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.
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".
logs, stones... . dug pits and cover it with branches, animal skins, and leaves. . But, they mostly lived in caves.
Homo sapiens are modern Humans. There is virtually no species on Earth that Humans have not hunted.
i also had that question in s.s the answer is that they lived in houses
There was a rush of many homo species in the period homo sapiens came alive, all of them similar, but different in some ways, and after a while homo sapiens were the ones that got it right and got the superior neocortex compared to the other species of homo, and that's why they died out and we didn'…t, so in other words, the reason we have an advanced neocortex is because we evolved in a different way than the other homo species, so there is no reason why we got it, we just evolved in that way, and as a result we survived with the superior brain (MORE)
Honestly, no one knows. There are several competing theories, and it is possible that each is correct to some degree. We suspect that about 30,000 years ago, groups crossed Beringia (the land bridge that existed across the Bering Straits. They followed herds possibly, down through present day Canad…a into the center of North America, and eventually spread to the rest of the western hemisphere. The problem with this are the sites in lower North America (the 15,000 year old Buttermilk Creek complex is one) and down the west coast of South America that appear to refute this. Most recently, human remains were located in a sea cave off the coast of Chile. Resting among the tool marked remains of mammoth, the location refutes more than one commonly accepted tenet of mainstream archaeology. New finds and better technology have helped to further better archaeology. (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)
The current best theory of the origins of modern man point to western Africa as the place where first animals that can be called Homo Sapiens appeared. The earliest fossil that has been classified as Sapiens was found in the valley of the Omo river in south-western Ethiopia and are dated at arou…nd 190,000 years old. (MORE)
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. At some point between 400,000 years ago and the second interglacialperiod in the Middle Pleistocene (around 250,000 years ago) thetrend in cranial expansion and the elaboration of stone tooltechnologies developed, providing evidence for a …transition fromhomo-erectus (meaning "upright man") to Homo sapiens (meaning "wiseman"); this origin/transition is speculated by human scientists aseither due to a uni-regional development that spread (which seemslikely, due to the general genetic homogeneity of Homo sapienssapiens) or multi-regional developments that merged.

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.
Africa is the original birthplace of Homo sapiens. It has been proved that the human race originated in Africa. A good short reference about the subject is "The Journey of Man" by Spencer Wells.
We use houses, tents, huts, shacks, caves, tower blocks, lean to, holes in the ground, vehicles, etc
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 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 Sapiens Sapiens also include modern day human beings as well as our ancient ancestors so its hard to say.
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.
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.
Binomial nomenclature is the way we formally identify animals. You may recall that all livig things are broken up by Kingdom, Phylum, Class, Order, Genus and Species. Binomial nomenclature directly referrs to the genus and species of the animal. A Bengal tiger is Panthera Tigris and a human being… is homo sapien (MORE)
Quite a lot, really. H. sapiens has only been around for less than 100,000 years, but the world has been here for billions of years.
You have it. The term homo sapiens is latin and means a wise man. Homo=man. Sapiens= wise, judicious, thinking.
Mostly as a scavenger (eating the dead meat for other animal kills). Homo sapiens could throw rocks at small prey, they could cooperate and stampede herds off of cliffs.
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.
spread throughout the world into every environment no matter how friendly or unfriendly it was. no other animal can do that.
Fortunately, homo sapiens have not died out. That is because we ourselves are homo sapiens ("homo sapien" refers to the genus and species of humans-genus and species are simply terms used in "Taxonomy", that is, the classification of living things.)
Homo Sapiens discovered plenty. I'll try to help c: 1.) They discovered agriculture (farming). Because of Agriculture they were no longer nomads (People who moved around a lot and didn't stay in one place.) Now that they were no longer nomads they had more time to develop things such as complex la…nguage. (The way we communicate by speaking words in our generation) and they also developed writing. Hope it helped you, :D (MORE)

No. Humans, Chimpanzees and gorillas are all primates....but homosapiens were the first modern human species.
They earliest painted in caves in France...horses/weird big bison animal thingys on the walls. The sculptures ranged from large clay bisons to human and animal forms carved into bone. Some of the "sketches" were of tribe members so we can even tell what the people looked like. The link has numerous …examples. However the group includes all people alive today, not just the archaic varieties. So part of the total package of H. Sapiens Sapiens art would include all art that you see today. (MORE)
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)
Homo sapiens means a human being, so a gay homo sapiens isa gay person .
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.
No. Homo sapiens is the taxonomical name for human beings. Starfish belong to the Asteroidea class.
A Homo sapien is a human and a human is the only species in the human life.
They first appeared when god created Adam and Eve and sent them down to the world....which was mabey millions of years ago.
No, there are types of influenza viruses that many different groups of mammals can get infected by, as well as birds (such as the avian/bird flu).
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
becaue only one of the two competing could urvive and we couldnt have 2 kind of men on the planet
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.
