Pleistocene wolf’s head measured more than 15 inches long, per the Times, larger than that of a modern wolf's head, which measures between 9 and 11 inches. Protopopov estimated the specimen is more than 40,000 years old, but two paleontologists involved in the project, Love Dalén from the Swedish Museum of Natural History and Valeri Plotniknov from the Yakutia Academy of Sciences, told Gizmodo that the head was closer to 30,000 years old.

The team from Sweden will study the predator's DNA, and researchers are building a digital model of the wolf’s brain and the interior of its skull, Protopopov told CNN.

It was found by mammoth tusk hunters in Siberia ' s Verkhoyansk region. Scientists hope to clone the unusually well-preserved foal. In 2016, Russian scientists said an outbreak of anthrax in western Siberia was due to the thawing of a frozen carcass of an infected reindeer that died 75 years ago.

"The number of discoveries is growing because of the thaw of the permafrost," he told CNN.

The specimen was discovered alongside a well-preserved cave lion cub which was the same size, the Times reported. Researchers believe the cub, nicknamed Spartak, died shortly after birth.
