A Part of the Horn of a Prehistoric Animal Was Found in the Altai Mountains

A fragment of the bone horn of a buffalo that died in a flood 18,000 years ago was found in the Altai Mountains, the government of the Altai Republic reported. The finding was discovered in the sand and gravel pit of Maiminsky district several days ago.


 "According to the opinion of the experts from the Agency for Cultural and Historical Heritage, this prehistoric animal could have died about 18 000 years ago during a great flood when, as a result of tectonic plates fracture, the 120-kilometer long lake in Chuiskaya steppe overflowed. This caused the most enormous flood in the history - the water moved at a speed of 160 kilometers per hour and covered the ground with a layer of 490 meters" - is said in a statement. Later, after the detailed examination, the finding will be transferred to the museum fund of the republic.
