Hominin Features

Need help with my Writing question – I’m studying for my class.

One of the main characteristics that defines the hominin tribe are their bipedal tendencies. However, as you have noted in reading for this week’s assigments, not all hominins had the same bipedal capabilities. Early hominins can be defined as being at various stages of transitioning into bipedalism while later forms are obligate bipeds.

For this discussion board I would like you to share any bit of information that you thought was interesting about any of the non-homo hominins. Feel free to share your thoughts in an open ended but informed way!
