When did Homo sapiens sapiens live?

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 sapiens 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

Where did homo sapiens sapiens live?

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.

Homo sapien sapiens or Homo sapiens sapiens?

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 .

With their chopping tools they hackedbranches from young trees, probably trimming off the twigs, and then they poked the branches into the ground in rough circle, holding them in place by pilingrocks against them. The tops of the branches were probably bent andtwisted together so that the finished hut was more or less teepeeshaped. Yhe remains of such a hut has been found - the holes madeby branches that were pushed into the ground, the rocks that wereonce piled against these branches, and a circle of stones in thecenter where a fire was probably kept burning. Despite thembuilding these crude huts, they did not live together in villages,they were nomandic, and traveled around a lot. They would buildthese wherever the good feeding grounds / food sources took them.

What did homo habilis use for shelter?

Well, I've don't some research, so I have found that the homo habilis early humans were usually on the move to find food, so they did not stay in one place for very long. But, when they did need to make or find shelter, they used cliffs, hills, and fallen trees. But you might be wondering, "couldn't they have used caves for shelter?" Well, they didn't use caves because there were animals in there, possibly dangerous, like saber toothed cats. Well, I hope this information helped you with your research! :)

Were Homo sapiens the first creatures on earth to use tools?

Homo sapiens were not the first creatures on earth to use tools. Earlier species of Homo, such as Neanderthals used tools several hundred thousand years before our species first entered the scene. There were other tool using hominid species that preceded them.. Many animals use basic tools, and the fact that chimps use tools means it's very likely that our last shared ancestor used them too around 7 million years ago. Tool use may also have been seen before then in other animals.

What is homo erectus use for there shelter?

Sometimes used caves as shelters, they often built shelters out of tree branches. With their chopping tools they hacked branches from young trees, probably trimming off the twigs, and then they poked the branches into the ground in rough circle, holding them in place by piling rocks against them. The tops of the branches were probably bent and twisted together so that the finished hut was more or less tent shaped. The remains of such a hut has been found holes made by branches that were pushed into the ground, rocks that were once piled against these branches, and a circle of stones in the center where a fire was kept burning. but although these people could build crude huts, they did not live together in villages. .

What weapons did homo sapiens sapiens use?

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.

Why is Homo in Homo sapiens capitalized?

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 within 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 .

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 mouth 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.
