Homo erectus‘ ability to make complex tools was possible because of the strength and dexterity in its hands, which it owes to a certain hand-bone projection called a “styloid process” that was previously thought to only exist in Neanderthals and modern humans, according to a 2013 PNAS study.
All this is further explained here. Likewise, people ask, what skills did the Homo erectus have?
Skills: They were able to walk and run long distances. They could control fire and cook food. They created more tools & weapons for butchering and hunting, such as stone axes and knives.
One may also ask, what was the Homo erectus habitat? This Homo erectus youth lived in a hot, dry part of East Africa near an ancient marsh. His teeth indicate that he grew up quickly, at a rate similar to that of a living great ape. His is one of the most complete early human skeletons ever found.
Thereof, what do we know about Homo erectus?
Homo Erectus Tools. Homo erectus was the first to use fire and sophisticated tools. Unlike earlier hominins that developed crude choppers and flakes, Homo erectus produced sophisticated stone axes and used sharp stone cleavers and finger-size scrapers used slice off chewable sizes of meat.
