I have always found the topic of human ancestory fastinating. That there were more than one species around at the same time is really no suprise. It
makes perfect sense. Since animals in general adapt to their environment, I would think that the different species existing at the same time, if they
lived in the same areas, would have adapted to different ecological niches. Perhaps one species gathered roots and primarily fed on grains and
Maybe the other poached predator kills or actually hunted game. This would have possibly led to cooperation between them and maybe drew them to
interbreed. Perhaps this led to interacting with other groups for the trade of foodstuffs. After all that would support the survival of both species.
If this interplay did not happen, I would think that it would lead to competition for resources, and some type of possibly violent conflict. Maybe
that is why there is only one species left today.
Just some speculation Slayer, as you always make me think. Thanks....LG
