as a professor. Krzysztof Stefaniak In an interview with the UW website, researchers initially thought Stefania’s skeleton was another remains of a woolly rhinoceros, but preliminary examination revealed it was “a representative of the fossil genus Stefanorinus.” Scientists have determined that Stefania, the female rhinoceros of the extinct species Stefanrinus Kirchbergensis, lived for more than 35 years. Her height was more than 1.8 m at the shoulders, the height of the rump was 1.6 m, and the length of her body was from 3 to 3.15 m – she said “Policy“.

The remains of a woolly rhinoceros are widespread, while Stefanorinus Kirschbergensis is extremely rare. Usually, only small traces are found – single bones or teeth. – Only the tenth skull of an animal of this species known to science was found in Gorzów. And the other skulls are not at all complete, and not all the rest accompany them. Our Stefania may be the most complete and best preserved skeleton of this rare species in the world – he told Gorzowska “Gazeta WiborczaAdam Kotovsky in 2016.
