Caption: Australopithecus sediba fossil hand. These casts of hand and lower arm bones are part of an exact replica of Malapa Hominin 2 (MH2), one of two of the most complete fossil skeletons found of Australopithecus sediba. A. sediba is one of a number of species that form part of the early human evolutionary tree. These fossils date from around 1.9 million years ago in the early Pleistocene. They were found from August 2008 at Malapa Cave in South Africa. MH2 is an adult female. Replicas provided by the University of Witwatersrand, South Africa.
