Recently a new large predator the Fosa was found somewhere, anyone remember that one. Also, I think in southern Australia, a 12,000 year old find of a not very sapien looking human was found called the Kow Marsh human. I saw one of their skulls in the new evolution exhibit at the Smithsonian identified as a homo sapien. I looked a lot more like a Heidelbergensis, not even a Neanderthal. If you go to to exhibit it is in the lower right hand corner of the wall of skulls.
Kow Swamp Archaeological Site
[snip] The Kow Swamp archaeological site comprises a series of late Pleistocene burials within the lunette of the eastern rim of a former lake known as Kow Swamp. The site is located 10 km south-east of Cohuna in the central Murray Valley, in northern Victoria... The site is significant for archaeological excavations by Alan Thorne between 1968 and 1972 which recovered the partial skeletal remains of more than 22 individuals. [/snip]
