Ethiopia fossil human link 2012 3 29

A tiny fossil found in Ethiopia links humans to a small species that probably lived in trees 3.4 million years ago, about the same time as "Lucy" (Australopithecus afarensis). Here is a sculptor's rendering of Lucy, whose fossilized remains are the most complete example of the species, at the Houston Museum of Natural Science, August 28, 2007 in Houston, Texas.
