New species of expired gigantic rhino that have been identified in China have travelled through Asia

The reddish-brown sandstone of the Linxia basin yielded the fossils, which included a skull and two vertebrae.

According to research published in Communications Biology on Thursday, fossils unearthed in North-West China's Gansu province reveal a new type of gigantic rhino living over 26 million years ago.

In the reddish-brown sandstone of the Linxia Basin, the fossils, including a skull and two vertebras, gave insight into the evolution of the old rhinos - one of the biggest earth mammals ever - and migrated across Asia today.

The distribution of gigantic rhino fossils - comparable fossils were discovered far away in Pakistan from the Himalayas - shows that, "Tibet, like a plateau, did not yet exist and was not yet a barrier to the exchange of largest land mammals," stated the article.

Giant rhinos, such as the recently found Paraceratherium linxiaense species, were hornless and long-cutting herbivores, perhaps weighing 20 tonnes - equivalent to some elephants - and might live in open woods.
