YOUR INNER FISH | How Do We Know When Our Ancestors Lost Their Tails? | PBS


Unlike most primates, apes don’t have a tail. When did our ancestors lose this potentially useful appendage? Paleoanthropologist Holly Dunsworth introduces us to Proconsul, a fossil ape that gives us some answers.

YOUR INNER FISH premieres Wednesday, April 9 at 10/9c following NATURE at 8/7c and NOVA at 9/8c as part of PBS’ THINK WEDNESDAY.
