Incredible fossil find!

An incredible fossil find was announced earlier this week. 

 

The early fossil lemur. The fantastic find is about 47 million years old and shows remains of fur and its last meal. This fossil is really significant because it is thought to be the missing link between present day higher primates and distant ancient relatives. This could be a distant cousin to modern day humans.
This fossil is highly significant becasue is shows a mixture of primitive and advanced features not seen before in the same animal.
