Scientists recommend a new human ancestor

A new kind of man, the gay bodensis, comes to be added to the complex puzzle of evolution. Scientists re-evaluated old fossils and concluded that it was probably the direct ancestor of modern man. Homo bodoensis lived 500,000 to 600,000 years ago in Africa, but later moved to the Eastern Mediterranean and Southeastern Europe.

The different human species

Today the only species of the genus Homo that has survived is the Homo sapiens. But once upon a time, different human species lived on Earth and may have coexisted. The most recent major discovery was the small Homo Floresiensis, discovered on the Indonesian island of Flores.

But scientists are now proposing the existence of a new species, the gay bodensis, named after a 600,000-year-old skull. It was found in the Bodo D’ar area of ‚Äč‚ÄčEthiopia in 1976. This new species will now be attributed to many fossils that had hitherto been identified as Homo heidelbergensis or Homo rhodesiensis. Homo bodoensis will now be described as the majority of Middle Pleistocene fossils from Africa, as well as some from SE Europe, while several other fossils in Europe will be considered to belong to Neanderthals, which will virtually wipe out Homo heidelbergensis. which was so named from a 609,000-year-old skull found in Germany).
