Published on August 3rd, 2011 | by Sevaan Franks0
The 20 million-year-old specimen comes from the site of an extinct volcano in Uganda’s north-east Karamoja region.
The scientists say preliminary analysis showed the tree-climbing herbivore was roughly 10 years old when it died.
The skull is about the same size as that of a chimp, but its brain was smaller.
