    He speculated on when the extinct animals might have come onto the Kenai Peninsula but, at that time, none of the fossils had been dated. Since Ted’s articles, 10 newspaper articles and numerous public presentations by Janet Klein and me have reported our progress during a 5-year community-based investigation of these interesting fossils.

However, a trove of fossils discovered in (of all places) Lost Chicken Creek helps to redress the balance somewhat: no prehistoric chickens, sadly, but rather bison, horses, and caribou.

The causes of this extinction—the role of humans versus that of climate—have been the focus of.

Presence of four taxa that were grazers with hypsodont teeth, as well as herd-structured animals indicates grasses were present in some quantity during the late Pleistocene in central Arizona. Hypsodont teeth of extant and extinct horses are an adaptation to eating coarse, gritty plants, such as grasses (Scott, ).

However, many other species lived in Alaska during the Pleistocene, including short-faced bears and Berengian lions. There were even animals that are still around today, like beavers and horses. Creek Flats region of the central Tanana River valley, east-central Alaska (Holmes and Yesner ; Holmes ; Yesner), along with the subsequent discovery of the nearby Mead and Swan Point sites, has pre-sented new opportunities to evaluate the nature of late Pleistocene/early Holocene lifeways in interior Alaska.

Among the most iconic Ice Age mammals, the woolly rhino (Coelodonta) was widespread in northern Eurasia and adapted to cold climates in the mammoth steppe during the late Pleistocene (1–3).The known fossil record suggests that the woolly rhino evolved in Asia, but its early ancestry remains elusive (3–6).Our new middle Pliocene (~ million years ago) Cited by: Pleistocene rewilding is the advocacy of the reintroduction of descendants of Pleistocene megafauna, or their close ecological extension of the conservation practice of rewilding, which involves reintroducing species to areas where they became extinct in recent history (hundreds of years ago or less).
