Greek paleontologists find rare prehistoric primate skull

Kriopigi, Greece: Paleontologists in northern Greece have unearthed the intact skull of a prehistoric primate that lived at least five million years ago, a member of the research team said on Wednesday.

"The skull still carries the bite marks of a large carnivore, it ranks among the best preserved ever found," Aristotelio University assistant professor of geology Evangelia Tsoukala told AFP.

"It gives us a complete image of the animal, as it preserves all its facial characteristics."
