List down five adaptations that our species may develop in order to continue surviving on earth.

We are one of the few species that have colonized every continent, and none have had as much influence on their environment as we have.

Unlike the ancient belief that it was just our intelligence that enabled us to overcome our lack of claws and fangs and control our environment, we’ve used an interesting mix of talents and abilities to achieve where we are today. And here five adaptations that our species may develop in order to continue surviving on earth.

Our predecessors possessed something that our present domesticated grain and processed food-eating selves do not: magnificent teeth.

2.Hearing has been fine-tuned for speech.

We also have stronger hearing than our ape cousins, and we can hear a larger spectrum of sounds, particularly between 1.0 and 6.0 kHz, which is where most human speech happens.

Our predecessors’ hearing started to widen some 2 million years ago, laying the groundwork for intricate social interactions — and the villages, cities, states, and nations that came with them.

Better listening and communication skills were critical in early human development. According to one research, the ability to convey ideas makes problem resolution significantly simpler and more efficient.

3. Standing up straight.

Another significant evolutionary benefit was our capacity to stand upright — but creaky knees and back ache were undoubtedly a cost.Standing on two legs protected more of our hairless skin out of the harsh savanna heat while also freeing up our hands to hold tools and toss weapons.

Although other primates can grasp the trajectory of thrown items and hence avoid, no animal can aim and throw with the strength and accuracy of a human.

4.  Perspiring.

Our capacity to control body temperature aided our incredible endurance. Humans are quite resilient. Many animals sweat, but few utilize it to cool themselves evaporatively, as humans (and horses) do. When we run, we may also take in more oxygen and dissipate heat by breathing through our lips.

Other animals expel heat through panting, which is hard to accomplish when running at full speed. This allowed hunters to pursue animals at their slowest galloping pace until they were hot.

5. Endurance running.

Although recreational jogging might seem like a hassle, our species is equipped for amazing endurance. Many terrestrial creatures are quicker over short distances, but no one can walk at a leisurely, relaxed pace for as long as humans.

This enabled primitive people to thrive at hunting. We’d jog after enormous prey in the noon heat until they died of weariness.

Our already outstanding endurance further increased as our weaponry improved and we learned to carry water in containers, preparing humanity to expand throughout the planet.
