The British tabloids are having fun today with two videos reportedly showing mythical creatures at play in otherwise ordinary settings.

In the first video, a large creature is seen crossing a river in the Chukotka Autonomous Okrug region of Siberia. The Sun reports that a Russian government worker shot the video and claims it shows a Woolly mammoth, a creature whose heyday passed more than 10,000 years ago. And while this is almost certainly not an actual mammoth, there is some historical evidence to tantalize cryptozoologists. It turns out that some mammoths actually did survive beyond the extinction of their brethren, living on Wrangel Island off the coast of Siberia until about 3,500 years ago.

But if you watch the video closely, you will see that what is supposed to be the creature's trunk, or possibly its tusks, appears to be quite flaccid. Some viewers speculate that the furry creature in the video is nothing more than a bear carrying a large fish in its mouth. Others have surmised that it is an elephant, the mammoth's genetic cousin, lost in the woods.

Why is it that all these "sightings" videos are shot with the lowest res camera available about 10 years ago?

Also for the record, you can see the ears flapping. I'd say it's an elephant.

Since when are mammoths "mythical," and why would "woolly," the name of the species, be capitalized when it's not a proper noun? Yahoo needs an editor.
