  • Germans were able to walk upright before everyone else

    Senational fossile discovery in Bavaria.

    Fossile remains of am unknown great ape species (now christened Danuvius guggenmosi) that lived 12 million years ago and already was able to walk upright
    (i.e. it is more than 6 million years older than any other upright walking great ape species that has been found so far)

    A new great ape species which lived in Europe? It is kind of amazing they are only finding out about its fossils now.

      Did they find the rod stuck up their ass that forced them to walk upright?

        Probably because they are so old.
        All Fossiles we find are the result of very good conditions (that were well enough to preserve them over all the millions of years).

        I guess that the temperate climate of europe isn't well suited for the preservation of fossils.

        Also there is another factor:
        Europe has been rather densely populated for thousands of years. I guess this resulted in the loss of huge numbers of possible fossils.
        People dug holes for their buildings, found fossils (but didn't actually recognize them, at this time, as what they are) and tossed them away onto some garbage pile, where they got lost.
        Or they broke stones in Quarries (which contained fossiles) and they now are either part of buildings or, as well, are now vroken into tiny pieces.

        So, I guess the lonely arid environments of Africa or Australia (and some regions of the USA) are much better suited for the preservation of fossils ...
        and the discovery of fossils that are millions of years old is much rarer in europe than elsewhere.

        It surely would be fascinating to know, what else can be found in european soil

          They learned to walk upright so they could march into Poland

              No, I did not steal that from somebody on Something Awful.

                          I don't think so but if you insist.
