These Are 5 Very Miraculous Bodies Of Both Animals And Humans Found Frozen In Ice
From ape-men to ice maidens, the video below shows some very strange and miraculous bodies found frozen in the ice thousands of years after they died. The level of preservation was so good in most cases, that not only were scientists able to extract DNA, but even blood from most of these specimens. It truly is amazing how we have come so far scientifically, that we can actually pinpoint not only the age of each of these specimens, but through DNA sequencing we can makes many more other, more important determinations as well.
When an animal becomes frozen in ice, it’s body can last for thousands of years, giving us an incredible view of what the world was like when the animal was alive. Prehistoric mammoths, woolly rhinos, and even humans have been discovered, and are almost perfectly preserved, encased in their tomb of ice. But sometimes, more mysterious things are uncovered that seem to challenge parts of our understanding of biology.
For instance, I’ll use the last specimen from the video as an example, ” Ötzi ” the iceman:
Ötzi is a glacier mummy from the Copper Age, who, thanks to extraordinary circumstances, has been preserved down to the present day. Little by little, he has imparted genuine stores of knowledge. He was discovered accidentally by hikers in 1991, together with his clothing and equipment, on the Schnalstal/Val Senales Valley glacier and has been the subject of intensive research ever since.Over 5300 years ago, Ötzi was crossing Tisenjoch/Giogo di Tisa in the Schnalstal/Val Senales Valley, South Tyrol, where he was murdered and preserved naturally in the ice.He is therefore older than the Egyptian pyramids und Stonehenge and the result of a series of highly improbable coincidences. Ötzi lived during the Copper Age, a period of the late Neolithic. He was still using stone tools but owned an innovative and very valuable copper axe. The skill of extracting and processing metal had recently arrived in Europe from Asia Minor. The advent of copper marked the beginning of the Bronze Age.
