Caption: Human evolution. Artwork of the evolution of hominids from our distant ancestors to present day humans (Homo sapiens sapiens). 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. Since then there have been at least 15 different intermittent species discovered including, for example, Australopithicus afarensis, Paranthropus boisei and Homo erectus.
