YOUR INNER FISH | The Human Hand A Gift from Ancient Primates | PBS


Our hand shares its basic shape with the hands of all other primates. What did the earliest incarnation of this hand look like? Neil Shubin pays a visit to Jon Bloch, who shows us a remarkable fossil of Notharctus, an early primate with a hand that you may recognize.

YOUR INNER FISH airs Wednesdays, April 9-23 at 10/9c following NATURE at 8/7c and NOVA at 9/8c as part of PBS’ THINK WEDNESDAY.
