For those of us that not only accept evolution but are interested in it there has been a discovery in Ethiopia that is very exciting. I know, just another hominid, eh? Well this is the oldest bipedal ape found. What makes this really interesting is...
"This skeleton helps us to understand what happened in the joints, how walking upright occurred, what we never had before" stated one of the paleontologists working on the project.
The creature was determined to have been bipedal due to its ankle structure but as the earliest one found it could help provide a significant new frame in the picture show of our development.
