Australopithecus africanus was an early hominid, an australopithecine, who lived between ~3.03 and 2.04 million years ago in the later Pliocene and early Pleistocene.[2] In common with the older Australopithecus afarensis, Au. africanus was of slender build, or gracile, and was thought to have been a direct ancestor of modern humans.

A Closer Look at Evolutionary Faces-- John Gurche, a “paleo-artist,” has recreated strikingly realistic heads of our earliest human ancestors for a new exhibit.

Australopithecus garhi, first stone tool users (Act 5). "This appears to have many of the characteristics of the other Australopethcines but differs in that it has large molars, like the Paranthropus species. The partial skull fossil was found in association with stone tools. This may be the earliest species to use these."

Australopithecus garhi is an australopithecine species. The hominin remains are believed to be a human ancestor species and possibly the direct ancestor to the human genus, Homo.

Australopithecus sediba.

An early relative of humans chewed on bark and leaves, according to fossil evidence. Analysis of food trapped in the teeth of the two-million-year-old "southern ape" suggests it existed on a unique diet of forest fruits and other woodland plants.
