About this hominid: Sahelanthropus tchadensis is an extinct species of the Homininae (African apes) dated to about 7 million years ago, during the Miocene epoch. The species, and its genus Sahelanthropus, was announced in 2002, based mainly on a partial cranium, nicknamed Toumaï, discovered in northern Chad. The braincase, being only 320 cm3 to 380 cm3 in volume, is similar to that of extant chimpanzees.
