Hominin foot fossils from Woranso-Mille, Ethiopia at 3.4Ma with opposable big toe

Haile-Sellasie et al. Fig 2

Hot off the presses!  Haile-Sellasie and colleagues report in Nature on new hominin foot fossils from Woranso-Mille in Ethiopia dating to 3.4 Ma...and the thing apparently has an opposable big toe.  Holy cow, people.

More soon when I have a chance to read the whole thing....
