Unicorns are the fantasies of our childhoods as they were no less than angels. These beautiful horses with a horn on top of their head are also giving scientists headaches. After decades of research, they have reached the end of the question predicting that Siberian Unicorns, a mammal from the family of rhinos are the unicorn which also had horns on their forehead. These mammals got extinct almost 350,000 years ago. Still, the entire assumption overturned when scientists found a skull in Kazakhstan which proved that they existed 29,000 years ago not 350,000.

So, it means that when those stories were created, it was about to extinct. Still, people have cultivated a lot of imagination in it because the unicorns from fairytales ain’t like horses at all because these Siberian unicorns or Elasmotherium Sibiricum were massive. They were 6.6 feet or 2 meters tall and 4.5 meters long when the normal height of a horse is 1.6 meters. Also, it used to weight four tons. Also, scientists were able to detect that the fossil found in Kazakhstan, was a very old male.

Andrey Shpansky, a man from the team said, “Most likely, the south of western Siberia was a refugium, where this rhino preserved the longest in comparison with the rest of its range, there is another possibility that it could migrate and dwell for a while in the more southern areas” but scientists have no evidence about how did they on lived for so long.
