I’m no paleontologist, but…

So I think by now everyone’s heard about Ida, the 47 million-year-old, nearly-completely intact fossil that was unveiled a couple of days ago.

Raised on a steady diet of Indiana Jones growing up, I’m a total sucker for any super cool archeological find. And I am loving me some Ida. She’s so cute!


Picture a la the New York Daily News.


Scientists are saying that they think she might be a precursor to humans. I’m not sure I totally agree with that. That cuteness looks familiar…
