DNA shows "The Siberian Unicorn" traveled with people



[ad_1]

The return from the planet – the "unicorns" seem to have beaten her once on Earth, but they were more like rhinoceroses than horses.

Researchers learn more about fuzzy rhinoceroses called "Siberian Unicorns" after fossil DNA tests provide a perspective on their disappearance. Paleontologists say they were about much longer than originally believed, living up to at least 39,000 years ago. This means that animals live among humans.

It was believed that they disappeared between 100,000 and 200,000 years ago.

The study also shows that Elasmotherium sibiricum probably disappeared because climate change has eradicated her meadows and sources of food, not people.

Team research has been published in the journal Nature Ecology and Evolution.

This photo taken on July 28, 2015 on the Angeau-Charente archaeological site in southwestern France shows fossilized dinosaur bones during their digestion, a dinosaur femur from Sauropod (R) and an Ornithomimosaur (ostrich dinosaur, a new dinosaur species identified on the site where at least 43 specimens have been inventoried) of dinosaur teeth (still in a clay gang). The Angeac dinosaur fossil deposit is unique in France by its abundance; of the thousands of fossils discovered there, two species previously unknown were identified.

A student in paleontology discovered fossils on July 25th. The largest Sauropoda thigh bone in the world was found on this site in the summer of 2010. The site was discovered in 2008 and is actively searched since January 2010. AFP PHOTO / JEAN PIERRE MULLER read JEAN PIERRE MULLER / AFP / Getty Images)

LAS VEGAS – SEPTEMBER 30: One of the world's largest shark junction sets, consisting of about 180 fossil teeth of the prehistoric species, Carcharocles megalodon, which grew to the size of a school bus, is displayed at the Venetian Resort Hotel Casino 30 September 2009 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Bonhams & Butterfields auctions hope that the fossils will bring about $ 900,000-1.2 million when auctioned on October 3 in the Venetian as part of the Natural History auction. The 50 Bid Fossil Batch Center is a 66 million-year-old Tyrannosaurus rex skeleton called "Samson." The 40-foot dinosaur fossil, excavated in South Dakota in 1992, contains about 170 bones and is said to be the third most complete T. rex skeleton ever discovered. Bonhams & Butterfields hopes Samson will auction over $ 6 million. (Photo by Ethan Miller / Getty Images)

NEW YORK – MAY 10: A Microraptor Fossil in a 130 million-year-old forest that existed in Liaoning Province, China, is exposed to the new exhibition "Dinosaurs: Ancient Fossils, New Discoveries" at the American Museum of Natural History May 10, 2005, in New York City. The exhibition, which will be open to the public on May 14 and will begin until January 8, uses recent fossil discoveries, computer simulations, and life-size models to identify changes in the biology of dinosaurs over the past two decades.
