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 Böhme from the University of Tübingen, Germany. She said the ape could be the best model we have for the “missing link” between humans and apes.
