Skeleton of Ancient Sea Cow Found on Bering Island

16 Nov — 2017

Recently during regular monitoring of the coastal line Marina Shitova, Researcher of the Commander Islands Nature and Biosphere Reserve, found a skeleton of the extinct Steller’s sea cow. 

Several ribs stuck up from a small steep like a fence. We soon realized that it is a skeleton hidden under a layer of pebbles and sand. Several days later, after the weather became better, our team organized an expedition to dig the ancient animal skeleton up.
