  The rare remains of an ice-age wolf pup and a caribou will offer insights
about life in Canada’s far north more than 50,000 years ago, scientists say.
          科学家表示,冰河时代狼崽和驯鹿的罕见遗骸将有助于人们了解加拿大远北地区5万多年前的生活。
          The creatures were discovered with intact hair, skin, and muscle
tissue.
          被发现的这些生物保存了完整的头发,皮肤和肌肉组织。
          They were found in 2016 by miners near Dawson City in Yukon, and handed
over to palaeontologists for research and analysis.
          它们是于2016年在育空地区道森市附近被矿工发现的,并被交给古生物学家进行研究和分析。
          They are among the oldest mummified mammal soft tissue in the world,
palaeontologist Grant Zazula said.
          它们是世界上最古老的木乃伊化哺乳动物软组织之一,古生物学家Grant Zazula说。
          The wolf pup is estimated to have been about eight weeks old when it
died.
          据估计,狼崽的死亡时间约为8周龄。
          "It’s beautiful, the fur, it’s got the cute little paws and tail and the
curled upper lip showing its teeth. It’s spectacular," Mr Zazula told the
Canadian Press news agency on Thursday.
          “它的皮毛很漂亮,有可爱的小爪子和尾巴以及卷曲的上唇露出牙齿。太美了。”Zazula先生周四告诉加拿大新闻社。
          The caribou remains include the torso, head, and front limbs.
          驯鹿则保存了躯干,头部和前肢。
          Both specimens are currently on display in Dawson City and will eventually
be sent to the Canadian Conservation Institute near Ottawa.
          这两个标本目前都在道森市展出,最终将被送往渥太华附近的加拿大保护研究所。
          They are expected to help scientists understand how they lived in the
environment they inhabited.
          它们将有助于科学家了解其生活环境。
          Other creatures who roamed the region from that era, such as the woolly
mammoth and even a species of camel, are extinct. But distant descendants of
both the wolf pup and caribou can still be found wandering the Yukon.
          从那个时代开始漫游该地区的其他生物,如猛犸象,以及一种骆驼都已灭绝。但是狼群和驯鹿的远亲后裔仍然生活在育空地区。
