Bones of unknown prehistoric animal found in Ukraine

The bones of an unknown pre-historical animal have been discovered in the Chernovtsy region, southwestern Ukraine. In the view of scientists, the bones belong to a mammalian that fell victim to the Pithecanthropus - the forefather of the Homo Sapiens - able to use fire, but not yet capable of speech, RIA Novosti was told at Chernovtsy National University.

This is evident from the traces left by blows made with a sharply pointed stone tool.

As estimated by paleontologists, the age of the ossified bones is about 300,000 years, that is, the animal is older than the mammoths.

Its remains were found under the ground, at a depth of 21 meters, when digging a well.
