By Nana Kirtzkhalia - Trend:

Bones and teeth of a giant animal have been found by Georgian Gurjaani municipality's culture and national heritage service head Tamaz Markozashvili in Vejini village in Kakheti region, eastern Georgia.

Markozashvili found the animal's remnants while taking pictures of historical monuments together with other specialists.

"Our attention was drawn to a place eroded by water; there we have found bones, skull fragments and teeth of an ancient animal. I do not know what kind of animal it is and to what age the remnants belong. I believe it is an extinct mammal," Markozashvili said.

Remnants have been taken to Gurjaani and will soon be transferred to the National Museum of Georgia to be studied there.
