Australopithecus aethiopicus lived in Eastern Africa approximately 2.3 - 2.7 million years ago. The species is sometimes classified in a different gensus (Paranthropus) owing to adaptations associated with chewing hard and fiborous foods. These adaptations include the pronounced sagittal crest on the top of the cranium.
This cranium measures approximately 9” long x 4” high, with a width of 6”. Au. aethiopicus had a cranial capacity of approximately 410cc.
