The human family is defined as Hominids. Hominids are characterized by several features, such as their manner of movement (locomotion). We have an upright position (which is known as bipedal). A large reorganized brain is another feature, along with a diminished face and teeth. Use and construction of tools are notable characteristics of Hominids. (Wicander and Monroe 1993)

The evolutionary design of man has always intrigued Anthropologists. Climatic changes may have been responsible for the development of the characteristics of Hominids. These climatic changes began 24 million years ago. (Wicander and Monroe 1993)
