INDIANAPOLIS (AP) _ Researchers say they've found a nearly complete skeleton of a 50,000-year-old pig-like mammal inside a cave in southern Indiana's Crawford County.
Indiana State Museum crews have been digging in the cave for more than 25 years and found the skeleton this week.
Museum vice president Tina Sullivan tells The Indianapolis Star it is the most complete skeleton its researchers have found there.
The museum isn't saying exactly where the excavation site is in the county bordering the Ohio River that's dotted with numerous caves
The skeleton found is that of a flat-headed peccary. Research curator Ron Richards says the findings included two back legs with their knee caps, a backbone, a head, ribs, hips and the feet.
