Human evolution. Computer artwork of the skeletons of an ape-like animal and a human (Homo sapiens), a molecule of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid, bottom), a spiral representing a fossil and running figures (upper left). 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.
