Sahelanthropus tchadensis model. Reconstruction of the Toumai specimen of the hominin Sahelanthropus tchadensis. This extinct species existed around 7 million years ago. It may form part of the earliest branches of the human evolutionary tree, but may date from before the divergence that led to chimpanzees and humans. The Toumai fossil was discovered in Chad in 2001. Reconstruction by Elisabeth Daynes of the Daynes Studio, Paris, France.
