    While learning ancient history, I discovered that humans evolved from a primate species called Cro-Magnon and their is a simmilar species called Neanderthals which were simmilar to the Cro-Magnons except that they could not adapt to climates well and thus they became extinct and Cro-Magnons tooks over. It got me thinking are the Proto-Humans in Beast Wars Neanderthals or Cro-Magnons?


    In Case you don't know what a Cro-Magnon or a Neanderthal is here's a link to Wikipedia to read up on it.

    Cro-Magnon:
    Cro-Magnon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Neanderthal:
    Neanderthal - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I'm Curious to know if the ProtoHumans we saw in Beast Wars evolved into humans or died out?

    Neither. They are australopithecus.

    They must have evolved into humans or else there wouldn't have been such significance placed on their safety by the Maximals or their eradication by Megatron. If they were simply to die out then history would have overlooked them in the context of the Beast Wars.

    Neanderthals and Cro-Magnons weren't that hairy - they were more human-like, without all the hair.

    The protomonkeys, as I lovingly refer to them, were most likely based off of Australopethicus. They evolved around circa 4-3 million years ago, the same time the Autobots and Decepticons crashed on Earth in the Ark and the Nemesis. Australopethicus are the direct ancestor of modern humans, more or less. They evolved, and dispersed worldwide from Africa into Asia and the Americas.

    Then there's the problem - the Maximals set up base in Mt. St Hilary, said to be in the Pacific Northwest. Even then, the Protomonkeys are flying distance away from the Maximals, even if the Maximals really came from the Axalon in Africa to the Ark.

    But I'm saying they're Australopethicus, or at least their models were inspired by Australopethicus, since things seem to point towards them for the most part.

    You're putting wwwwway too much thought into this... :lol . With all the deaths in BW, What Larry DiTillio & Bob Forward should have done was have a Predacon kill one of the cavekids. Yeah, I'm sure that would have gone down well with Hasbro... :lol

    Very special hominid sub-species called the "Una", the "Jak", and at least one larger adult, which I like to call "Homer".
