Very old animal - level 1
Scientists found a 55-million-year-old fossil. They found it in China. The fossil is a primate. The fossil is important because scientists thought the primates started in Africa. But now it is a time for a big change of this idea.
Scientists made a picture of this animal on the computer. It is like a small monkey but it has hands like a man. This animal lived during the day, not at night. This is new information too.
Scientists will study this fossil. They will know more information soon. It is very interesting.
Interesting words: scientist (clever person who is an expert in something), fossil (rock with picture of an animal), primate (animal like a monkey, gorilla or man), thought (past form of think).
