The Australopithecus afarensis lived in the eastern sections Africa between
four and three million years ago, this specie was a long-lived species, which basically means that there kind, didn’t
die out for a long time. These were the first kind of human to work the planet.
This species existed around 2.3 and 1.2 million years ago and was mainly found in the
eastern parts of Africa. This species represents the most extreme version of the early humans in eastern Africa. Paranthropus
boisei had a skull highly specialized for heavy chewing. They flourished in the drier savanna areas that existed in eastern
Africa at the time but when there was a drastic weather change they couldn’t cope and they died off.
This species existed around 2 to 1.6 million years ago, it also was found in eastern Africa
and in limited parts of southern Africa. This was a small species and only stood at one meter in height. They had relatively
long arms but a small face with a developed nose.
This species existed around 1.5 million
years ago, these species had no home and wonder from place to place and followed the food. They had extremly large brains and were the first of there kind to have sweet glands. So this ment that they
could run for days on end hunting for there food. They also were the first of there kid to make stone axes and discover the
art of fire.
These species lived more that 500 thousand years ago and there brain capacity was as almost as large as ours. They
had some sort of a very basic langue and used this to surround animals and capture them. But the thing that makes them so
different from us today is that they didn’t burry there dead.
These species lived over 140 thousand years ago and were a very short bunch of people, in fact they were only 5 and
half feet. Because of there size they had very short limbs so that there body doesn’t have to produce excess heat. They
had broad noses used for cooling the creature down so he doesn’t sweet. They could with stand tremendous amounts of
These are the first forms of you and I; there brains are the size of our and their
body has the same type of limbs ours do.
