The carcass of a rhino that died 20,000 years ago found almost intact – teller report


#It is a surprising discovery. The carcass of a rhino that died 20 thousand years ago has been found in the lands of #Yakoutie, an #Autonomous #Republic located in the northeast of #Siberia. #It was almost intact. The researcher of the #Russian #Academy of #Sciences #Valery #Plotnikov, explains this phenomenon by the presence of permafrost (permanently frozen ground and absolutely impermeable in arctic regions). #According to the first analyzes, the young woolly rhinoceros aged 3 to 4 years at the time would have died of drowning in the #Tirekhtyakh, a river in the region.

#Part of his intestines were still in place

#His carcass was also identified near this stream. #It was 80% intact. #In addition to the almost intact carcass, pieces of tissue from the young animal, his teeth and part of his intestines were still in place as if he had recently died. #His horn was also well preserved. #She was near the carcass.

#For the moment, researchers have not yet determined the sex of this young rhinoceros who lived between 20,000 and 50,000 years before us. #Never has a specimen of the genus been found in such good condition in the region. #At least that’s what scientists are saying. #As a reminder, the carcass of the rhino was found by an inhabitant of northeastern #Siberia last #August.
