Caption

Illustration of a male and two female Paranthropus boisei hominids. P. boisei (previously known as Australopithecus boisei) lived in eastern Africa around 2.3 to 1.2 million years ago. Their skull was highly specialized for heavy chewing. Their massive molar teeth, with the thickest enamel of any known hominid, are thought to have been an adaptation to a diet of tough plants.
