Australopithecus afarensis

Australopithecus afarensis

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.

Lucy has had a makeover, thanks to newly discovered fossils. The reconstruction shows a distinct neck, narrower waistline, and arched foot. Earlier reconstructions, relying on scanty fossil rib bones and living African apes, had given her a cone-shaped thorax and potbelly. But in the past few years, researchers have found additional ribs and a new foot bone of A. afarensis. The ribs are curved, which translates to a barrel-shaped thorax. And the foot bone shows a distinct arch.

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 afarensis is an extinct hominid that lived between 3.9 and 2.9 million years ago. A. afarensis was slenderly built, like the younger Australopithecus africanus. It is thought that A. afarensis was more closely related to the genus Homo (which includes the modern human species Homo sapiens), whether as a direct ancestor or a close relative of an unknown ancestor, than any other known primate from the same time.[2] The most famous fossil is the partial skeleton named Lucy.
