520    Located at the southwest corner of Lake Turkana in 
       northern Kenya, Lothagam represents one of the most 
       important intervals in African prehistory. Early human 
       remains are restricted in distribution to Africa and the 
       acquisition of an upright bipedal striding gait, the 
       hallmark of humanity, appears to be at least 
       circumstantially linked to the reduction of equatorial 
       forests and the spread of grasslands on that continent. 
       The diverse Lothagam fauna documents the end-Miocene 
       transition from forested to more open habitats that were 
       exploited by grazing horses and antelopes, hippos, giant 
       pigs, and true elephants. It also includes spectacularly 
       complete fossil carnivore skeletons and some of the oldest
       human remains.
