may 8, 1897982 BC - Australopithecus
Australopithecus means, "Southern Ape". Meaning that they are primitive to human and apelike. Smarter than present chimpanzee even though they were apelike. Surprisingly they were 3-4 ft. tall, looks like their aplike dna is kicking in. They did not make stone tools. I can infer that based on the Australopithecus skull that their mouth area came out a lot showing a lot of how they are related to chimpanzees. Also that their heads were quite larger than a modern humans head.
