A Lovely Little Foot

April 23, 2012

“It’s a lovely little foot” declared Don Johanson, upon learning of a  new fossil find in Ethiopia. Johannes Haile-Selassie and others announced in the March 28 issue of the journal Nature the recovery of a partial foot from the Burtele area of  Ethiopia. Eight of the normally 17 bones of the hominin foot were found eroding from sandstone dated to 3.4 million years ago.
