From left to right and top to bottom: ADN, proto-cell, prokaryote cell (bacteria), Eukaryote cell (flagellate), colonial protozoans (planula), Kimberella (possibly the oldest known Bilaterian from the fossil record), a Vetucolian (enigmatic animal that could have been basal deuterostomian), Haikouichthys (one of the earliest vertebrate), Arandaspis (one of the earliest jawless fish), Guiyu (the earliest known bony fish), Psarolepis (a basal Sarcopterygian), Panderichthys (another sarcopterygian close to the ancestry of the tetrapods), Tiktaalik (the famous fishapod), Acanthostega (early tetrapod), Ichthyostega (another early tetrapod), Hylonomus (the earliest known amniote), Ophiacodon (a basal synapsid), Biarmosuchus (a basal therapsid), Thrinaxodon (a cynodont), Adelobasileus (the earliest known mammaliaform), Eomaia (the earliest known Placental), Purgatorius (a basal plesiadapiform, once thought to be a mesozoic primate), Plesiadapis (a plesiadapiform), Aegyptopithecus (an early haplorhine), Proconsul (an early hominoid), Ardipithecus ramidus (an early Hominini), Australopithecus afarensis, Homo habilis, Homo erectus and Homo sapiens.

Interesting although in reality the Homo sp. males would be far more likely to carry the spears.

Yes, maybe but I wanted to depart from how this is generally represented...

Fascinating piece! But if I'm not mistaken, isn't the Human Lineage H. Habilis, Eregaster , then Heildbergensis? Granted with some of the older specimens offshoots would have to stand in for actual ancestors.

Yeah, I think it is the current view nowadays: H. habilis -> H. ergaster -> H. heidelbergensis -> H. sapiens...

EPIC!!

Thank you so much for doing this. I'm trying to conjure up a good evolutionary piece in my mind and this is a huge help!
