Lower Jaw of Ancient Primate

May 10, 2012
Illustration showing the lower jaw of a 37 million-year-old Egyptian primate, Afradapis. Recent research shows that Afradapis was not in the evolutionary lineage leading to monkeys, apes and humans, as had been debated. Instead, they are more closely related to living lemurs and lorises.
