Size: 7&¾"L x 5&¾"W x 5"H 

-Species: Australopithecus afarensis 

-Notes: Australopithecus afarensis is the best represented early hominid with approximately 100 fossils representing the species, including the famous “Lucy” specimen. The australopithecines are only known from Africa; none has ever been found in Europe or Asia. They had ape-sized brains: their cranial capacity ranged from 375 to 530 cc. They had strong jaws with large teeth. Like modern gorillas the adult males were much larger than the females. The babies probably took approximately the same length of time to grow up as a modern chimpanzee or gorilla. We are now offering economy versions of our most popular hominin crania which are designed to give educators affordable, high quality, highly detailed and durable replica hominins for hands-on study. Our resins capture fine details, and unlike materials such as plaster or hydrostone, are lightweight and shatter resistant. They are perfect for introductory level courses in anthropology and evolution.
