The Ancient Tooth Of Porcupine

Researchers of the Institute of plants and animals of Ural Branch of Russian Academy of Sciences have started to re-study the cave, located on the border of the Sverdlovsk and Chelyabinsk regions, where in 2012 ancient tooth of porcupine was discovered. 


Previously, scientists believed that these animals cannot live in the Ural Mountains because of the cool climate that prevailed about 150 thousand years ago in this area. Scientists’ finding has proved the fact of the existence of ancient porcupines at that time, and the fact that the climate in the Urals was much warmer then and similar to the climate of broad-leaved forests of modern western Ukraine. In order to accurately age determination of the remains, it will be sent to the Warsaw Institute of Geology for analysis.
