Science In Germany, the fossil remains of an unknown ape-like has been discovered. They are about 11.6 million years old, and have peculiar characteristics. It appears in the knees, feet and hips are formed to be upright and to walk. That sheds a new light on the theory of evolution, and that means, perhaps, that our ancestors in Europe, not in Africa, the upright and learned to walk.

Charles Darwin came up with more than 150 years ago, a man descended from the ape. However, after all these years, it has remained a major question unanswered: why did the human being suddenly becomes upright again?” Or better yet, how the evolution of monkeys to human beings? After all, it is incredible that our ancestors of one of the upright and went for a walk, which is a unique feature among mammals.

it’s a hole in the theory of evolution, it is part of the so-called ” missing link.” And all of it was to come up with ideas all around the path, it was often hard (fossil) evidence.

in fact, the oldest fossils of monkeys, that two-legs was still a six-million-year-old. They have been found in the island of Crete and in the country. The newly discovered, first and foremost – to be baptized into the Danuvius guggenmosi , is about 12 million years old, some of it is millions of years older.

the Oldest fossil skeleton

In all, there are the fossil remains of at least four different individuals have been found. One of the most complete skeleton was from a man. In addition, there are the remains of two women and the young, < / i> Danuvius guggenmosi have been found. Added to the 21 bones, which are particularly well preserved.

“The findings call for fundamental questions about our prior understanding of the evolution of the great apes and humans,” says professor and research leader Madelaine Böhme of the University of Tübingen in germany, in the journal Nature. “For the first time, we were able to the various major joints such as the elbow, hip, knee, and ankle to examine a single fossil, a skeleton of this age.”
