A new discovery that was never known before Archaeology It contains Aika DesertSouth of Peru, as it were Perucetus colossus, known as the largest animal on the face of the earth, will make the international scientific community focus its attention on our country again. Expectations are high and its presentation is already gearing up before the eyes of the entire world.
Peruvian researcher Mario UrbinaThe 61-year-old, considered a treasure hunter in the desert, is again responsible for this important discovery, which already promises to shake up the scientific community, just like the 40-million-year-old cetacean Perucetus colossus exhibit. years and weighs more than the giant blue whale.
Urbina made this latest discovery possible in the company of her good friend Walter Aguirrewith whom he worked hard bones of this new species. And, although there is still a certain secret, the researcher decided to broadcast some specific details.
“It’s so old, it’s got teeth on the site. It’s a fossil beauty, and it’s also very attractive. I am sure it will go all over the world,” said Urbina Latin News.
There is no exact date yet for the presentation of this interesting fossil Perucetus colossusBelongs to a new species Cetacean. But I knew it was coming soon. Peruvian researchers are getting everything ready and covering some details to reveal to the world.
Arbina is to be commended for her dedication and patience in finding important fossils that help us better understand history. He has devoted 44 years of his life to his ‘marriage’ with the desert.
“I love the desert, whether it’s hot or cold. It inspires me to find something spectacular and unique that has significance,” he said.
With that vision, Mario Urbina discovered the first bone of Perucetus colossus 16 years ago. It was a gigantic vertebra that – at the time – I didn’t know belonged to the skeletal system. Heaviest animal in the world.
To make it common sense, the discovery of the cetacean species Ocucaje DesertIt was a while, but that didn’t discourage him.
“I want to reach every spine dig up Eight meters of rock, but it is one of the most important discoveries in the world to see the continuity of evolution,” said Urbina.
Walter AguirreA source close to the Peruvian researcher said the team consisted of five people and that he was the only one in charge of cleaning the fossil.
“Right now there are five people digging and we’re taking the fossil out and I’m the only one responsible for cleaning it,” Aguirre said.
Contributed by Mario Urbina Peruvian Paleontology It is wonderful. His research and the fossil remains he discovered, which are millions of years old, fascinate school students, university students, colleagues and society in general.
“Without people like him, in his field, perhaps this field of paleontology would not be so open. He has given students from other majors like geography or biology the opportunity to dedicate themselves like him and see it as a future,” said one observer. Natural History Museum of the National University of San MarcosThe Perucetus Colossus is on display there.
Paleontologists such as Rafael Varas also recognize Urbina’s work: “This is a special case. We continue to have a series of stages that allow us to trace evolution and thanks to their discoveries, these are precisely what we have. Intermediate animals “That’s the connection between one evolution and another.”
According to Urbina, to mount a single spine Perucetus colossus, weighing approximately 200 kg, required six to seven people. This indicates the gigantic size of this species.
Peruvian and his team’s research suggests Perucetus colossus Primitive cetacean During the Basilosauridae group lived on the coasts of Peru Middle Eocene, about 40 million years ago. It is believed to have reached a length of about 20 meters and a weight of about 200 tons Heavy animal It lived on earth.
It took several years for Urbina to become interested in his invention. At first his colleagues thought it was not entirely true. “All the letters I wrote were answered by mocking my explanation. They said I made a mistake. No one believed that this animal could exist, because it was tantamount to a discovery Godzilla”, he revealed.
Parts of the skeletal structure of the largest animal on Earth were found in the Okukage Desert, known as the Tomb of the Ancients, because in its sands you can walk next to the ancient fossilized remains of gigantic animals from tens of thousands of years ago. .
The fossil of a new species of cetacean discovered by Urbina in that area of Ica, the so-called quadrupedal whale, was another very important discovery by the Peruvian explorer. Perucetus colossus.
In recent years, efforts have been made by executive and legislative authorities to protect the valuable desert. OkukejeBut this has not deterred squatters and even real estate companies from risking their home constructions.
Experts assure that Act no. 30958Issued during the government of then President Martin Vizcarra, it announces the registration, investigation, protection, promotion and development of the archaeological cemetery of national interest, but this alone is not enough.
