5,000-Year-Old Leopard Trap Discovered

1 post in this topic

Archaeologists have unearthed a 5,000-year-old leopard trap in the Negev Desert in Israel.

The trap, which was found along with a 1,600-year-old trap, was originally thought to be just a few hundred years old, and is nearly identical to traps that have been used by desert-dwelling Bedouins in the area in the last century.

"The most exciting thing is the antiquity of these carnivore traps, which is totally unexpected," said study co-author Naomi Porat, a geochronologist with the Geological Survey of Israel.
