Cave Lions? I've never heard of a Cave Lion before, have you, ATS? Apparently, paleontologists in Siberia found 2 extinct cave lion cubs that are the best-preserved cave lions ever unearthed.





The cave lions—Panthera spelaea (Goldfuss)—lived during Middle and Late Pleistocene times on the Eurasian continent, from the British Isles to Chukotka in the extreme east of Russia, and they also roamed Alaska and northwestern Canada. The extinct creatures were close relatives of modern Afro-Asiatic lion.

Finds of their remains are rare: today’s announcement about the existence of the pair is coupled with the confident claim that they are best preserved ever unearthed in the world.


With 2 completely intact specimens such as these it makes me wonder if there will be any attempts to revive or clone them...? What about ancient bacteria or diseases they may harbor? What says ATS?

What an amazing discovery. I have no doubt their is viable DNA. But i doubt there will be any rush to clone them. Remember, their is a reason why species die out - Bringing them back disrupts the balance of nature. Besides, You would need to find a relative close enough that is compatible to host the clones. We don't have any artificial wombs.

Yep. Quite the find....It kind looks Sea-Otter-ish to me.

Looks like a cat/dog hybrid to me with out the ears
. Bet it was cute when it was.. whole.. but with facial reconstruction and DNA sequencing, soon we will see what it looked like!

I often wonder about that when they go digging things up. One day something nasty is going to happen!

I dont like the idea of cloning, but I think it would be good to restart some extinct species. As I wrote in another thread, a herd of T-Rexes rampaging through the halls of governments would be good for this world.

Are they able to catch jackals?

Hmmm, maybe while being cloned they could have those tiny little arms fitted with a couple of BFG's.

I think as the world warms and the ice melts there will be a lot more discoveries such as this one in the near future. There's still so much history to be uncovered whether in a cave, under ice, or in a Tar pit.

Sorry, I'll stop. The joke's getting long in the sabre-tooth anyway...


(What's that? Wrong big cat family? Well, whatever...)


More on topic, according to the original link, it seems like in addition to the lions, there will be other preserved animals on display next month -- a truly mammoth undertaking!
