NeanderthalThe Neanderthal is an old world, modern primate that is now extinct. It is thought that the Neanderthal roamed the lands of Asia and Europe for around 100,000 years.
The Neanderthal cranial capacity was much bigger than modern humans, judging by the size skulls found from the Neanderthal era. This indicates that the Neanderthal had a possible larger brain size. The Neanderthal is known to be smaller than modern humans and only got to around 40 years old at most.
