Today the small, preserved fossil of Ida was unveiled at the AMNH. Ida is a lemur-like primate, approximately 9 months old at the time of her death, which occurred 47 million years ago. It’s mind-blowing to say the least!
“Bloomberg called the finding an “astonishing breakthrough.” The unveiling today coincides not only with the publication of a scientific paper, but also with the release of a new book about the fossil — “The Link,” (Little Brown and Company, 2009) — and a documentary also called “The Link” and set to premiere on the History Channel May 25. ” via Livescience.com
