Afarensis can be reached at: afarensis@charter.netafarcomp3

Afarensis is a 3.5-2.8 million year old hominin from the Kada Hadar member of the Hadar formation in the Middle Awash, Ethiopia. He is approximately 41 inches tall, weighs approximately 60 pounds and has a cranial capacity of a whopping 410 cc (approximately). Afarensis is currently considered to be transitional between apes and humans and displays some traits of both. Since he spends a lot of time on the couch watching monster movies, some observers question whether he is an obligate biped (although no one has observed him climbing a tree). He also has a blog called Transitions: The Evolution of Life

Afarensis is also the current proprietor of The Four Stone Hearth. The Four Stone Hearth is a bi-weekly blog carnival devoted to all things anthropological.
