We argue that heavy-ion collisions provide the best testing ground for mini-black hole physics as M P ≃ 4GeV for the gravity dual of YM and give concrete evidence for a new extra dimension, that is visible only to the strong interactions. We analyse the process of production evolution and decay of the mini-black-holes by using recent results on gravity duals of YM. There are several novelties compared with the traditional story of black hole evaporation, including Bjorken scaling instead of

It is argued that high-multiplicity/high energy pp collisions will also show similar characteristics of mini-black-hole production and decay.
