I was fascinated as a child of paleoanthropology . I was about 9-10 years old when I tried with much joy and excitement to reconstruct a head of Australopithecus . My parents , especially my mother was not thrilled with my early passion for ancient apes . One day , she absolutely forbade me to reconstruct prehistoric apes . Mother's decision disappointed me but I had no choice. My mother was and is a very religious woman and I think my concern for ancient apes conflicts with religious ideas . Many years have passed since then, but my attraction to prehistory remained intact . A few years ago I accidentally saw a reconstruction of Kennis brothers . I think it was a Neanderthal . It amazed by the talent and originality . They have re - started my passion for paleo anthropology .
I created this blog to my satisface my pleasure to bring to life humanoids that lived many millions of years ago. It's fascinating !

Spanish) is an ancient karstic region of Spain, in the province of Burgos, Castile and Leon and near Atapuerca and Ibeas de Juarros.

Skull identified by Fowke as a young woman between 20 and 25 years of age. He reported that the burial was flexed, on her right side with her head towards the east. The "near perfect" condition of the skeleton and the shallow depth of burial would suggest that the burial was made during the Mississippi Period or Historic Period. The photograph shows a prognathic face that is very robust.

Gigantopithecus a fost o specie de maimuta care a trait in urma cu aproximativ o sută de mii de ani. Gigantopithecus blacki avea in jur de 3m inaltime si peste 540kg. Extinctia acestei specii nu a fost brusca cu siguranta , un numar redus de exemplare supravietuind pana in perioda neolitica, cel putin. Asa se explica povestile devenite folclor, cu gigantul paros, Yeti. A trait in zonele vaste ale Chinei de azi. Datorita dimensiunilor mari, cu siguranta nu avea un trai arboricol, ci mai degraba biped. Probabil ca specia a ajuns sa populeze si zonele de nord ale americii, Alaska si Canada, ajungand acolo prin stramtoarea Bering, alimentand legenda lui Bigfoot. Au fost identificate trei specii G. blacki, G. bilaspurensis si G. giganteus. Nu cred ca mai exista vreu-un exemplar acum, dar povestile transmise din generatie in generatia, l-au facut inca prezent si viu, pana in zilele noastre.
