This is a museum quality reproduction of a Mrs. Ples STS 5 Skull. The Mrs. Ples skull, designated STS 5, was discovered by Robert Broom and John T. Robinson in Sterkfontein, Transvaal, South Africa in 1947. Although originally considered female, study of the roots of the canine teeth has cast serious doubt on it's gender, leading most to believe it is,in fact, from a sub-adult male instead.

Mrs. Ples is the popular nickname for the most complete skull of an Australopithecus africanus ever found in South Africa.

Fossils are just too costly and some are one-of-a-kind that can only be viewed at museums. This fossil reproduction is an exact copy of the actual fossil. The replica Mrs. Ples STS 5 Skull measures 185mm long.

Price: 200.00
