archaeologists have managed to discover complete remains of a
Dinoterium Digantom dinosaur in the world, dating back 2-7
million years ago, in the fossil-rich area of Razghan.
Dinoterium Digantom is one of the most unique types of dinosaur
fossils and archaeologists have never found a complete set of its
skeleton to date. Researchers believe this extinct mammal has
been the forefather of mammoths.
repairing staff discovered this precious fossil more than six
months ago while repairing the stable of a historical house,
named Amir Ershad’s House. They initially thought it belonged
to a mammoth: however, studies conducted by scholars at Tabriz
University, northwestern of Iran, concluded it has been a
Dinoterium Digantom fossil.
Researchers had already found a few fossils of this dinosaur,
but their discoveries comprised just a few separate bones. Head
of Iranian scholars said the fossil is 3.5 m in length and over
a ton in weight.
