Reasoning
A fossilised skeleton of a lemur-like animal recently found in Germany could be a missing link in the evolutionary chain of human ancestry. Jorn Hurum, a palaeontologist from Oslo, Norway, and his team have studied the 47 million year old fossil and say it provides a link between lemurs and the higher primates that include apes, monkeys and humans. The lemur-like creature, named ‘Ida’ has characteristics similar to those of higher primates including short limbs, nails instead of claws, hands that can grasp things, and opposable thumbs. The most remarkable thing about the fossil is that it is so well preserved, showing evidence of fur and soft tissue as well as the remains of a meal. However, a biological anthropologist at George Washington University, Brian Richmond, says it provides only one branching point in the evolutionary tree and there’s still a big gap in the fossil record. Ida’s discovery probably provides more questions than answers.
