Fido Flintstone

Pleistocene Glacial Ice   (PD)
The close relationship between humans and dogs goes back a long way, seemingly more than 12,000 years.

Two preserved Pleistocene puppies were recently discovered “in the Arctic tundra of Siberia’s Yakutia region.”  Their remains were near to an “early human settlement” named Tumat.

Were these pups pets of the Tumat people? Or did they simply hang out near human caves in search of food?

These questions might remain forever unanswered.  Nevertheless, the well-preserved brains of these canines could reveal crucial evolutionary knowledge.

Lead researcher Sergey Fyodorov has stated:  Discoveries of this kind of predators of mammoth fauna are extremely rare and can be counted on one hand.
