12 Hominins of Evolution

Just a silly video I did for a Facebook profile picture game. There are plenty of species I left out, and some of these aren’t necessarily human ancestors (in particular, the two Paranthropus species, which were evolutionary dead ends). I chose the ones to feature based on the trivial criterion of image availability for mostly-intact cranial remains. They run from most recent to most ancient, because most of these species were around a lot longer than we have been — so they would get more “air time” in the full song.
