Human-Like Species "Homo Naledi" Discovered (PHOTOS)

Scientists have recently discovered human like species "Homo Naledi" in the Rising Star cave in the Cradle of Humankind world heritage site outside Johannesburg.

According to Berger, a professor at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa he and his his team uncovered fossils - consisting of infants, children, adults and elderly individuals - in a previously isolated chamber within the cave.
