The recently discovered skeleton of an australopithecine boy sits on display at the Iziko South African Museum in Cape Town, April 24, 2010. The fossil is one of two partial skeletons unearthed in a South African cave that belong to a previously unclassified species of pre-human dating back almost 2 million years and may shed new light on human evolution, scientists said on April 8, 2010. Fossils of the bones of a young male and an adult female suggest the newly documented species, called Australopithecus sediba, walked upright and shared many physical traits with the earliest known human Homo species.
