Caption: Human evolution. Computer artwork of the skeletons of an ape-like animal and a human (Homo sapiens) separated by a molecule of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid). Comparisons of DNA and fossil records suggest that humans and modern African apes evolved from a common ape-like ancestor. The ancestors of humans diverged from the ancestors of today's African apes, which include gorillas and chimpanzees, between 5 to 8 million years ago.
