Paleontologists Discover a Fossilized Skull of the Siberian Unicorn
on 28 March 2016
While they might not look exactly like we had imagined, unicorns actually did exist—and more recently than previously believed. Paleontologists in Kazakstan have uncovered a well-preserved skull of the Elasmotherium sibiricum (aka the “Siberian Unicorn”) that lived just 29,000 years ago—shattering the previous estimation of 350,000 years. The Siberian Unicorn looks more like a furry, slimmed-down version of a rhino than a horse, but it does feature that single horn protruding from its head. Take a closer look at Mother Nature Network.
