In Niğde, the skeleton of an animal found in a pantry carved
out of rock in an old home has still not been identified. Some
say that the animal in question became extinct but it is hoped
that an expert coming from the U.S. will solve the mystery.
Abdullah Öztürk, a locksmith in Niğde, has been exhibiting the
skeleton in a glass case in his shop for two years since a friend
brought it to him after finding the skeleton in a the rock pantry
in a home in Bor district.
Don't hate me because I'm beautiful.
The creature's tail portion is 45 centimeters and its body is 60
centimeters. Öztürk explained that two archeologists from Niğde
University have examined the skeleton and told him that the
skeleton is that of an old species that may now be extinct. But
they couldn't say precisely what species the skeleton was from.
To be reunited?
The two Niğde U. archeologists have summoned an expert colleague
from the U.S. (a.k.a. Steven Spielberg) to examine the skeleton and
hopefully identify it.
Skeleton was found in Bor district of Niğde province.
