The carcass of the world's most well-preserved baby mammoth set to go on a grand tour of Asia has been unveiled at an exhibition in Hong Kong.

Found in the Urals mountain range in the Yamal Peninsula of Siberia by a reindeer herder five years ago, the remains of the Ice Age beast known Lyuba are believed to be 40,000 years old.

It is thought that she was just three to four months old when she died, having drowned while taking a mud bath.
