Caption: Australopithecus afarensis gathering fruit. Illustration of a group of Australopithecus afarensis hominins gathering fruit. A. afarensis is one of several extinct hominin species that form an early part of the human evolutionary tree. It lived between 3.9 and 2.9 million years ago during the Pliocene. It is named for Ethiopia's Afar depression, where the A. afarensis fossil 'Lucy' was found in 1974.
