This partial skull with both right and left upper molars of Palaeoloxodon huaihoensis was recovered from the Penghu Channel. Palaeoloxodon huaihoensis once lived around Huaiho River, northern China in Middle Pleistocene. The Taiwan strait were transformed to exposed shelf due to the sea level dropped by glacial advance. The new land can be inferred to have allowed large mammals, such as Palaeoloxodon huaihoensis to migrate, explore and inhabit it.
