Ethiopia - Lucy's 'great-grandfather' found
Anthropologists say they have discovered the 3.6 million-year-old partial skeleton of a creature that came from the same species as Lucy, but was 400,000 years older and at least as good at walking upright. Their analysis suggests that upright walking, the trademark trait for humans and their extinct kin, goes back further in time than some might have assumed.
This skeleton, described in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, has a much longer name than Lucy: It was dubbed Kadanuumuu, which means "big man" in Ethiopia's Afar language. Like the 3.3 million-year-old Lucy skeleton, Kadanuumuu was found in the East African country's Afar region, and shares the species name Australopithecus afarensis.
Australopiths are fossil species that share some traits with chimpanzees - for instance, protruding faces and small brains - but share other traits with humans. Most importantly, their skeletons appear to have been built for upright walking. Arizona State University paleoanthropologist Donald Johanson, who discovered Lucy back in 1974, said the latest discovery adds to a "treasure trove" of hundreds of australopith fossils from East Africa.

Right now Meles Zenawi must be working the phones trying to sell this fossil. Lucy has been sold a couple of years ago. It is now somewhere in a museum in USA. Hopefully, they will send some replica back.
Don’t you have any thing sensible to say? What has Meles got to do with the fossil? Every thing doesn’t have to be about politics does it? You know very well that dinknesh is NOT sold.
PLEASE try to rid your mind from the junk it is occupied by now!!!
Wait a minute! can some one show me the picture of Meles LUCIAWI and compare it with this one. Just observe the front face and the head…hahaha…..we have the new Homosapian in Minilik palace.
and the replica would be you Gotata!
Man! this people are joking
Congradulation to all geologist, antropologist, etc. for your hard work.
My message is this I am created in the image of God, I am a human being not animal, the first man created by God Adam from soil and water and breathed his holy breath through Adam’s nostrile to be life after that he saw Adam alone he created his wife Eve out of Adam’s ribs not from animal. God command them to have children to fill the earth. God command Adam to govern, rule all the animal kingdom under him
I refused to accepte to be animal, I am a child of the most high God period!!!.
Ethiopian children are God’s children!!!
God bless Ethiopia & its people
Is n´t it the weyannes self made PM. that monkey…what was his name???
I am sure the Al-shababa will be confused to see this image couse they have the same picure that says
“” Dead or a live” of weyannes leader. For crime he commited in somalia.
Are u kidding me? That was the original ID of meles at shoot and run hide outs of adwa-caves, before he went on fully transplants of facial formation,chin restorations,forhead subtraction, face lift renovation,nose addition, brain demolation, superficial gums extraction, eye-balls liposuction. God could have made one from scratch than repairing the un-mendable.
gotata, You rascal vagabond!
You just want to relate anything, any news, about Ethiopia with PM Meles whether it’s good or bad, whether it’s politics or not.
Meles changed the country positively for good and make Ethiopia to be recognized by outside world more than ever. You should be thankful with his leadership.
These are the kind of people working hard to tarnish the name of Ethiopia.
It is good news that it would make Ethiopia to attract more scientists to do more research
MELES IS LOOKING GOOD. WOW
Don’t make me laugh. I am not a monkey and have a creator.
You have an interesting story line about creation.
I wonder way this transformation evolution stopped. By now we human should change to something else
SHE IS HOT!
Gotata, your name, or what ever you chose to be known with, says it all…GOTATA!!! And beleive me, for anyone to look at our ancestory Meles does not need to sell Kadanuumuu, you are there available who is not to far from those creatures, evolution wise I mean!!
Ape or Sew. Make the distinction. You should ask yourself where you came from. Are you killing inocent women and children? if the answer is yes, then you came from an ape. Do you belive in love and peace? if the answer is yes, Then you came from Sew. Because God created us out of love not hate. Wake up…
Kokeb, You seem to be very very familiar with the plastic surgery procedure,,,just asking, I have learnt a lot.
Gotata his face value worths a lot higher than your attitude. Why are you so unhappy like this, you shouldn’t hate yourself. Its no good, develop a positive attitude, you can be a better person.
Probably this new discovery will give us a hint(clue)about Obang Metto. This time I am sure that we will be able to know whether Obang is from Darfur or Ethiopia.
Great Mamo you are right GOTATA is GOTATA MIND Meles why he sell Lucy and he got Gotata which needs to be sold by cheap price because of his weak mental
