We knew it!! Unicorns are real! But there’s a catch.

The good news: The ‘Siberian unicorn’ did actually roam the planet — and it was much more recently than originally thought.

The bad news: It looked nothing like the mythical creatures portrayed in so many fairy tales.

Fatter. Furrier. Looks more like a rhino than a stallion.

But it did have that huge horn we love so much!

This real unicorn, or ‘Elasmotherium sibiricu’, was originally thought to have gone extinct 350,000 years ago.

But a well-preserved fossilized skull found in Kazakhstan reveals the shaggy creature was still alive and walking this earth a mere 29,000 years ago, according to a study published in the American Journal of Applied Sciences.

There is now some mystery surrounding how it survived so long.
