Danish breed horse expert and TV production company Tønnesbyrd is now publishing a series of profiles, with each horse named one to 10. The names are chosen for the way each horse has been bred by each individual breeder, but they are also based on what he or her thought was the smartest horse breed in the area. Here’s a list of ten examples.
A new study has shown that an ancient human ancestor who lived 3.2 million years ago, was a female.
She walked the land with a pair of stilt-like legs, while using her arms like a tree trimmer to cut grass, according to a study detailed by ScienceDaily.
Samples of her skeleton, preserved in sediments in East Siberia, were dated using carbon and oxygen isotopes found in her bone marrow. The evidence suggests that she lived during the Ice Age, between 4 million and 3 million years ago.
The discovery raises numerous questions about the relationship between humans and Neanderthals who were already extinct long ago, but it also adds an intriguing new chapter to what used to be the most ancient human and Neanderthal species split into two completely separate species a few million years apart.
The research team dated the bones of the female’s remains to within a decade of when modern humans and Neanderthals split apart from each other.
“By using a carbon analysis on samples of the femur, we have found evidence that Neanderthals and modern humans lived in the same place, in the same place, for many years, and that they had many close relatives,” said study lead author James Clutton-Brock, a palaeoanthropologist at the School of Earth and Space Exploration at the University of Manchester in the United Kingdom.
“This means that a genetic marker dating back to 3.2 million years ago probably belongs to the same ancestor as the modern humans.”
The researchers analyzed samples of a femur discovered near the Ust-Sof-Agam lake in northeastern Siberia. They found that the bones also contained the same genetic profile and a signature for female ancestry found in the skulls, teeth, hair, teeth, molar teeth, and teeth of Neanderthals, Clutton-Brock said.
The femur was buried in the same location as other bones from a female of similar age that may have shared the same environment, Clutton-Brock said.
The study results appear online ahead of print in the journal Proceedings
