What a bone-a-fide discovery.

Researchers say they have discovered the nearly intact skeleton of a 50,000-year-old animal with pig like features inside a Southern Indiana cave.

According to reports, crews from the Indiana State Museum found the remains of the creature earlier this week after digging in the Crawford County cave for over 25 years.

Tina Sullivan, the museum’s vice president says that the discovery is the most complete skeletal remains scientists have found at in that cavern.

Researchers believe the remains are that of a flat-headed peccary.
