When researchers scanned the skull of the Taung child (Australopithicus africanus), they found structural features similar to those in the flexible skulls of modern infants. The

But, if the island were only 1 km wide, it would be missed if off just the smallest bit. Many of the measurements made while navigating involve angles, and a small error in the angle can translate to a much larger error in position when traveling long distances.
