    (Circa 3,180,000 BC)
    Probably lived about 3.18 million years ago
    Resided in present-day Ethiopia
    Member of the species Australopithecus afarensis
    Lived to be 25 years old

    Discovered by Donald Johnson, Yves Coppens, and Tim White in the Afar Depression (1974)
    Preserved at a museum in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
    In a major gender mix-up, 'Lucy' may have been a male, as its pelvis was not very large for giving birth.
    Some religious fundamentalists try to deny its existence.
    Its skeleton is only about 40% complete.
    Its brain was much smaller than that of a modern-day human.
    The claim that it is a 'missing link' between tree-climbing apes and modern humans is still hotly debated.
    It is the most intact ancient hominid skeleton ever found.
    It was named 'Lucy' as a reference to the Beatles song 'Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.'
    It exhibits very 'human-like' teeth.
    It may have been one of the first bipedal primates (had the ability to walk upright).
    Its discovery led to a revival of public interest on prehistoric human ancestors.
