    This Giant Severed Wolf Head From 40,000 Years Ago Was Unearthed in Siberia

    This Giant Severed Wolf Head From 40,000 Years Ago Was Unearthed in Siberia
    PETER DOCKRILL 26 JUNE 2020

    As our planet's permafrosts continue to melt in record-breaking heat, we can expect to find astonishing things from the ancient past.

    Like this huge wolf head, preserved since the last ice age and unearthed in incredible condition in Siberia in 2018, an estimated 40,000 years since being entombed in frozen wilderness.



    The giant head, discovered by a local man in 2018 along the shores of the Tirekhtyakh River in the Russian Republic of Sakha (aka Yakutia), measures a whole 40 centimetres in length (about 16 inches), making it unlike any existing wolf specimen scientists have studied from so long ago.

    "This is a unique discovery of the first ever remains of a fully grown Pleistocene wolf with its tissue preserved," palaeontologist Albert Protopopov from the Republic of Sakha Academy of Sciences told The Siberian Times back in 2019.

    "We will be comparing it to modern-day wolves to understand how the species has evolved and to reconstruct its appearance."
    Jack is not impressed.

    Frail elder: Yes?

    Con Man: It looks like you owe about $56.93 from that cable TV thing you signed up for last month.

    Frail elder: This is Bobby.

    She liked Ginger's scenario. And yes, she knows it's thoroughly unrealistic,and that wolves do not make good pets.
