Professor Christopher Gilbert's discovery in India.

CUNY professor Christopher Gilbert was taking a break while fossil-hunting in India when he spotted something shiny in the dirt. It turned out to be a tooth that belonged to a previously undiscovered ancestor of the modern-day gibbon. Analysis determined the tooth to be 13 million years old and led to the naming of a new genus and species, Kapi ramnagarensis.
