Pleistocene wolf’s head unearthed

The severed head of the world’s first full-sized Pleistocene wolf was unearthed in the Abyisky district in the north of Yakutia. 

Local man Pavel Efimov found it in summer 2018 on shore of the Tirekhtyakh River, tributary of Indigirka.

The wolf, whose rich mammoth-like fur and impressive fangs are still intact, was fully grown and aged from two to four years old when it died. 

The head was dated older than 40,000 years by Japanese scientists.

Scientists at the Swedish Museum of Natural History will examine the Pleistocene predator’s DNA.

The Pleistocene wolf’s head is 40cm long, so half of the whole body length of a modern wolf which varies from 66 to 86cm. Picture: Albert Protopopov

Our report about the prehistoric wolf’s head found in frozen soil in Siberia attracted huge attention around the world. 

Today we can show the first video of the ancient animal with its head severed. 

A number of our readers queried whether the wolf was - in fact - a bear, or even a mythical ‘bearwolf’ and below are the answers from scientist Dr Albert Protopopov which explode this idea.

They just found the head ? Do they found the bones of the rest that decayed with it?
