A now-extinct giant ‘Siberian unicorn’ existed much more recently than previously thought, paleontologists say.So it was big enough for Atheists to ride naked while chasing rainbows... Good to know. (Correlation = Causation, when you want it to).
The animal, an elasmotherium Siberian rhinoceros or ‘Elasmotherium sibiricum,’ was previously thought to be extinct 350,000 years ago. However, new research by experts at Tomsk State University (TSU) in Russia indicates that the "unicorn" may have existed until 29,000 years ago.
This means that the ‘unicorn’ may have roamed the Earth at the same time as humans – a human fossil found in western Siberia in 2008 was dated to 45,000 years ago.
It is thought that the giant animals were about 6.7 feet tall and 15 feet long.
