SUPER-Cool photo! Especially for having been taken in a museum which can be especially challenging to get any more than a basic souvenir shot!

Whoops..how to keep up with ALL YOUR COMMENTS!?
Hi Rimly, I think these bones are a wee bit older than me...around 3.5 million years old, found in Ethiopia.
Since then, even older bones have been found dating back 4.5 million. Follow that link if you're interested as very informative.

Jim said...

Hi Jan. Recognise any similarities? They reckon we may all be descended from Lucy.

Leah Griffith said...

Wow! She needs to put some meat on those bones! I guess this means we're family;)
