Prehistoric Rhinos, Horses Unearthed at Greek Paleontology Site

PIKERMI, Greece – Paleontologists slowly peeling back the earth from a dry river bed to the east of Athens have discovered the remains of prehistoric mammals that once roamed the region some 7.2 million years ago.

The excavations in Pikermi, some 26.5 kilometers (16.5 miles) outside the Greek capital, are overseen by Professor Giorgios Theodorou, from the University of Athens, in collaboration with the local municipality.

The fossil-rich site is located on the shores of an ancient lake that existed during the Neogean Miocene period, an era when the distant ancestors of today’s mammals grazed at the water’s edge.

Paleontologists have uncovered a number of bones belonging to prehistoric horses, rhinoceroses, gazelles and extinct members of the elephant family.
