(CNN)Scientists studying the body of a perfectly preserved Ice Age puppy have made an unexpected discovery -- a piece of what could be one of the last woolly rhinos inside its stomach.

Russian researchers first excavated the preserved, furry body of the canine -- which could be a dog or a wolf -- from a site in Tumat, Siberia, in 2011.

Inside the 14,000-year-old puppy's stomach was a hairy piece of tissue. At first, scientists assumed the fragment belonged to a cave lion, because of its fine yellow fur. But tests by experts at Stockholm's Natural History Museum told a different story.
