Posted February 11, 2019 07:59:51 Scientists have discovered a new fossil of an animal with the teeth of a prehistoric human in New Zealand’s north.
The discovery of the new fossil is one of a number of discoveries of ancient fossils that date back to around 15,000 years ago.
Key points: The specimen was found in the bush in the country’s north-west, just north of Wollongong The fossil was found by a student from a New Zealand university and presented to a museum in Wollongs Cave, which is part of the Kimberley National Park The discovery was made during the late summer, when students from the University of Auckland and the Natural History Museum of New Zealand were visiting the area for the first time.
The University of New South Welsh students have now released a video of the fossil being displayed to the public.
It is a rare find because the fossil was not exposed to sunlight.
Its teeth are similar to those of an extinct extinct animal that lived during the Pleistocene epoch (about 18,000 to 10,000 year ago).
“This fossil was only found in a small area of the country in the Kimberlee National Park, so we had a little bit of a head start on the team,” Professor Mark Cunneen, the head of the Museum of Natural History at the University, said.
The new fossil was discovered in the north-western bush by a university student in Wolls Cave. “
[It was] extremely rare that we could get such a fossil, because the Kimberle-New Guinea bush is so very cold, but this is really unique.”
The new fossil was discovered in the north-western bush by a university student in Wolls Cave.
Professor Cunnen said it was very rare to find fossils of this kind, especially in the south.
He said the animal was probably an extinct species.
New Zealand is home to many fossil sites that have been discovered over the years, including those of the great extinct animal, the Tasmanian Devil, and of a large dinosaur.
Scientists say the new species was likely a new species that existed somewhere between 12,000 and 15,500 years ago, with the skull being quite small.
In addition to the fossil, a number were discovered during a research expedition to Wolloks Cave.
Professor Cunnen said he was very impressed with the student’s ability to discover a new dinosaur.
“It was really interesting and a really nice surprise to see a dinosaur in the field, and it was really exciting to see this specimen in the museum,” he said.
“This was a really rare find, but the University really did not have any other fossil to put in its collection.”
It was the first fossil found on the North Island of New Britain.
While some fossils have been found in Woks Cave, Professor Cunan said the new discovery would be “quite unusual” for New Zealand.
