300 Thousand Year Old Elephant with 8 Foot Tusks Discovered in Germany

An almost complete 300,000yearold elephant skeleton with eightfoot tusks has been recovered from a former mine in Germany. The Eurasian straight-tusked elephant, Palaeoloxodon antiquus, died by the shores of an ancient lake before its corpse was scavenged by carnivores.

Researchers in Germany at the major Archaeological site of Schöningen in lower Saxony have announced a stunning discovery of an Ancient Elephant with 8 foot tusks, a species no longer present in the region or indeed on Earth
