New Human Species Found 05/17/2017 Karma: 2  
In 2015, researchers discovered 1,500 human fossils in South Africa, including 15 individuals. Out of this discovery, they discovered a new species of human: Homo naledi.

This new species had a very small brain but long legs. Researchers were able to tell that it was a long-distance walker and good climber. However, they could not figure out how old the fossils were.

Recently, the researchers found more fossils of this species in the same area and were able to date the fossils by using electron spin resonance dating on three teeth. The results showed that the original fossils found were between 236,000 and 335,000 years old.
