Australopithecus africanus lived between 2.1 and 3.3 million years ago. Although now recognized as a likely ancestor to the genus Homo, many scientists initially rejected the idea that this species was part of our evolutionary tree. This model is based on the enigmatic Mrs. Ples, discovered in 1947.
This skull measures approximately 6” long x 5” high, with a width of nearly 5”. The cranial capacity for this species was between 460 and 485cc.
