The Top 10 hominin #FossilFriday tweets of 2020

A special list to celebrate the New Year… A little tradition on this blog is to collect my favorite hominin #FossilFriday tweets of the year, from number 10 to 1. This is the sixth list!

What is 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 & tweet about hominin fossils. One more time, let’s start!
