Ton ancêtre a marché ici il y a 3,7 millions d'années

Quelle extraordinaire découverte:

A series of 13 fossilised footprints left behind by one of our pre-human ancestors about 3.7 million years ago have been found in Tanzania.

Besides offering us new insight into the evolutionary pathway that made humans the way we are today, the footprints suggest that a pre-human species could have grown to be much taller than previously thought.

(...) While 165 cm (5.5 feet) isn't exactly tall by today’s standards, early human ancestors were not thought reach those heights for another 1.5 million years after the footprints were made.
