Unicorns Were Real, and a New Fossil Shows When They Lived

The well-preserved skull probably won't tell us whether their blood had magical properties, though.

The unicorn isn't just a myth – but it didn't look like this.

Dreams do come true – sort of.

According to a study published in the American Journal of Applied Sciences, the Siberian unicorn – Elasmotherium sibiricum – last walked the Earth about 29,000 years ago.

Scientists previously thought the creature with the partially mythical name died out about 350,000 years ago, but a newly discovered fossilized skull reveals it lived here much more recently.

The skull was found in the Pavlodar region of Kazakhstan, and scientists hope it will help shed light on how some members of the species apparently were able to survive as long as they did.

Before you get too excited, though, here's the catch: The Siberian unicorn really looked like more of a rhinoceros than a horse. It reportedly stood about 6 feet 6 inches tall, measured around 15 feet long, and weighed about 8,000 pounds.

As Science Alert explains, "That’s closer to woolly mammoth-sized than horse-sized."

The myth is real.

The remains, which were discovered just last month at an archeological site outside of Pyramid Lake in western Nevada, appear to be those of a smaller member of the Equidae family exhibiting a formerly unheard of two toes and bony protrusion on the central cranial plate. Scientists are speculating that this may in fact be the actual remains of the animal responsible for the myth of the Unicorn.

In news that has simultaneously shocked the scientific community and vindicated the dreams of every 12-year-old girl, Dr. Roscoe T. Gort of the Nevada Archaeological Society has announced that he and his team have unearthed what very well may be proof that unicorns once roamed the Earth.
