What are the differences between homo sapiens sapiens and homo erectus?
Homo erectus lived 1.8 million years ago and hunted for food with hand axe. They also protected themselves with fire. While, Homo sapien sapiens discovered technology. They are also still alive.

Homo sapiens are human beings. They are a species of primate thathas 2 subspecies, Homo sapiens neanderthal (extinct) and Homosapiens sapiens (us!). The Neanderthals lived over 10,000 yearsago. Homo sapiens is the scientific name for the species ofprimate known as "humans." the scientific name for… humans. Homo is our genus and sapiens our species. (MORE)
ANSWER . Modern man is Homo sapiens , sometimes referred to as Homo sapiens sapiens , to distinguish us from archaic Homo sapiens or possible subspecies of Homo sapiens , including Neanderthal man. Some African fossils that may be archaic Homo sapiens , are sometimes referred to as Homo sapi…ens rhodesiensis . Various speciments have been dated to between 200,000 and 400,000 years ago. . The earliest modern Homo sapiens fossils have been dated to around 200,000 years ago. This has been confirmed by two separate DNA methods, using 'non-recombining' sections of the genome. . they actually lived about 100,000 years to 35,000 ago (MORE)
Homo sapiens sapiens lived on the earth and are believed to have originated from Africa and then spread to Asia, Europe, and Australia. Eventually, they migrated to north and south America.
It depends on whether you think Neandertals and modern humans were members of the same species, in which case it would be: Homo sapiens sapiens and Homo sapiens neanderthalensis (i.e., they were simply different SUB species) OR whether you think they were two separate species: Homo sapiens and… Homo neanderthalensis . Homo = our genus name 'sapiens' = is our species name. Note that you ALWAYS write the genus name with the species name because two species might have the same species name. For example, Pan paniscus and Ateles paniscus . (MORE)
We humans eat pretty well anything that will hold still long enough.. food...Homo sapiens sapiens are modern humans, so they eat anything you have ever heard of anyone eating. And some things you've never imagined anyone eating...
homo sapiens = "Taong nag-iisip". Homo sapiens ay ang pang-agham na pangalan para sa mga modernongtao.
eh... nobody really knows that, but i think that it was too hot and they existed... O_o
Ardipithecus ramidus . Australopithecus afarensis . Homo habilis . Homo erectus . Homo sapiens . Homo sapiens sapiens(modern humans)
Homo Sapien sapien is said to be the currently top version of humans and it is the modern man we see today. It is said that H. Sapiens have become extinct around 50000 years ago to be replaced by the people we see today. Literally, we are the "wise, wise humans".
Homo sapiens are modern Humans. There is virtually no species on Earth that Humans have not hunted.
Cro-Magnon is an informal word once used to refer to people who lived alongside Neanderthals toward the end of the last ice age (around 35,000-10,000 years ago). The name came about because in 1868 parts of five skeletons were found in a cave by that name located in the Dordogne Valley of France. …Recently it has been considered that the physical dimensions of 'Cro-Magnon' are not sufficiently different enough from modern humans to warrant a separate designation. Essentially, we're a bunch of Cro-Magnons. The differences between these early modern humans and us are slight and may be attributed to a different life style (hunting and gathering verses TV watching and video game playing). Some, though, insist there is a physical difference that indicates the Cro-Magnons are a really different people from us. There is not enough bones to look at. There is not, at present (and maybe never) enough of a sample size to settle the argument. (MORE)
The similarities between Homo erectus and Homo sapiens fall under many categories such as physical, intellectual and social. By its name, Homo erectus, we already know that it is an upright creature that would walk on two legs much like Homo sapiens; this upright posture was offered through a simila…r limb structure to the Homo sapiens. A further notable similarity between the two is the teeth that are hominin and do not resemble teeth of apes. . Another quality Homo erectus shared with Homo sapiens, and not apes, falls under the category of intelligence. While it is true that some apes are known to employ tools in their day to day lives, their tools are simple things like sticks, twigs, or stones however; Homo erectus is known to be the first to gain a control over fire, seek shelter in caves and create a number of stone tools that fall under the Acheulean category which took place during the lower Palaeolithic periods. This type of stone tool is credited only to Homo sapiens and Homo erectus. . Under the social similarity between Homo erectus and Homo sapiens is simply the tendency to live and hunt in groups.

i also had that question in s.s the answer is that they lived in houses
. Australopithecus, Homo habilis and Homo erectus are different from Homo sapiens because the Homo sapiens have a larger brain mass and larger skull structure.

And th…e Australopithecus africanus, Homo erectus and Homo habilis where they had ape like brains but human like jaws and were bipedal. (MORE)
Homo erectus are different from Homo sapiens in many ways. First, Homo erectus has a thick skull and a forward sloped forehead .In comparison, Homo sapiens have thinner skulls and their heads don't slope forwards. Homo sapiens have advanced verbal and written language however, Homo erectus does comm…unicate with a less complicated verbal language which involves simple gestures and hand motions along with simple noises like grunting or other small sounds. Homo sapiens also have more sophisticated tools such as stoves, beds, microwaves, guns etc. While Homo erectus man only had less advanced tools such as bows, axes, flint and others. Homo sapiens also have religion, and ceremonies. Some religions homo sapiens have are, Christianity, Hindu, Judaism and many others. Homo erectus didn't have any religion because they couldn't communicate with sophisticated verbal language. Homo erectus had no clothes but, homo sapiens did. Overall, homo sapiens differ from homo erectus because of many reasons such as appearance, tools, language, and many others. (MORE)
No, H. sapiens arose out of local populations of H. erectus in Africa, Asia and Europe. Although, there is the single origin hypothesis theory that modern humans (H. Sapiens) arose out of a single population of late H. erectus in Africa around 150,000 years ago.
Homo habilis was an ancient form of pre-man which went extinct 1.4 million years ago. Homo Sapien and Cro-Magnon are the same thing. Cro-Magnon was an early form of modern human. Homo sapien refers to modern humans.
The genus (always capitalized) and species (never capitalized) are someties followed by a third word which is the subspecies or race. Here Homo sapiens is the genus and species .
homo sapiens is the scientific term (genus and species) for human beings. Human beings have used everything for weapons from pointy sticks and rocks to nuclear weapons. Could you be a bit more specific? If you are referring to cavemen, then spears, bow & arrows, and axes.
Well we are homo sapiens, and due to that fact we hav a big verity of looks. it depends on what sex and country / regen of the world you come from
This is the convention in the system of binomial nomenclature (two-part names) developed by Linnaeus in the 18th century. In the Linnaean system, the first word of a binomial names the genus (a group of similar and closely related species) and is capitalized, and the second word names the species wi…thin that genus. The genus name, but not the species name, can be abbreviated to its first letter. In some cases the binomial may be extended by the addition of a subspecies name. In current anthropological thinking, the genus Homo contains modern humans ( H. sapiens ) as well as the extinct species H. erectus , H. habilis and H. eraster , and perhaps several others whose status is still in dispute. Neanderthal Man is variously considered a separate species, H. neanderthalensis , or a subspecies of H. sapiens . In the latter case, Neanderthals are known as H. sapiens neanderthalensis , and modern humans as H. sapiens sapiens . (MORE)

Homo sapiens is the scientific name for modern human beings.

Homo Sapiens Sapiens are modern man and i think the important ability that i learned was that we can think. I'm not so sure though.
We use houses, tents, huts, shacks, caves, tower blocks, lean to, holes in the ground, vehicles, etc
Homo Sapiens Sapiens refers to modern human beings, being us. Whatever religions you know of today are our religions, as well as some that have been forgotten, or are still practiced more secretly. Christianity, Buddhism, Judaism, Islam, Wicca, Taoism, Hinduism, Shinto, Mithraism, and the list goes …on. (MORE)
Homo habilis was the earliest of these three hominids and perhaps the most ape-like of them, though it did not stop habilis from being the first known hominid to make and use stone tools. Homo erectus was their later descendant. Erectus was smarter, though their brains were still a little smaller th…an ours. Homo sapiens may be the cleverest of the trio, though we cannot undermine what habilis and erectus had accomplished-habilis discovered how to use and make stone tools, erectus spread across the world and learnt how to use and make fire. Note that the answer to this question is answered in terms of intellegence between the three species. However, the three species never interacted. Habilis died out around 1 million years ago. Erectus first appeared at around this time, but died out 70 thousand years ago. There is no known evidence of erectus and sapiens interacting. (MORE)
Homo Sapiens Sapiens also include modern day human beings as well as our ancient ancestors so its hard to say.
homo habiles first then homo erectus then homo sapien neanderthalensis then the homo sapien sapiens
The Neanderthals were far more robust in structure than the Homo sapiens. They also had amazing projection in their nasal cavity, thought to have provided more surface area for mucus to warm the cold frigid air before entering their bodies. Homo Sapiens, however, have far smaller nasal cavities, as …we do not live in such a cold environment. Homo Sapiens also have smaller and rounder brains than the Neanderthals, and steeper foreheads as a result. (MORE)
Homo sapiens are just barely taller, 1.5 to 1.8 meters on average, while Homo erectus is 1.778 meters. The forehead rises sharply on the Homo sapiens, and eyebrow ridges are very small or more usually absent, and the chin is prominent, unlike the Homo erectus.

These are all species that are members of the genus Homo, which includes modern humans and closely-related species.
The oldest examples of Homo Sapiens is from the Omo remains, presumably dating back to 195,000 in Ethiopia. It was another 60,000 years until Homo Sapiens remains become prolific and visible in other parts of the world. This supports the "out of Africa" theory that Homo Sapiens, like many of the oth…er hominid species evolved in Africa and spread out from there. Homo Erectus is mostly found in other parts of the world. There is no clear consensus within the Palaeoanthropology community whether Homo Erectus is a direct link to Homo Sapiens or whether Homo Sapiens came from within a different line that existed at the same time in Africa. There were many different hominid species that existed during this time frame, and indications are that it may be the most diverse period of hominid specie existence in the earth's history. To date, Homo Sapiens is the only known hominid with a high forehead, flat face, and thin, flat brows. It resembles much more closely Homo Heidelbergensis than Homo Erectus. (MORE)
Homo sapiens sapiens is the most modern form of homo sapiens sapiens and is dated 180.000 years ago. Many studies say that he lived at 100.000 years ago. It is debatable through scientists.
Erectus is the first supposed humanoid species that was walking on 2 legs. It lived between 40.000 years and 1.8 million yers ago. Homo Sapiens is the human species of today, and is not considered to be much more than approx 200.000 years old. Regards.
Larger size, more upright and fluent motion, and more prominent forehead and less prominent brow are all major differences between Homo sapiens and other members of Homo . However, perhaps the most important contrast is the drastically increased cranial capacity of Homo sapiens , which is surpas…sed only by Homo neanderthalensis , which is extinct. Sapiens is also the only member of its genus that is not extinct. (MORE)
Translated literally from the latin it meant "man wise wise" or wise wise man and it means man who knows - and knows that he knows - ie he has a sense of his own being. It is what truly distinguishes us from other sentient beings.

The Homo floresiensis was smaller than Homo sapiens. Also Homofloresiensis had sloping heads as well as thick eyebrow ridges.

I believe that you're talking about the early humans... because we're Homo sapiens. I don't think they did, but they may have had some sort of body language or starting to make formations of the mouth then. I don't think actual language was created until after fire was discovered because of the mout…h and brain formations along with when it all occured which wasn't long after the early humans came to be... In a scientific view. However in a religious view, the first humans (Adam and Eve) did have a language because they could speak to God in a verbal form. (MORE)
No, because Homo Sapiens were very strong and muscular, but in a way yes they are like us. They look like us, talk like us, and are highly skilled and intelligent like us.
They first appeared when god created Adam and Eve and sent them down to the world....which was mabey millions of years ago.
Modern man (homo sapiens) and neanderthal man (homo neanderthalensis) are closely related. They both belong to the genus homo, and the time periods in which the two species lived overlap. Neanderthals lived between 500,000 (ish) and 30,000 years ago, and modern humans first showed up around 200,000 …years ago (modern in appearance, though not necessarily in behavior). DNA evidence even supports the idea that members of the two species inter-bred successfully! There are, however, differences: neanderthal humans had a more pronounced nose, and a slightly larger cranium (brain compartment) than modern humans. Both species made and used tools, however neanderthal tools were much more primitive. It is suggested that neanderthals were better adapted for a colder climate, which may have led to the eventual supremacy of modern humans as the planet warmed. (MORE)
Because the ice age affected alot. their hair started to fall of and their diet changed.
So they can trap there prey and catch it easier.Unlike Lucy the first prehistoric human bone found
That's you, me and seven billion others. Early Homo sapiens (modernman) emerged about 30,000 years ago although there is some evidencein South Africa that pushes this back to about 100,000 years.
The problem is that some of the erectus finds are actually ape andothers clearly sapien and these two have sometimes been mixed orblended giving the appearance of them being one creature (we sawthis in Java Man and Peking Man). The evidence could just as wellindicate both species living in close pro…ximity and one eating theother but nothing indicated social/sexual interaction orreproduction. Thus any speculation on cultural comparisons would betainted by the plausibility that this has occurred. Though thecurrent beliefs are dominated by the errors of appeal to authorityand argumentum ad populum we actually know very little factuallyspeaking. Renowned evolutionist Ernst Mayr, ( What Makes BiologyUnique? , p. 198, Cambridge University Press, 2004) revelaed tous that " The earliest fossils of Homoâ¦ are separated fromAustralopithecus by a large, unbridged gap. How can we explain thisseeming saltation? Not having any fossils that can serve as missinglinks, we have to fall back on the time-honored method ofhistorical science, the construction of a historicalnarrative . " That being true what happens is revealed here...David Pilbeam in,"Pro-Evolution", Vol. 14, p.127, "... in my own subject ofPaleo-anthropology the "theory" heavily influenced by implicitideas, almost always dominates data...ideas that are totallyunrelated to actual fossils have dominated theory building, whichin turn strongly influences the way fossils areinterpreted.
