As reported in the New York Times, new fossils discovered in Kenya confirm MANY homo species hung out in East Africa two million years ago. It wasn’t just our big brained, tool using, standing to attention ancestors. We had company.
The new species is thus far being referred to 1470. As boring a name as that is, I’m confident a MUCH worse name can be coined. Here are my dumb ideas:
- Homo Humoralis
- Homo Narcissisalis
- Homo Sexalis
- Homo Self-Destructalis
