It is stated that the genetic variation present in the human species is the product of the four fundamental processes of evolution (Scupin and DeCorse, 2012). Natural selection is also said to be one of the evolutionary processes.

It is an instinct genus of members of human family tree. This hominid was there before the Homo. Australopithecus were said to have the features that resembled humans and also apes. Starting with the brain, their brains were smaller. The Australopithecus had long arms that helped them in climbing trees in search for food or protection. They had their faces that looked more like apes than humans, with slopping faces and jutting jaws.
These live 4.2 to 3.9 million years ago. As it has been said above that they resembled human and ape features, they climbed trees and also walked upright like humans. The fossils of Australopithecine were found decades ago. They were found in the Lake Turkana in Kenya to North Ethiopia. An anthropologist named Meave Leakers was responsible for officially naming the species. One of the fossils that were found in the caves was a Lucy fossil. Another species was The Taung child which was the first evidence that humans lived in Africa.
According to the findings, The Taung child was said to have been killed by and eagle. The skull fossil had holes which were made by eagle talons but some believed that it was leopard
