Partial tibia(knee bone) provides strong evidence for bipedality. Primitive (ape like) cranial morphology and a derived (human like) postcranial morphology. Ethiopia (hadar, omo and fejej) and tanzania (laetoli) Complex morphology exhibiting some ape like traits (ex. saggittal crests) and hominine-like traits (e. g. valgus knee) Big toes hardly diverged from the rest of foot, unlike in chimpanzees. Gait was heel-strike followed by toe-off ; the way modern humans walk. Dental features differ from those in australopithecines afarenis. Postcranial features similar to those in australopithecines afarenis. Remarkably primitive hominine at such a late date. Large face, huge zygomatics, large skull crests, and enormous teeth. Morphology broadly similar to that seen in australopithecines aethiopicus. Contemporaneous with members of the genus homo. Small anterior teeth and large posterior teeth, which are covered in thick enamel. First fossil member of taxon: homo habilis, which means handy man .
