I ran across this story and thought I would share it and give some opinion about it.
The back story is is pretty simple and believable.
Some miners were looking for diamonds and found this mummified creature deep in the mine. Reportedly the unknown creature was found in a sandy layer that dates from the Mesozoic, which would date the creature between 252 and 66 million years.
The creature, as seen in the picture, is described as being small with big teeth. The thought is that the creature became naturally mummified or preserved due to being buried and the surrounding conditions.
According to the report scientist are now trying to find out exactly what this creature might be. Some have suggested that it could be some kind of dinosaur while others have speculated that it some kind of ferret. To me, it could possible be a mink or something from the weasel family. It appears to have a tail.
Of course, this could all very well be nothing more than a hoax but it looks pretty real to me. If I was guessing I would say that it is actually a known animal and that the scientist will be able to find out what it is....but we probably will never hear about it.
