I hope this comment will not will not associate me with the
'hidden terrestrial race' idea, but I don't know that it has
been established that the "bipedal human evolved from the
requirements of a tree-dwelling animal that needed to adapt to
the wide open spaces of the African savannah". There are a
variety of well-established animals in the savannah that show no
hint of evolving toward bipedalism over the timescale in which
human ancestors did so. If there is selection pressure for
bipedalism in the savannah, why are we the only example of it?
