Video - "Darwinius masillae"

Sir David Attenborough said Darwin "would have been thrilled" to have seen the fossil - and says it tells us who we are and where we came from."This little creature is going to show us our connection with the rest of the mammals," he said."This is the one that connects us directly with them."Now people can say 'okay we are primates, show us the link'."The link they would have said up to now is missing - well it's no longer missing."A team of the world's leading fossil experts, led by Professor Jorn Hurum, of Norway's National History Museum, have been secretly researching the 1ft 9in-tall young female monkey for the past two years."
