£400k buys you a mammoth family
A FAMILY of four mammoth skeletons are expected to fetch up to £400,000 at auction.
The ice age giants were discovered together in 2002 during building works near the Siberian city of Tomsk.
A male and a female, a teenage daughter and a one-year old baby mammoth were unearthed after construction workers noticed bones close by.
The one-year-old is only the second known almost complete baby mammoth skeleton in the world.
The family of mammoths go under the hammer at Summers Place Auctions on November 21.
