Early supposed hominid walked on all fours?

Recommended Posts

Eldorado

A new report challenges the theory that Sahelanthropus tchadensis, a hominid that lived more than 6 million years ago, was our earliest known human ancestor.

French paleontologists uncovered a Sahelanthropus in Chad almost two decades ago. 

Nicknaming it 'Toumai,' they heralded the creature as an early biped — with a skull indicating it had an erect spine.
