Severed Head of a 40,000-Year-Old Giant Pleistocene Wolf Discovered in Russia
The head of a giant Pleistocene wolf was discovered in the Abyisky district in the north of Yakutia in July 2018 as recently released footage shows. The Pleistocene wolf’s head is 40cm long, half of the whole body length of a modern wolf which varies from 66 to 86cm. It is reportedly the first ever remains of a fully grown Pleistocene wolf with tissue this well preserved. According to a study conducted by Japanese scientists, the 2 -4 yo wolf, whose fangs and fur are still intact, is estimated to have died 40,000 years ago.
