Australopithecus afarensis

New reports are out about a 3.3-million-year-old partial skeleton found in 2000 in the Dikika region of Ethiopia. The skeleton belonged to a presumed female, about three years of age. A. afarensis, of course, is the species to which the specimen known as "Lucy" belonged. Details (and photos) here.

Hat tip to Afarensis.

Edit: Afarensis now has more here.
