Newly Discovered Skull Teaches About Dogs

Researchers recently uncovered a canine skull that is over 33,000 years old, making it the oldest evidence of the evolution between wolves and dogs that we've ever found.
The skull shows a mixture of traits seen in dogs and wolves. The snout is similar in size to early domesticated dogs in Greenland from around 1,000 years ago, but its large teeth are closer to those found in 31,000-year-old European wolves.
