Scientists in Russia were able to find frozen remains of a dog. However, debates have sparked the issue that the 18,000-year-old remains might belong to a wolf.
– An 18,000-year-old frozen remains were found in Russia.
– Scientists aren’t sure if it is a dog or a wolf.
– If it is a wolf, it is the oldest dog ever found.
The frozen remains were found in eastern Siberia and it’s a breakthrough because the nose, fur, and teeth remain intact. However, the DNA testing could not confirm yet whether the specie is that of a dog or a wolf. David Stanton, a researcher at Sweden’s Centre for Palaeogenetics said that because they cannot determine what specie the animal was, they believe that “it’s from a population that was ancestral to both — to dogs and wolves.” Stanton further added that the period in which the dog or wolf has lived is a very interesting time due to the wolf and dog evolution.
If it is indeed a dog, it is the oldest dog ever found in history.
