Ursus Ladinicus, branch of the Museum Ladin
Außenstelle vom Museum Ladin
The Ursus Ladinicus is a branch of the Ladin Museum and is all about a cave bear bearing the same name. In autumn 1987, numerous bones were discovered by Willy Costamoling from Corvara in a cave just below the summit of Piz Conturines at an altitude of almost 2,800m.
The remains of the cave bear date back to the interglacial period (about 40,000 years ago) and indicate a new species of cave bear never before recorded.
