Good Ida

This video from BBC News shows the famous 47 million-year-old lemur-monkey thing (the technical term is Darwinius masillae) called Ida. It gives you a good idea of the fossil’s size, as well as showing it in some detail. The really surprising thing is that it was discovered 20 years or so ago, but has only just been unveiled because it was in private hands. Whether or not she (the fossil) is important in evolutionary theory, she’s certainly a wonderful remnant of a creature.
