The earliest shoulder blade in the human fossil record, this bone is very gorilla-like in shape. Its upward-facing shoulder socket (in contrast to our more laterally (sideways) oriented one) lends tentative support to the idea that in addition to walking bipedally on the ground, A. afarensis spent time in the trees.

This is a reconstruction of Lucy, a 3.2 million year old Australopithecus afarensis. She represents one of our earliest evolutionary ancestors. She has a combination of human and gorilla-like traits, had a brain the size a third the size of a modern human's, and regularly walked standing up. She probably didn't maker her own tools, but used implements she found in nature. She probably lived in a small troupe with her family and friends, traveling from place to place to find food.
