It looks like that unicorns aren’t all that mythical after all.
Scientists in Kazakhstan recently discovered a fossilized skull that proves that unicorns, scientifically known as Elasmotherium sibiricum (Siberian unicorn), existed as early as 29,000 years ago. Except they weren’t exactly the majestic creatures we think of them as, but instead more closely resembled the rhinoceros, with fur and a giant horn.
They were also herbivores and typically were around six feet tall, 15 feet long and weighed around 8,000 pounds.
Previously studies placed the Siberian unicorn as going extinct around 350,000 years ago, but this recent discovery shows that unicorns were roaming around while humans existed.
Science for the win!
