It's like a Game of Thrones direwolf, only smaller and creepier.
A 40,000-year-old severed Pleistocene wolf's head has been discovered in eastern Siberia -- and the permafrost that preserved it also kept its teeth and fur pretty much intact.
According to the Siberian Times, the head was found by a local resident, Pavel Efimov, in 2018, though photos were not released until now.
The wolf is believed to have been between 2 and 4 years old when it died.
The head is 40 cm (15.7 inches) long and the brain is intact.
The discovery is an international affair.
