Sir/Maam in human history what is homo habilis,homo erectus,homo neanderthalensis,homo sapiens

Dear Student,

​​​​​​Homo habilis, Homo erectus, Homo neanderthals were the ancestors of modern man (Homo sapiens).
There were several species that evolved gradually in order from primates in Africa to become Homo sapiens (Humans). All these species are considered as human ancestors. Human evolution is a gradual process that took place slowly in time. 

The different stages of human evolution from ancestral primates to modern human beings are as follows:
  • Dryopithecus and Ramapithecus 
  • Man like primates
  •  Australopithecus(Homo habilis )
  • Homo erectus 
  • Homo neanderthalensis 
  •  Homo sapiens 
 Dryopithecus and Ramapithecus  were two primates that lived around 15 mya and are considered ancestors of human. They were hairy and walked like gorillas and Chimpanzees.Then from them evolved man like primates  around 3-4 mya,  that were not so tall but walked straight like man. Australopithecus also called Homo habilis  evolved around 2 mya. They used some stone weapons and ate fruits. They were human like.Then from them, evolved Homo erectus  and then Homo neanderthalensis. Homo sapiens  evolved from Homo neanderthalensis around 75,000 -10,000 mya.
