Genomic analysis shows 18,000-year-old-puppy Dogor is a wolf
From Queen Mary University of London:
He was remarkably well preserved – and scientists were able to tell that he was male, his body was 18,000 years old and he was around 2 months old when he died. His name means ‘friend’ in the Yakut language. He was particularly puzzling because normally it’s relatively easy for scientists to distinguish between wolves and dogs.
Queen Mary’s Dr Dave Stanton and Love Dalén from the Centre for Palaeogenetics carried out the genomic sequencing that finally pinpointed Dogor’s true identity.
