hominids: Wise Man
by: Alexarae Campo
Homo Sapiens Neanderthalensis
The Homo sapiens neanderthalensis hominid group is shorter and stockier than modern humans, but they had large brains. They had hunched over backs, and believed to drag their hands on the ground, while they walked. They had thick bones and a ridge above the eyes. This hominid group was more human then ape.
They lived by, making tools, like knives, scrapers, and spear points. This helped them live by making life easier. They also had 60 different tools that have been found. They cared for each other, by if one person in the group got injured during hunting, the other people in the group would help them.
Their special capability that helped their group to survive was they hunted in organized groups. This would help them because it would be easier to hunt large animals with a lot of people instead of it just being by yourself.
