Diminutive humans in trees

25 May 2010

At http://news.discovery.com/human/get-ready-for-more-proto-humans.html May 24th ... there is a story of another hominid addition to the human fossil bank, Homo gautengensis. Found in South Africa and just 3 feet tall it spent a lot of time in trees and had big teeth adapted to chewing plant material. The past few years have witnessed a lot of new discoveries and it seems anthropologists have in the possession bones that await study and clarification.
