It’s not every day you can see a 39,000-year-old woolly mammoth, but since the animal was found preserved in ice in Siberia, you soon can.

The animal, named Yuka by scientists, is nearly 10 feet long and is about to be on display in a museum in Japan.

Amazingly, much of the animal’s fur is preserved since it was frozen.

The display opens to the public on July 13 and runs through September.
