A team of local and foreign archaeologists have dug up on the side of a hill in this northern Philippines city a vertebrae of a giant and unknown animal, which was estimated to have existed about 800,000 years ago, a member of the research team said on Friday.
Thomas Inggico, a paleontologist of the University of the Philippines- Archaeological Studies Program (UP-ASP), described the vertebrae unearthed at Elephant Hill archaeological site in San Pedro, Rizal as the remains of an animal bigger than a carabao but “it does not belong to an elephant.”
“We need more research to determine this animal,” Inggico said.
