Neanderthal landscape, artwork
Neanderthal landscape. Artwork showing a Neanderthal (Homo neanderthalensis, far right behind tree) watching grey wolves (Canis lupus, foreground). In the background are other mammals of the Late Pleistocene (130, 000 to 10, 000 years ago). Woolly mammoths (Mammuthus primigenius) are crossing the river. The animals on the river's near shore, from left to right, are: red deer (Cervus elaphus), horses (Equus caballus), woodland rhinoceroses (Stephanorhinus sp.) and aurochs (Bos primigenius). This scene is based on fossils found in the Iberian Peninsula, at the Butarque site.
