New Homo Species

As you are teaching your students about the variations of the homo genus, you can tell them that apparently we are not done as a new one, Homo neledi was just discovered in a remote cave in South Africa.  Both the WashPost and National Geographic report about it.  The most amazing part of the find is that even though the neledi have a small brain, they clearly had a ritual for their dead.
