Due to their relatively small size, the animals are thought to have experienced unfavourable living conditions and to have died around 12,000 to 16,000 years ago, at the end of the Pleistocene period.
The one-year-old is only the second known almost complete baby mammoth skeleton in the world.
Earlier too skeletons of the T-Rex and the Stegosaurus have been auctioned for whopping sums of 2-3 million dollars.
