Australopithecus boisei aka, Paranthropus, aka, Zinjanthropus

2.4-1.4 Million Years Ago

Australopithecus boisei aka, Paranthropus, aka, Zinjanthropus was an early hominin, described as the largest of the Paranthropus genus (robust australopithecines). It lived in Eastern Africa during the Pleistocene epoch from about 2.4 until about 1.4 million years ago. First discovered by anthropologist Mary Leakey on July 17, 1959, at Olduvai Gorge, Tanzania, the well-preserved cranium (nicknamed "Nutcracker Man") was dated to 1.75 million years ago and had characteristics distinctive of the robust australopithecines Paranthropus boisei proved to be a treasure, especially when the anthropologists' son Richard Leakey suggested it was the first hominin species to use stone tools.
