According to this small article in Science & Vie>November>2006:
An Australopithecus baby (around 3 years) was found in 2000, right next to the famous Lucy. What’s the interesting is the analysis that showed that this kid was able to walk on 2 feet and live on trees.
Do you remember how they used to portray evolution? They show us an animal on 4 members that gradually stands on his feet and becomes human! Well this shows that humans and humanoids might have evolved from animals living in trees.
Of course this is no shock, last year in college we studied this subject, scientists have long noticed the resemblance between the bone structure of apes that live in trees and the human bone structure…
But in fact this discovery actually proves that Australopithecus are probably our cousins and not our ancestors.
Am I the only one to find this interesting?
