Meet the earliest baby girl ever discovered

d bone. Its morphology in the Dikika girl is similar to that of African great apes and different from that of humans. This bone is unknown for any extinct human ancestor species except for one Neanderthal specimen, and is presumed to have important role in human speech, giving us some clues to understand the nature and evolution of the human voice box. Finally, preparation of the new fossil is still in progress. Elements that are discussed here were investigated only partly. Also, it was not possible at this stage to examine many parts of the skeleton, particularly the ribs, the vertebrae and the collar bones and to analyze their relevance to the locomotor behavior of A. afarensis. When this is done in the future, however, a clear picture of the body plan of baby human ancestors will emerge and will be crucial for addressing questions pertaining to behavior, body proportions, height and skeletal development in early human ancestors.
