The 3.67 million-year-old female remains belong to a new human species that has never been recorded by science.
The remains are called "small legs" of the Yeti species, half of which are believed to exist on snowy mountains. This "small foot" woman was quite older when she died and may be one of the first ancestors to start having longer legs than the arms.

She was only 1.3 m tall, an arm used to be injured when young and ate almost all plants.
The reason for calling her temporary is "small feet" because the latest analysis shows that she is a new species , completely unscientific, although it belongs to the same genus with our children. Previous studies have proven that he used to have many different species, but until now, most are extinct, only modern humans survive.

The remains were found in the 1990s and were classified as Australopithecus, a group of humanoid apes. However, the research team disagreed with the results and continued the work.

Dr. Ronald Clarke of the University of Witwatersrand in Johannesburg - South Africa said he struggled for two decades to protest the earlier classification. With scientific evidence just announced, they plan to classify this woman as Australopithecus prometheus , a new species taken from the name of the Prometheus giant in Greek mythology (the god who created humanity from clay).

Scientists found the skeleton in a rock deep in Sterkfontein cave in South Africa. Three of the four studies were published in the Journal of Human Evolution.
In addition to this precious skeleton, scientists also found many other prehistoric tools dating back to 2.18 million years in the cave.
