        Early Evolution of the Human Hand | Your Inner Fish

        From fossil evidence, scientists have been able to recreate the Notharctus, a 50 million-year old primate relative and a keystone in the story of human evolution. It's skeletal structure shows us that the earliest primates were climbers, just like modern monkeys, adapted to live in the trees. The structure of the hand, in particular, shows a remarkable similarity to our own human bodies as well.
