New fossils in the Danube at Ruse

13.02.2017

   Teeth of a mammoth preserved and part of the lower jaw of a rhinoceros are the latest fossils found around the coast of the Danube at Ruse, announced the Historical Museum in the city. Among the finds is the horn round (large cloven-hoofed mammal disappeared many years ago, inhabited Europe, North Africa, Asia Minor and the Middle East), partially stratum formation of deer, two vertebrae, which is to establish whether they are of a rhinoceros, or mammoth. There are several copies of mussels over 60 million years of the Cretaceous period. For the findings will be made scientific analysis at the National Museum of Natural History - Sofia, said Krasimir Kirov, curator in the Department of "Nature" of the museum. Experts from Romania and Greece will again conduct research into two fragments of fossilized trees, part of the find.

 

   Ruse Historical Museum has a rich paleontological collection of the founder of the department "Nature" Michael Halvadjiev. He is the specialist who devotes his scientific career in the collection and examination of the remains of fossil mammals. In the period 1950-1965, the construction and due to increased demand for new quarries for sand and gravel, it is possible in many places in Ruse to discover the remains of fossil mammals, some of which have previously unknown in European literature. So far in the region have found the remains of 18 species of fossil mammals. These are species that are found in the sediments of the Pliocene and Pleistocene - sucking mammals of three families that inhabited our land a few million years - mastodons, mammoths, rhinoceroses. Paleontological material collected for 12 years, in parallel with the development of sand quarries. This makes it possible to determine the exact spot from where originates fauna in the Ruse region.

 

   Ruse museum has one of the most complete collections of fossil-sucking. In Bulgaria are at least 14 known species, and in the funds department "Nature" are stored the remains of nine of them. The most valuable is the lower jaw (mandibula) of Mammuthus rumanus, which is the world's only fully preserved as part of the representative of the earliest mammoths. Two-thirds of the remains of Elephas antiquus (right-biven mastodon) in the country are kept in the funds department "Nature".

 

In the eco-museum with Aquarium can be seen hairy mammoth (Mammuthus primigenius), reconstruction of the type presented as a model in real size.
