Researchers Discover Creature They Believe to Be Earliest Known Ancestor of Humans


Researchers have discovered the earliest known ancestor of humans - along with a vast range of other species.

They say that fossilised traces of the 540-million-year-old creature are "exquisitely well preserved".

The microscopic sea animal is the earliest known step on the evolutionary path that led to fish and - eventually - to humans.

Details of the discovery from central China appear in Nature journal.

The research team says that Saccorhytus is the most primitive example of a category of animals called "deuterostomes" which are common ancestors of a broad range of species, including vertebrates (backboned animals).

Saccorhytus was about a millimetre in size, and is thought to have lived between grains of sand on the sea bed.

  • Certainly a strange-looking creature.  It's making the same face I do every time I go online and see the day's news!

    Does anyone actually believe we "evolved" from that .....and before that a few earlier steps, a rock? 
    Ephesians 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

    Sometimes I like to roll around in the dirt and pretend that I'm a carrot in order to get in touch with my past
