Transcript of Homo Habilis

Homo Habilis Where Did They Live? What They Ate They ate fruit, berries, roots and meat. It is being debated whether they hunted for their meat or if they scavenged it from dead carcases. Marks on their teeth show that they ate mainly leaves, plants, and animal tissue. They didn’t usually eat tough foods like nuts, seeds, or dried meat. Tools They Used Homo habilis had basic tools. Stone tools are the ones which have been preserved for us. Archaeologists call this the Oldowan Industry and it was mostly basic chopper tools. They may also have used wooden and bone tools. We know very little about what these tools were used for though it is likely they were used in processing and gathering food. The Homo Habilis lived 1.5 to 2 million years ago in East and Southern Africa, particularly in Saharan Africa South of the Sahara Desert.

There were fossils found at Olduvai Gorge that tell us they lived in open grasslands near a lake. Olduvai Gorge Olduvai Gorge is a dig site that was discovered in 1960 by Louis Leakey and it remains one of the best sites for fining artifacts from the time of homo habilis. Leakey Interesting facts 1.6 million years ago the homo habilis didn't know how to use fire. And about 200 000 years later with the homo erectus the use of fire was discovered. Physical features Some characteristics of a homo habilis are the back teeth being larger than the front teeth, large brain, short with an average male height of 4.5 feet tall. Homo Habilis were not capable of speaking. Migration Patterns The homo habilis did not migrate out of Africa, because Northern africa and the Middle East had harsh, dry climates where food and water weren't as avaliable Thanks For Watching By Belen, Farya, and Kira

Homo, is a Latin word meaning ‘human’ The word habilis is based on a Latin word meaning ’ handy. and so they are known as ‘handy man’ because stone tools were found near their remains and the hypothesis is that this species developed the ability to change stone into tools.
