Wooly Rhino Found! Barbers Clip Up!


I’ve come to bless you with more knowledge of yesteryear. Apparently, Pleistocene mammoths weren’t the only creatures in need of a shape-up.

Some Russian hunters found a 10,000 year old baby wooly rhino, preserved in a chunk of ice, in a stream while boating. The calf, named Sasha, was 18 months upon death. She has a head, leg, eye, hair (this should be readily apparent) & two horns.

Scientists are searching for DNA within the specimen to match Sasha to a particular present rhino family.

It’s always nice to find lost treasures. Blade God Syg coming to a backyard near you, shovel in tow.
