Exclusive: Controversial Skeleton May be a New Species of Early Human

More than twenty years after it was first discovered, an analysis of a remarkable skeleton discovered in South Africa has finally been published — and the specimen suggests we may need to add a new species to the family tree of early human ancestors.

The analysis also found evidence that the species was evolving to become better at striding on two legs, helping us to understand when our lineage first became bipedal.

The specimen, nicknamed “Little Foot”, is a type of Australopithecus, the group of hominins to which the famous fossil “Lucy” belonged. Lucy’s species is called A. afarensis, but we know of several other species of these human-like primates living in Africa around 2 million years ago, including A. africanus.
