Siberian Miners Unearth Creepy Mummified Critter

When Siberian miners uncovered a horrific-looking mummified critter corpse in the diamondiferous sands in Udachny they didn't freak out and cry “monster!” - because they thought they'd found a dinosaur.

But most people with a rudimentary understanding of animal anatomy instantly recognized it as the corpse of a mammal, so the dinosaur angle was ruled out with a glance.

As commenters argued about what it could be they determined it was probably a marten or weasel, possibly a badger, and definitely no big deal much to the miners' dismay.

The creature is currently being transported to the regional capital Yakutsk for examination, where experts will determine whether it's an important find or an elaborate prank.
