Our species, Homo sapiens, have only been around for about as long as a blink of an eye in terms of Earth’s history. It’s believed that the Earth formed over 4.6 billion years ago, and the first humans evolved about 200,000 years ago in Africa.

Hello everyone! We've been experimenting with a bit of a podcast for our Biographics channel (a few people were asking for audio versions so they can get Biographics while doing other things)! Fair warning: none of these are new biographies, but rather me having a bit more of a free form chat around the script. I'd love to know what you think, if these are useful, wanted etc :). Thanks, Simon.

TopTenz I don’t mean to be rude, but most animals are venomous, not poisonous.
If an animal releases toxins when it bites you, like snakes (vipers, cobras, western hog noses). Poison is typically ingested, like with some frogs and mushrooms, or even the leaves of potato plants.
There’s a saying that goes something like this: if it bites you and you die, it’s venomous. If you bite it and you die, it’s poisonous.
You keep acting like human ancestors were some weak white guy on youtube speaking in front a camera lol. They were as strong if not stronger than a guerrilla back then and could hold there own with a bite force much stronger than a human has today.
Because of “weather changes” their habit changed 🤔 just my personal opinion but habitats around the world have always changed even before mankind started deforestation and other harmful for wildlife endeavors. I think things such as the ice caps are simply shifting to new points as some countries report record high temperatures and others are starting to see temperatures drop.
do to popular belief humans did not come from Africa they most likely came from Asia and Siberia there has been evidence that there was tread between two separate groups that out dated the women found in Africa by at least 4000 years but it has been removed by the thought police...the remains were found in 1991, i remember in less than 24 hours it was wipe for the media and general public... why reasons... reason i know but will not share on this platform
You know ,I've been listing to theories on how these giant animals went extinct, I think they ate themselves out of food and there off spring were eaten ,either by others or by them selves and finally starved , they just eat and were eaten so fast that they finally could not reach maturity to reproduction, just my hypothesis
They died out but I'd sooner believe a distant primate relative may be hidden from society than a solitary creature with a looooong life span. Ps. You would make a fantastic news presenter. Id clock in at 6 every evening to hear your posh voice.
You forgot to mention the O'Donnell Rosie. One of the world's most vicious land creatures that resembled a cross between a sloss an elephant and the hippopotamus. It had a nasty habit of singling out men of that age and trying to devour them. She was only defeated when the men and women grew tired of her same old too and just simply Ignore her
Simon, your knowledge about the first modern humans occurring about 200k years ago is very "dated"! (pun intended) There is more and more evidence being discovered that shows modern humans have been around for many hundreds of thousands of years. Civilizations rise and fall cyclically, over many hundreds of thousands or even millions of years. Archeological findings that don't fit the text books will get you fired, lose your tenureship, earn ridicule and ostracism. Ther old guard doesn't want to be proven wrong, and their text books thrown away. So archeology has become more of a religion than a science, and many provable facts are being ignored. Check out Graham Hancock's excellent, scholarly work on this subject.
Check Komodo fact. Just like all things with a mouth there’s varying levels of bacteria. The real effect of a Komodo bite is the anti-clotting effect that causes bleeding and no wound closure thus allowing steady blood loss infection to set in when the animal lays in bacteria infested pools of water for relief weakening it to the point of helplessness. Then the Komodos converge for the buffet.
3:15 wait did he just say because of weather changes this animal died out how could it be weather changes when there wasn't any cars or carbon issues back then are they saying global warming could happen on its own without the interference from man
