should be C

bones need to be "those" of animals, they are not animals

bones are assumed to be the remains, they are the remains, not those of the remains

C too.
A, B, E are out because misplaced modifier.
D is missing "those" in front of of. Also, assumed to be sounds better.

I think C

"those" is required in the first part of the sentence to establish whose bones we are talking about.

A: the bones are now known to be prehistoric animals??? thats illogical.

B: known as from large prehistoric animals, ungrammatical.

D: those (in second part) is not needed, because the remains is already stated

E: those (in second part) is not needed, b/c the remains is already stated
