Australopithecus sediba reveals how human ancestor walked, chewed, and moved

Quote:
A team of scientists has pieced together how the hominid Australopithecus sediba (Au. sediba) walked, chewed, and moved nearly two million years ago. Their research, which appears in six papers in the latest issue of the journal Science, also shows that Au. sediba had a notable feature that differed from that of modern humans—a functionally longer and more flexible lower back.

Pretty cool.

In Anthropology class we'd call them 'Aussies'...no relation to the modern ones of course. Loved that class, and kept it as an extra class just for the hell of it. Learned so much more in it about us as a species than I did in any Sociology course.
