Fact of the Day
Right before the Ice Age there were three human-like species. One of the three was upright and bipedal but looked more like an ape. The second group resembled what we would refer to as cavemen. They had more apelike skulls and much smaller brains than we have today. The third is us. The Ice Age left a measly 2000 humans and wiped out the other two adaptations completely.
The ancestors of those who stayed-put in Africa are called the Vasikela Kung tribe. From Africa some people migrated to Asia (70,000 years ago). And the some 45,000 years ago some went towards Europe. Humans trekked from Asia across the Bering Straight and into Alaska about 25,000 years ago.
Scientists have taken DNA from the farthest reaches of humanity. They found that everyone shares some of their DNA with the Vasikela Kung. Even today you can see distinct features from all around the globe in the faces of the tribe. Their skin color is such that it can become light or dark depending on the environment.
