'amazing' would be the implied meaning i think. i'm pretty sure thats one of the ones reconstructed using forensic techniques from a replica of the actual skulls.

I know this is science, but I found this amusing.

It's probably just me. :D

 

I'm more than a tiny bit skeptical... Are they just getting all of this from the hyoid and the ribcage? I can't imagine what else they would have to go on.

They got a computer to say 'E' like a species that was extinct thousands of years ago...who is funding this?
