Woolly Rhino Just Defrosted After 25,000 Years

Cue the Jurassic Park theme song, these pictures are crazy! Scientists are trying to defrost and study a 25,000-year-old woolly rhino in Siberia!

A young, woolly rhino was just revealed to be unearthed from the Siberian permafrost and scientists are actually able to study the frosted rhino based on how it was preserved.

The rhino was eight-feet-long and had hazel-colored hair and scientists believe the rhino was being chased by predators when it fell into a body of water and couldn't get out.

You can see footage of scientists defrosting the woolly rhino below, but just a heads up that it is a little graphic.
