Nonhuman 'Hands' Found in Prehistoric Rock Art
[link to www.livescience.com]

The roughly 8,000-year-old "hands" painted on a rock wall in the Sahara Desert aren't human at all, as researchers originally thought, but are actually stencils of the "hands" or forefeet, of the desert monitor lizard, a new study finds.

These tiny lizard hands are intermingled with paintings of human adult hands, which ancient rock artists stenciled around using red, yellow, orange and brown pigments, the researchers said.

It's unclear why these ancient people used both human and lizard hands as stencils, but the finding may provide clues about the mysterious people who lived in the Sahara about 8,000 years ago, the researchers said. [Gallery: See Amazing Images of Cave Art]

"It completely changes the way we think about prehistoric people," said lead study researcher Emmanuelle Honoré, a research fellow at the McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research at the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom. "We never imagined they had such complex practices in that area at that time."

Consider that intelligent beings have lived on the earth for hundreds of millions of years and us only a couple hundred thousand.
