    Remains of extinct cave lion found in Siberia. Russian scientists hope to clone it

    Frozen remains of an extinct cave lion cub have been unearthed in Russia, according to local media reports. The specimen is so well-preserved, with its facial features intact and its head resting on its paw, that Russian scientists hope to clone it.
    A local resident from the Siberian city of Yakutsk uncovered the remains of the prehistoric animal in September, according to the Siberian Times.

    Because the cub is in such excellent condition, preserved by the region's permafrost landscape, Protopopov said it is likely a candidate for cloning.

    fwiw, the caption at the bottom of the photos indicates that those are from the 2015 discovery by different folk, not this new discovery.

    Also all those guys have Russian names.
