    Thanks a lot, Chris.

    IMO, it's an enormous scientific mistake in paleo-anthropology to keep following the savanna running nonsense & not considering the coastal dispersal or littoral theory of human evolution.

    PAs who still believe that our ancestors ran over open plains after herbivores are hopelessly outdated, and should not be called paleo-anthropologists IMO.

    Google "two incredible logical mistakes 2019 verhaegen".

    Apes & australopiths have nothing to do with the littoral theory, they were swamp forest & wetland dwellers, not unlike bonobos & lowland gorillas who still often wade bipedally in search for AHV (aquatic herbaceous vegtation). Google e.g. "bonobo
    wading" or "gorilla bai".

    But the littoral theory (a better term than "aquatic ape") is not about apes or australopiths, but only about archaic Homo, esp. early-Pleistocene, who followed the southern Eurasian coasts, islands & rivers as far as Java, Flores etc.
