Lost & Found, and Lost Again

Ida, the perfectly preserved fossil, was welcomed to the world with large press coverage not too long ago. A 47-million year old ancestor hailed as the "eighth wonder of the world" and more importantly, our missing link. However, there are many skeptics, scientists included. Supposedly Ida is a missing link, but not for the human race, but between other species further down the evolutionary tree. Post this image on the back of milk cartons just in case...
