The australopithecines are only known from Africa; none have ever been found in Europe or Asia. They had ape-like and human-like characteristics. Like apes, australopithecines had long arms with curved fingers, a flat nose and strong jaw with a cranial capacity ranging from 375 to 500cc. Like humans, they had small canine teeth and had a lower body capable of bipedal walking.
