There are many incredible artifacts in the permafrost zones of our planet, which gradually expose due to global warming, according to Kazakh newspaper “Moskovskij Komsomolets”. According to the publication, one of the last outstanding discoveries, which excites the consciousness of scientists, is a horse, lived 40,000 years ago.
