Incredible Animation Shows How Humans Evolved From Early Life
Editor's Note: The video states that "humans have had a long history 3.8 million years in the making" when the correct figure should be 3.8 billion years. Dr. Briana Pobiner also works at the Smithsonian Institution, and not the Smithsonian Institute as stated in the video. We regret the errors.
