1 Hominids Jasira Ziglar Kenneth Cortavarria

2 General Info  Hominins are a group of 20 extinct species (and humans)  All of the remains of Hominids were found in Africa (Kenya, Tanzania, Ethiopia…)  Some “subgroups”: ~ Australopith group: Australopithecus anamensis, Australopithecus africanus ~“Homo” group: Homo erectus, Homo georgicus, Homo habilis, Homo Neaderthalenis

3 Ardipithecus ramidus

4 Chimpanzees

5 Neanderthal

6 Homo Sapiens

7 Interesting Info  Oldest living Hominid lived 6-7 million years ago (Sahelanthropus tchadensis)  Importance to humans: this group helps us to understand how humans came to be  There was once several species of Hominins living at the same time, but the lineage that led to Homo sapiens sapiens lived on, and the rest died
