Fossils of Ape with Human Like Legs Discovered


Fossils of an ape with human like legs discovered .The ape had arms suited to hanging in the trees, but human-like legs.
Researchers found that the fossil is a clear evidence on how humans have got legs to walk.Until now the earliest fossil evidence for walking upright dates back to six million years ago. The four fossils – of a male, two females and a juvenile – were unearthed in a clay pit in Bavaria .
“The finds in southern Germany are a milestone in palaeoanthropology, because they raise fundamental questions about our previous understanding of the evolution of the great apes and humans,” said Prof Madelaine B√∂hme from the University of T√ľbingen, Germany. She said the ape could be the best model we have for the “missing link” between humans and apes.
