Oldest Fossil Ever Discovered on Earth Returned to Uganda.

Remains of what is believed to be the oldest fossil ever discovered on Earth has been returned to Uganda.  The fossil was discovered by a joint team of Ugandan and French scientists last year on July 18th at Napak, near mount Moroto, in Karamoja, North Eastern Uganda and is called Uganda pithecus Major.

This is the oldest, most complete ape fossil ever to be discovered on Earth and is believed to be aged between 19 and 20 million years.
