Rare ape cranium fossil uncovered in China

A team of American and Chinese researchers have uncovered a rare fossil – the cranium of a young ape from a site in Yunnan province, China that dates back to the Miocene period, some 23 to five million years ago.
The cranium of the juvenile ape, Lufengpithecus, is only the second relatively complete cranium from a young ape from the Miocene record that has ever been unearthed.
