Ida: "The Link"

Very interesting discovery 47 million year old discovery.

I know it has been a few weeks since we have finished chapter 1 First Humans. But, seeing this when I came into school today reminded me of the Richard Leakey quote that is in our text:
“Theories on prehistory and early man constantly change as new evidence comes to light.”
-Richard Leakey
This discovery is pretty amazing. Amazing because so much of it is perfectly preserved. Check out the video: Watch the "Link" Video
Quotes from the clip:
"It's hard to think of anything else in primate evolution that is as complete as this fossil."

"It's really an important specimen..." "It's really a rosetta stone." "The most complete fossil primate ever." "This is like a holy grail for paleontologists."
