Prehistoric woolly rhino reveals secrets

7 posts in this topic

The preserved body of a woolly rhinoceros has revealed new insights into how this now extinct giant animal once lived.

The woolly rhino was once one of the most abundant large mammals living in Eurasia, but only a handful of preserved carcasses have been found.

Now an analysis of a female woolly rhino found preserved in Siberia reveals that the animal was a herbivore that grazed mainly on cereals, and was similar in size to today's Javan rhino.

Everything in the north between the UK and Kamchatka was 'woolly' back then, and I wouldn't be surprised if Neanderthals were also quite hairy.
