VR013 Australopithecus Boisei
This reproduction was made, based on almost a complete find, designated as KNM ER 407 from a site at Koobi Fora, Eastern Turkana, Kenya. It represents a robust hominid on the edge of the development branch, which later became extinct. This hominid lived in eastern Africa 1 – 2 million years ago. The hominid’s crane capacity was around 530 cm3. The scientific reproduction was carried out under the expert guidance and supervision of prof. RNDr. Jan Jelínek DrSc.
