Yes, they are believed to be mythical creatures, but now scientists think that unicorns were real thousands of years ago – except they weren't the pretty white pearly things were thought they were.

A study published by the American Journal of Applied Sciences claims that newly discovered fossils found in the Pavlodar region of Kazakhstan are that of unicorns – or Elasmotherium sibiricum – which travelled the world around 29,000 years ago.

According to the paper, the unicorns looked more like rhinos than horses and stood about six feet tall, were 15 feet long and weighed around 8,000 pounds.

Unfortunately, no magical flying abilities were found but you never know, Science might definitely will improve in the future.
