10,000-year-old rat fossils found in Paraguay

In this less intriguing Paraguayan paleontological site of Vallemi, in which the megafauna remains of a giant sloth bear appeared in 2012, have also found 10,000-year-old rat fossils.

The Faculty of Exact and Natural Sciences (Facen) of the University of Asunción in Paraguay has been in charge of the laboratory analysis of the remains of the rodents. These were found in the same sediment blocks in which part of the sloth's bones appeared and are made up of jaw bones and teeth that were extracted after the cleaning process.

Romantic, in the artistic sense of the word. In my adolescence, both family and friends reminded me over and over that I was an inveterate humanist, as I spent time doing what perhaps others not so much, believing myself to be Bécquer, immersed in my own artistic fantasies, in books and movies, constantly wanting to travel and explore the world, admired for my historical past and for the wonderful productions of the human being. That is why I decided to study History and combine it with Art History, because it seemed to me the most appropriate way to carry out the skills and passions that characterize me: reading, writing, traveling, researching, knowing, making known, educating. Disclosure is another of my motivations, because I understand that there is no word that has real value if it is not because it has been transmitted effectively. And with this, I am determined that everything I do in my life has an educational purpose.
