Anat Harrel alerted me January 25, shortly after this story broke in The Times of Israel.

I didn’t know why these archeology professors were grinning so about these teeth belonging to “Miss Lia.”

Then I saw the name of the cave – “Misliya.”


And if Baby Bear were to crawl in, I would expect to hear, “Somebody’s been sleeping in my cave.”

Here’s a description of how this fossil discovery impacts evolutionary theory.
