From the Independent UK:
Swiss and Syrian archaeologists working in Syria's Palmyra desert claim to have uncovered the remains of a giant camel that lived 100,000 years ago and once stood "as big as a giraffe or an elephant".
The specs are three meters tall at the shoulder, and four meters tall to the top of the head. The beast extends the history of the dromedary back about 90,000 years. Not only that, the human remains found nearby indicate that this 13 foot camel was killed by men as it drank at a spring, but it is unclear whether the early men involved were Neanderthal or Homo Sapien.
