Behold Ardi (GreenYeller series)

Oldest human skeleton offers new clues to evolution is the title of an article in today’s CNN online edition (dated 01 October 2009).

“This finding points to a deeper sense of our [humans’] interconnectedness,” Samuel Assefa, Ethiopian ambassador to the United States, said Thursday. “We are all Ethiopians at heart.”


Ardipithecus ramidus from Ethiopia is neither chimp nor human. 
But Ardi shows us what we used to be.
And scientists have even given us  a picture of Ardi.



Sorry for not getting too technical here. The sketch of Ardi is a riot; couldn’t get past it.
I have dealt with this subject with due seriousness in What about Lucy, Neanderthals, etc.
