Australopithecus is a genus of extinct hominins that are closely related to modern humans.

They lived in Africa from about 4 million to 1.4 million years ago, during the Pliocene and Pleistocene epochs.

Australopithecus were bipedal, meaning they walked on two legs, but they had small brains and large teeth compared to humans.

They are sometimes called "southern apes" because the first fossils were found in South Africa.

Some of the most famous species of Australopithecus are:
  • Afarensis, which includes the famous fossil "Lucy" that was discovered in Ethiopia in 1974.
    This species lived 3.9 to 2.9 million years ago and had a mix of ape-like and human-like features.

  • Africanus, which was the first Australopithecus species to be named by Raymond Dart in 1925.
    This species lived 3.3 to 2.1 million years ago and had a larger brain and smaller teeth than A.afarensis.

  • Aboisei, which was also known as the "nutcracker man" because of its massive jaws and molars.
    This species lived 2.3 to 1.2 million years ago and was adapted to eating hard foods like nuts and seeds.

  • Asediba, which was discovered in 2008 in South Africa.
    This species lived 2 to 1.8 million years ago and had some features that are similar to the genus Homo, such as a smaller face and a more advanced pelvis.

Australopithecus is considered to be an ancestor or a close relative of the genus Homo, which includes modern humans and their extinct relatives.
However, the exact evolutionary relationship between the different species of Australopithecus and Homo is still debated by scientists.
