Who is Ida?

Ida is a 47 million year old, perfectly preserved primate recovered from the Messel Pit in Germany. This is the most complete early primate fossil ever found, and scientists believe that she could be one of our earliest ancestors.
She is a remarkable link between the first primates and modern humans and despite having lived 47 million years ago, her features show striking similarities to our own.
