Fauna from Cova de Bolomor (Middle Pleistocen, 350.000-150.000)

Vitrina 2
Skeletal remains of 16 species have been documented In Cova de Bolomor (Tavernes de Valldigna, Valencia), most of them accumulated as a result of subsistence activities of human groups. Deer are the most frequently hunted species along the entire sequence; although horses and thars are taxa indicators of a harsh climate in these early periods. The steppe rhino stands out among the great mega-herbivores in these phases. The presence of carnivores and omnivores in the cavity is very sporadic (wolf and macaque). The appearance of small animals such as rabbits in the cave could be due to mixed deposition models (by humans and owls) or exclusively natural ones.
