Mystery mummified monster discovered in Siberia diamond pit….


Remains of a strange creature have been found by Siberian miners in diamond-yielding sands.

A bizarre mummified creature has been discovered at the heart of a diamond mine in the Sakha Republic, in northern Siberia. This ancient “monster” could date back to between 252 and 66 million years ago.

The Siberian Times reports that the miners who found the remains had been working at the Udachnaya pipe diamond deposit, an open-pit diamond mine located just outside the Arctic Circle.

The site was discovered in 1955 and since then yielded 350 million tonnes of ore containing rough diamonds. There has also been a number of unusual discoveries such as that of a mystery red rock full of diamonds.

However, no find has been as strange as the mummified monster that has just been uncovered. Its origins are particularly puzzling because no one is capable just yet to say what this species is – it is like nothing ever found before in the region.The miners believed they had just stumbled upon the remains of a previously unknown species of dinosaurs.

Their theory has yet to be proven. The creature will therefore be taken for more analysis to the regional capital Yakutsk, a city 1,686km south of the Udachnaya diamond pit.

Other hypothesis about the little monster’s potential origins are that it might have bee the ancestor of the wolverine, a carnivorous mammal resembling a small bear or of the marten – another slender, agile mammal living in the snow forests of Siberia.

Closer analysis of the mummy’s morphology, bones, and of possible DNA samples should yield more clues about its origins and give a more precise approximation of the time it lived at.

Researchers Discover Fossils of Largest Dino Believed to Ever Walk the Earth…

Researchers believe they’ve found fossils of a dinosaur so large that it would have made Tyrannosaurus rex look like a pipsqueak.

Researchers announced this week they found fossils of a sauropod dinosaur that they estimate was the largest creature to have ever walked the earth.

Dr. Ruben Cueno, director of Museo Paleontológico Egidio Feruglio in Trelew, Argentina, said the dinosaur would have weighed at least 77 tons and grown to triple the size of a T. Rex. The bones were initially discovered by a farmer who spotted something unusual coming out of the ground.

 “It looked like a bone, but it was absolutely different from the bones [he recognized like] horse, llamas and sheep,” Cuneo told ABC News.

When the farmer alerted local scientists, they started digging and discovered a treasure trove of fossils. Cuneo said there are bones for seven dinosaurs, each the height of a seven-story building and stretching 120 feet from nose to tail.

“[It’s] a major, major beast that has been discovered for the first time in Patagonia,” said Cuneo. “It was an amazing discovery.”

Although scientists have been digging for years, Cuneo told ABC News he expects the dig to take at least two more years before all the bones are removed. Some bones will remain on site for the winter, covered by special plaster. Other early findings have already been brought back to the museum, where a new wing will be created solely to display the new dinosaur species.

The dinosaur does not yet have a name, but Cuneo said since names often refer to a geographic area or a researcher, it’s possible that the dinosaur will reflect where it was found.

“Super Patagoniasauraus,” Cueno said was one option. “[This] is going to be a major attraction in coming years.
