    Its age is about 3.2 million years.

    Lucy was an adult female of about 25 years and was assigned to the species Australopithecus afarensis.

    About 40% of her skeleton was found, and her pelvis, femur (the upper leg bone) and tibia show her to have been bipedal, although there is evidence that afarensis was also partly arboreal (tree-dwelling).

    She was about 107 cm (3'6") tall (small for her species) and about 28 kg (62 lbs) in weight. LUCY
