Proconsul africanus is an ape which lived from about 23 to 14 million years ago during the Miocene epoch. It was a fruit eater and had a brain larger than a monkey, although probably not as large as a modern ape. It was named by paleontologist Arthur Hopwood in 1933 after chimpanzees all called Consul, which performed human like circus acts, such as riding a bicycle and playing the piano, in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Other species of the genus Proconsul have since been discovered.

  • Il Proconsul africanus è un genere estinto di primati catarrini della famiglia dei Proconsulidae, vissuto in Africa nel Miocene inferiore e medio (tra 23 e 14 milioni di anni fa). Il nome di Proconsul (che significa "prima del Consul") fu dato nel 1933 dal suo scopritore , facendo riferimento a uno scimpanzé allora famoso a Londra e di nome Consul.
  • 非洲原康修爾猿(學名:Proconsul africanus),又名原康修爾猿非洲種,是首個屬於中新世時期的靈長目化石。牠是由Arthur Hopwood於1933年所命名,其後亦有發現很多被指是非洲原康修爾猿的化石,但都被編入了不同的物種中。 非洲原康修爾猿可以追溯至1800萬年前,可能是類人猿、小猿及人類的祖先。(Louis Leakey)指非洲原康修爾猿有猿及人類的特徵,其犬齒像猿,而前肢則像人。他最初認為非洲原康修爾猿並非猿及人類的祖先,而是同時擁兩類特徵的分支,但是後來卻就其準確分類改變了好幾次意見。現時相信非洲原康修爾猿是介乎猴及猿之間。
  • Proconsul africanus est une espèce éteinte de primate du Miocène. Le principal fossile a été découvert par Mary Leakey et son équipe sur l'île de Rusinga, sur le Lac Victoria au Kenya. Des fragments appartenant à la même espèce avaient été trouvés auparavant mais ceux-là étaient plus complets. Ce fossile, vieux de 18 Ma, est considéré par certains auteurs comme un ancêtre potentiel des singes, grands et petits, et des hommes.
  • Proconsul africanus — вид приматів, який існував у проміжку 23-14 мільйонів років тому, в епоху міоцену. Примати були фруктоїдними і мали головний мозок більший, ніж інших мавп, хоча, ймовірно, не такий великий, як у сучасних мавп.
