And the most direct ancestors of these mammals, the woolly rhinos, also went through this catastrophic problem almost 29,000 years ago, as various studies indicate that climate change affected their habitat in then-frozen Siberia. The investigation was published on August 13 in the Current Biology journal and was based on the study of genetic material (DNA) from 14 of these large herbivores.

What is the door to the underworld of Siberia and why does it open? Digital Trends Spanish
