There was a time when the Arctic was not that cold, so no Eskimos. During the recent period (25,000 BC), the Arctic climate has changed rapidly. Hippos and rhinoceros roamed as far north as France, and of course, mastadons in the Arctic region, which would not have survived if there was not enough vegetation.

"Warm weather would have predominated as far north as the Polar basin. Finds of fossils of Azolla floating ferns in polar regions indicate subtropic temperatures at the poles. The Messel pit biota, dated to the middle of the thermal maxium, indicate a tropical rainforest environment in South Germany."

Dravidian race is a fake terminology. Dravida is of Sanskrit origin and its a geagraphical term for Tamil Nadu and Kerala for a land around three seas.

Here the word evolution
Dravida (Sanskrit) - Dramila/Damela (Prakrit) - Tamil
(in Tamil language D and T are used interchangeably)
Incorrect. "The origin of the Sanskrit word drāviḍa is tamiẓ ("Tamil")."
Dravidian people - Wikipedia

All Indians used to speak Dravidian before the Aryan Invasion.

I think we know that quite precisely. They were in Pontic Steppes around 7,000 BC, in Central Asia around 3,000 BC and in India around 2-1.500 BC.
Yeah, Niroshan, Wikipedia also has this opinion.20 to 25% even after conversions cannot be from outside India. Your mention of Billavas, Bhils, Meenas, Matsya, etc. also is quite possible.
You can dream of coming from wherever.

Are you kidding? Rig Veda has words that have drav in them. Normally drava is associated with wealth in Rig Veda. There is no consensus on what the word Tamil means - even among Tamil scholars, let alone the Wikipedia boys.

Yes, rhinos roamed far North, but they were wolly rhinos, not the ones you see in tropical countries. And mastodons had a lot of fur on them, and they lived in North America.

And no matter how much you fantasize, the Vedas were indigenous and the flora and fauna has a distinct signature of Indian subcontinent.

Sorry, I misnamed them. They were woolly mammoths.

"The woolly mammoth (Mammuthus primigenius) is an extinct species of mammoth that lived during the Pleistocene until its extinction in the early Holocene epoch. It was one of the last in a line of mammoth species, beginning with Mammuthus subplanifrons in the early Pliocene. The woolly mammoth diverged from the steppe mammoth about 400,000 years ago in East Asia. Its closest extant relative is the Asian elephant."
