Today is a Good Day for Nerds…And Lemurs

We haven’t been this excited since we found out who Deep Throat was!

From National Geographic:

Meet “Ida,” the small “missing link” found in Germany that’s created a big media splash and will likely continue to make waves among those who study human origins.

In a new book, documentary, and promotional Web site, paleontologist Jorn Hurum, who led the team that analyzed the 47-million-year-old fossil seen above, suggests Ida is a critical missing-link species in primate evolution.

Ida even has her own site here. Evolved indeed.
