The Top 10 hominin #FossilFriday tweets of 2018

Another year-end list! This one is becoming an old tradition on this blog… My favorite hominin #FossilFriday tweets of 2018, from number 10 to 1.

What’s a ‘FossilFriday’? Every Friday, people post pics of their favorite fossils using the hashtag #FossilFriday, mainly on Twitter. This can be about famous specimens, odd fossils, museum collections, rare photos, scientific papers or blog posts. I love to join it & tweet about hominin fossils. Now, let’s go!

10. Unusual picture of a very iconic fossil, ER 1813 Homo habilis:

9. New studies on old fossils. Did Cro-Magnon 1 have neurofibromatosis type 1? 

8. This gorgeous hand of Australopithecus sediba

7. The only Dutch Neandertal. Found in the North Sea:

6. Chris Stringer is probably the greatest #FossilFriday contributor:

5. 3D casts are never missing in this list. And this one is really nice:

4. This beautiful pic of Sangiran IV maxilla:

3. The impressive Harbin skull. How could have it be hidden for decades?

1. Lee Berger’s answer really made me laugh!
