image for Scientists Discover Live Tiny Elephants in Siberia
This elephant is 3 1/2' tall. Amazing!

A new diminutive elephant species -- or sub-species -- has been discovered in a remote plateau in Siberia.

The elephants appearance is that of an African elephant fully grown at 3 ½' tall.

Typically scientists find fossil and frozen remains of Woolly Mammoths in Siberia.

A similar example are the fossil remains - not alive -- of pigmy Woolly Mammoths that were discovered on a desolate Siberian island, which might explain the evolved reduced size caused by limited geography and resources.

The startling facts however are that the plateau miniature elephants are alive and thriving, not wooly mammoths, and are a long way from Africa.

A new expedition is planned this summer to study the population of several hundred plateau elephants in the isolated 3 square mile area high above the frozen tundra of northern Siberia.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
