Female Australopithecus africanus. This model shows a reconstruction based on fossil remains found at Sterkfontein, South Africa, dating to around 2.5 million years ago. A. africanus, which lived between 3 million and 2 million years ago, is one of several extinct species that form an early part of the human evolutionary tree. Studies of its teeth suggest that it was omnivorous. It ranged throughout much of Africa.
