Description   Exhibit Opening: Australopithecines. They were part-ape and part-human and they lived only in Africa. Australopithecus sediba, a sensational new fossil find from South Africa, the subject of this exhibit, was amongst the last of them. The species appears to have died out around two million years ago, but its anatomy approximates that of the earliest humans, the genus Homo. Anthropologists hypothesize that as sediba died, so Homo was born. Fossil casts on loan from the Embassy of the Republic of South Africa, Washington, D.C. Exhibit ends on December 18, 2012.
