  • That is a really strange way for it to be phrased, but I guess you can't expect much out of Wikipedia. No living species or species that exists is really an ancestor of any other species. Furthermore, the chances are very small that any fossils that are found are the ancestor of a living species, you can only say that this fossil is related to what the ancestor is thought to be.
