        The Missing Link: Ardipithecus | Your Inner Fish

        Anthropologists have used the skeletal remains of our ancestors to fill in the missing gaps between modern humans and chimpanzees. Contrary to the common theory, and using new evidence from a species of 4.4 million-year old human ancestor called Ardipithecus ramidus, scientists now know that early humans began walking in forested environments rather than on savannah plains. Ardi is a controversial discovery, and since they grew to only four feet tall, some scientists believe the species was more of an extinct lineage of ape, rather than a true human ancestor.
