Human ancestors learned to walk upright in the trees, say experts
...e techniques were later used by human ancestors to allow
them to adapt to walking on two feet on the ground. Around 15 million years ago the tropical forests which once covered East Africa began to break up, and although the forest sometimes grew back temporarily, eventually trees became separated and f...
