Australopithecus afarensis Economy Cranium
BH-001-EC $183.00

2.9 to 3.6 MYA. Australopithecus afarensis is the best represented early hominin with approximately 100 fossils representing the species.

We are now offering economy versions of our most popular fossil hominid crania which are designed to give educators affordable, high quality, highly detailed and durable replica fossil hominids for hands-on study. Our resins capture fine details, and unlike materials such as plaster or hydrostone, are lightweight and shatter resistant. They are perfect for introductory level courses in anthropology and evolution.

The australopithecines are only known to have existed in Africa; none has ever been found in Europe or Asia. They had ape-sized brains: their cranial capacity ranged from 375 to 530 cc. They had strong jaws with large teeth. Like modern gorillas, they were sexually dimorphic, in other words, the males were larger than the females. Our BH-001-EC A. afarensis cranium is a generalized representation of a male afarensis—it's not reflective of any one specimen.
