So Why Did Mammoths Freeze With Food in Their Mouths?

“Interestingly enough, some of the most incredible parts of the movie are also the most well-documented. The main example that comes to mind is the minus 150 deg downdraft that freezes stuff in such a hurry. I can recall 30 yrs ago in grade school being told about mammoths so frequently being found standing up in the melting glaciers, intact, with essentially fresh vegetation in their stomachs. To my knowlege, no African or Asian elephants have ever been reported as found dead while remaining in an upright position. Nor are they ever found intact, unless they are recovered within a very few hours of death.”

ME: Does anyone know if there’s actually anything to this?
