Azer News - - Front Page - By La­man Is­may­ilova

Askele­ton of unique an­i­mal has been dis­cov­ered in Ga­bala re­gion.

The an­i­mal has unique spine and only two limbs, ac­cord­ing to a re­gional cor­re­spon­dent.

The length of the skele­ton reaches one me­ter. The an­i­mal has long paws and large teeth.

The skele­ton was dis­cov­ered quite ac­ci­den­tally af­ter a fire that oc­curred last Septem­ber in the for­est of the re­gion’s Ga­mar­var vil­lage. The unique find­ing re­mains a mys­tery - the skele­ton does not re­sem­ble any of the an­i­mals known in the lo­cal fauna.

Ex­perts have not yet dis­cov­ered the find. A ru­ral vet­eri­nar­ian said that he has never seen such a strange skele­ton.

The dis­cov­ery caused a great in­ter­est among public. Over the past year, many peo­ple from coun­try's re­gions and Baku have came to the vil­lage to see and even buy a skele­ton. Cur­rently, the skele­ton is stored in one of the recre­ation cen­ters of Ga­bala, being an en­ter­tain­ing ex­hibit for vis­it­ing tourists.

Azer­bai­jan's his­tor­i­cal Ga­bala city of­fers a va­ri­ety of nat­u­ral and man-made sights that are sim­ply cap­ti­vat­ing.

The city is pop­u­lar with those who want to ex­plore ar­chi­tec­tural gems. Being men­tioned in the writ­ten sources of the 1st cen­tury A. D., Ga­bala was the first cap­i­tal city of Cau­ca­sus Al­ba­nia.

In the Mid­dle Ages, Ga­bala was an im­por­tant hand­i­craft cen­ter.

The sam­ples of rich ma­te­rial cul­ture found dur­ing the ar­chae­o­log­i­cal ex­ca­va­tions tes­tify that stoneware, met­al­work, bone ware, wood­work as well as pot­tery, glass pro­duc­tion, jew­eler’s art, dy­ing, tan­ning and weav­ing were highly de­vel­oped here.

To­day Ga­bala is a wor­thy heiress of the an­cient city. The city is stud­ied by sci­en­tists and at­tracts a lot of tourist from across the world.
