Beijing, Chinese archaeologists have unearthed several brontothere fossils dating back more than 34 million years in the city of Lingwu, Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region.

The discovery of the fossils has provided important evidence of stratigraphic division and a new direction for the research of mammal fossils in Ningxia, according to the archaeologists, according to Chinese media outlets.
