Amateur cave explorers in South Africa’s famous Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site recently made a remarkable discovery: exquisitely preserved remains of a previously unknown evolutionary human ancestor.

Jeff is thrilled and perplexed by the nature of the find, while Anthony is pretty sure they’s aliens.
