The fossil, of a young female that probably resembled a modern-day lemur, is described as "the most complete primate fossil ever found." It is small -- with a body about the size of a raccoon -- but it has characteristics that suggest a relationship both to primates and humans.
It has, among other things, opposable thumbs, similar to humans' and unlike those found on other modern mammals. It has fingernails instead of claws. And scientists say they believe there is evidence it was able to walk on its hind legs.

"Very nice. I have wondered the very same thing and I believe it has been proposed in some circles. I think I have seen a discovery show on the subject that current humans were planted on this planet and that is why there seems to be such a gap between us and primates(mostly brain capacity)."
So we just HAPPEN to share > 95% of our genes with chimps? Very clever of the aliens to plant a species that can barely be distinguished from the locals.
