Speculation, not fact. Please, Paul, in the future,
can't you preface your
comments with what is fact and what is your biased speculation?
No A. africanus fossils have been found in *strictly*
littoral depositional environments. On the other hand,
freshwater deposition has preserved many vertebrates
(including A. africanus, antelope, baboon, boar, and a host
of others) in lacustrine and fluvial sediments.
