The Human Animal - The Hunting Ape

Believe it or not, our eating habits express a lot about our identity as a species, and reveal our unique evolutionary history. Join zoologist Desmond Morris in this second part of The Human Animal documentary series as he traces back our ancestry from arboreal gatherers to bipedal hunters. Learn how so many of the habits we take for granted as simply aesthetic and non-functional, even those seemingly separate from feeding, reveal many of the instincts that our ancestors acquired long ago due to powerful evolutionary selection pressures, and the implications of many of those adaptations in our modern world.



Does anyone know the current status of the aquatic ape hypothesis? I have always found it compelling -if only because it's so interesting, but I'm not sure what the actual evidence has to say about it...
