The results of anatomical and morphological studies of new corpse remains of the fossil woolly rhinoceros found in 2007 in the lower reaches of the Kolyma River are described. These new data provide additional details of the specific features of the structures and sizes of individual body parts of the fossil rhinoceros and allow for several inferences on the specific adaptations of this species to the cold climate of the Ice Age. Palynological data for the stomach contents of the woolly… 

Adaptation of the woolly mammoth Mammuthus primigenius (Blumenbach, 1799) to habitat conditions in the glacial period

An analysis of the available data on the various adaptations of the woolly mammoth to the cryoarid conditions of the Ice Age is presented, and it is suggested that this species is referred to a highly specialized species of the Mammoth biome.

Braincase With Natural Endocast of a Juvenile Rhinocerotinae From the Late Middle Pleistocene Site of Melpignano (Apulia, Southern Italy)

The neurocranium has been restored and the anatomy of both the brain and the paranasal sinuses has been obtained and compared with those of juvenile and adult Pleistocene rhinoceroses, which evidence a different morphological development of the inner cranial anatomy in fossil and extant African species.

A nasal horn discovered in the Museum of Paleontology, University of Helsinki, Finland, is described and figured and the transverse bands are interpreted as annuli and suggest a stronger sexual dimorphism in horn size in Coelodonta antiquitatis than in living rhinos.

Preliminary study of a mummified woolly rhinoceros from the lower reaches of the Kolyma River
