IDA - The Missing Link

/ Wednesday, May 27 /

The 47-million-year-old "missing link" fossil - known as Ida - believed to be man's earliest ancestor was discovered in Germany in the 1980s. This discovery according to David Attenborough in a BBC Documentary - Uncovering Our Earliest Ancestor: The Link - is set to change our understanding of evolution. It has nails and fingers just like primates, therefore it could be the most complete fossil primate ever found (female: strong, muscular and grasping hands and feet makes her living high top trees as the best guess).
