Baby Mammoth Returns to the REACH!
After a two year engagement at the Wenatchee Valley Museum, Baby Ems, the REACH Museum's baby woolly mammoth skeleton is back and on display in Gallery I, Gateway to the Hanford Reach National Monument exhibition. Baby Ems the mammoth got its name from Ashley Nelson of Richland, WA in the REACH's 2009 "Name the Baby" contest.
The three feet long and 34 inches high baby mammoth on permanent display at the REACH is a replica of the complete skeleton of a prehistoric baby woolly mammoth discovered by Russian paleontologists in Siberia in the late 1990's. The original skeleton is at the North American Museum of Ancient Live at Thanksgiving Point near Lehi, Utah. Paleontologists at the museum created an exact-scale replica of the original skeleton for the REACH. The original is believed to be the smallest mammoth ever discovered and the only complete baby woolly mammoth skeleton on display in the world.
