(IMNSHO - I MIGHT be wrong, but I doubt it.)
The 30 fragments found in the sand and pebbles of the tundra were mummified, not fossilized. So despite their age, the pieces preserved tiny fragments of collagen within them, a common type of protein found in bones.

Collagen degrades rather quickly. That hints at a younger age than I would expect.

I was thinking it was interesting there is fear regarding the climate warming when here is proof it used to be warm in cold areas.

confirm that the animals now synonymous with the arid sands of Arabia actually developed in subfreezing forests
More like victims of a pole shift (Noah's flood?). They lived in a warm climate one minute, and were freeze dried the next.
A pole shift would also explain why they found fresh green grass in the stomachs of woolly mammoths buried in the ice.

We raise alpacas. The critters in the picture look more like alpaca faces than camel faces to me. The little one off to the right even loks like he’s wearing a halter. Although I must admit, I’d hesitate to take him into the show ring...

Generations from now, researchers will be uncovering the mummified remains of electric vehicles that also died there.
