Unicorns, Fact or Fiction

When you hear the word unicorn, what do you think of? If you're hungry, you may think of corn, the ubiquitous yellow vegetable. If you’re like most people who have already ate today, you probably imagine a horse with a horn.

A horse with a horn. Haha. Nonsense. Impossible. Never. Unicorns are merely animals of either tame, or wild and perverse fantasies.

But what if I told you, there was a time that unicorns and people roamed the planet at the same time! And that these unicorns did not look like what you typically imagine when you think of unicorns, single stalks of corn. Rather, they kind of looked like fluffy rhinos. If this intrigues you, check out this article from  .
