Approximately 3,300,000 BC: Human predecessor Australopithecus possesses the skull of an ape, but teeth and hands similar to those of later 20th century man

The apeman may nest in trees for protection from saber tooth tigers and hyenas. One such apeman dies after entering a cave near future Johannesburg South Africa.

As of 1999 AD a disparity exists between finds of human and Great Ape fossils of this vintage (zero Great Ape fossils of this age have been found). One of the wilder possibilities is that modern Great Apes may split off from human predecessors much later in the evolutionary game than 1999 AD scientists will believe.
