It’s a really really really nice fossil…

June 3, 2009

…but it’s still just a fossil.  I’m referring to Ida, the fossil of what will soon be named Darwinius masillae, which is almost certainly not our direct ancestor.  I don’t have time to go into detail*, here’s someone else’s blog post with tons of links.

*(but I will quip that chains have links, trees don’t)
