Did homo sapiens evolve from neanderthals?
No, although both evolved from the common ancestor Homo Heidelbergenis. Homo Sapiens did however interbreed with Neanderthal, consequentially, Caucasian and some Asian races of Homo Sapiens today have 2% Neanderthal DNA, making us a somewhat 'hybrid' species.

Because the time and place where neanderthals existed it was very very cold. So they mostly ate nuts. But they did hunt wild animals when they had to.
There is some controversy over whether Neanderthals fit within theHomo Sapiens label. Some paleoanthropologists label them as HomoSapiens Neanderthalensis but others feel th…at they aresufficiently different from anatomically modern humans to be giventhe label Homo Neanderthalensis . Only around 4% of the HomoSapiens Sapiens (modern human, and yes we technically have twosapiens after the homo label) genome can be identified asNeanderthal.
Homo sapiens are modern humans. Neanderthals are a separate species of human that went extinct 27,000 years ago.
Clothes made from animal skins.
They were stone age hunter/gatherers, who lived in caves and rock shelters. They hunted large animals, such as bison, horse, mammoth, etc.
130,000 years ago until 27,000 years ago.
Neanderthals were shorter and stockier. Weak chin, prominent brow ridge. probably red hair.
Physically, Neanderthals had a larger body mass, bigger muscles, an expanded ribcage that housed bigger lungs, a weak chin and a prominent brow ridge.
The Neanderthals were far more robust in structure than the Homo sapiens. They also had amazing projection in their nasal cavity, thought to have provided more surface area fo…r mucus to warm the cold frigid air before entering their bodies. Homo Sapiens, however, have far smaller nasal cavities, as we do not live in such a cold environment. Homo Sapiens also have smaller and rounder brains than the Neanderthals, and steeper foreheads as a result.
No. They were shorter and stockier.
Very similar. Sapiens Sapiens are modern humans.
no you losers
