JOHANNESBURG - Scientists at Wits University have unveiled the skeleton of Little Foot.

 

 

The skeleton was discovered more than 20 years ago near Johannesburg.

It is about 1.3 metres long and is really a small creature, but Professor Ron Clarke has managed to piece it together over the course of 23 years.

Remarkably human-like, the fossil is a hominin, a species which predates humans.
