Caption: Australopithecus anamensis. Model of an early female hominid, Australopithecus anamensis. While A. anamensis had an ape-like jaw and brain, it stood on two legs making it the earliest bipedal human ancestor. This australopithecine lived in Africa over 4.1 million years ago. While its evolutionary history is uncertain, it is intermediate in age and morphology between the 4.4 million year old Ardipithecus ramidus and the more developed Australopithecus afarensis. Fossils of A. anamensis were first found in Kanapoi, Kenya, in 1995. This exhibition by Nordstar was photogra- phed at the Naturkundemuseum, Stuttgart, Germany.
