Toumai, the Oldest Human Ancestor

Toumai, the Oldest Human Ancestor

Available on Prime Video
The oldest human ancestor recorded to date, better known as Toumai, is seven million years old and has just "crash-landed" in the world of the living. The fossil is a mostly complete cranium with a brain comparable in size to that of a chimpanzee. While some scientists suggest that it may be an early gorilla, it shares characteristics with other hominids known to be bipedal and a distant relation.
