    So, the chimpanzee is of the Troglodyte primates?
    Of the Cenozoic era, which of the earliest epochs has it been well documented?
    The slide of the Ardipithecus Ramidus is pretty scary. What’s up with the oblong head?
    Are the robust types the Neanderthals?
    Is the fossil record unable to make that connection?

  2. The scientific name for chimpanzees is Pan Troglodytes.

    I’m not sure what you want to know about the Cenezoic era? If you’re talking about human evolution it’s all in the Pliocene and Pleistocene.

    Aww, I think Ardi looks nice : ), kinda reminds me of Bigfoot!

    The term “robust” by itself means big and definitely in comparison to a modern human the Neanderthals were robust. In this particular lecture which is like 3.5 million years before the Neanderthals, the robust types are the genus Paranthropus.

    I sorry, I don’t understand your last question!
