Researchers who found the body of a 42,000-year-old foal frozen in the Siberian permafrost have retrieved liquid blood from the extinct animal that might help bring its species back to life, media outlets reported on Tuesday.

According to The Siberian Times, a group of scientists from Russia and South Korea wants to clone an extinct horse species by extracting DNA from the frozen remains of a foal that died 42,170 years ago in Siberia. The foal’s body was found in the permafrost of a Siberian crater called Batagaika in Russia’s republic of Sakha, and was found to be part of the Lenskaya breed which went extinct about 4,000 years ago.
