When we think about “old” things in New Jersey, we’re usually thinking 100 or 200 years old. But for the next few days, you can see something that is 42,000 years old at the Liberty Science Center. That something is Lyuba, a baby mammoth specimen that was discovered in Siberia in 2007.
Lyuba has been at the Science Center on a limited tour that ends November 10. You can also see its Mammoths and Mastodons exhibit about the Ice Age and some of the creatures our ancestors once faced — cave bears, mammoths, and saber-tooth tigers. Kids can see life-sized models, examine artifacts, check out real fossils and even decorate their own digital cave walls.
