It looked like the oldest human ancestor?
Probably, it would be very interesting to talk with some of our ancient ancestors who lived thousands of years ago. In order to somehow imagine such a scenario, scientists have tried to reconstruct the face of our ancient ancestor. So, who lived several million years ago, based on the found jaw, teeth and toe bones pieces, paleontologists have recreated the face of hominin.
Most likely, so it looks our most ancient ancestor
As the first people looked?
The remains of the mysterious creatures have been found in Ethiopia in 2016 and is likely to belong to the essence of male species Australopithecus anamensis, which is considered the oldest human ancestor. The researchers were able to determine what species belonged to the skull, comparing it to a previously detected teeth, jaws and other fragments being found the body. Discovered the remains of the skull is a strange mix of primitive and advanced traits that during the reconstruction indicated he found hominin rough brown skin, large flat nose and protruding brows and cheekbones. According to the reconstruction, A. anamensis could inhabit our planet about 4 million years ago.
A. anamensis - even a monkey or man already?
Where there was a man?
Nakhodka body parts A. anamensis fills an important gap in the history of the origin of man. A. anamensis is considered the oldest known species of the genus Australopithecus, which are considered the earliest members of the human evolutionary tree. It has long been accepted that A. anamensis evolved directly to another subspecies called the A. afarensis. The most famous representative was the A. afarensis Lucy - Australopithecus female, found in the French-American expedition in Ethiopia.
You may be wondering: In the Philippines, a new species of ancient people found the remains of
Lucy - Australopithecus, which may be a human ancestor
body fragments Lucy remained at 40%, which in itself is considered to be rare in anthropology. Despite the extremely low rates of growth and weight gain, as well as the small size of the brain, pelvis Lucy is fully consistent with human, suggesting its bipedal locomotion.
But you know, looked like the teeth of our ancestors?
