— Antwerp Zoo (Belgium)

Here’s a quick bio on them:

Domain: Eukaryota
Kingdom: Animalia
Phylum: Chordata
Subphylum: Vertebrata
Class: Mammalia
Subclass: Theria
Order: Primates
Suborder: Anthropoidea
Family: Hominidae
Genus: Homo
Species: H. sapiens
Subspecies: H. s. sapiens
Trinomial name: Homo sapiens sapiens (Linnaeus, 1758)

Humans have a highly developed brain, capable of abstract reasoning, language, introspection and problem solving. This mental capability, combined with an erect body carriage that frees the forelimbs (arms) for manipulating objects, has allowed humans to make far greater use of tools than any other species.
The human population on Earth is greater than 6.7 billion, as of July, 2008.
As of 2008, humans are listed as a species of least concern for extinction by the International Union for Conservation of Nature.
Like most higher primates, humans are social by nature. Humans are particularly adept at utilizing systems of communication for self-expression, exchanging of ideas, and organization.
They create complex social structures, composed of many cooperating and competing groups, from families to nations. Social interactions between humans have established an extremely wide variety of traditions, rituals, ethics, values, social norms, and laws, which together form the basis of human society.
Humans are also notable for their desire to understand and influence the world around them, seeking to explain and manipulate natural phenomena through philosophy, art, science, mythology and religion. This natural curiosity has led to the development of advanced tools and skills; humans are the only species known to build fires, cook their food, clothe themselves; they also manipulate and develop numerous other technologies. Humans pass down their skills and knowledge to the next generations through education.
Diet: they are omnivorous, which means they eat just about anything that can be eaten, going from vegetables and fruit to meat …but also the more garbage type of food: fast-food etc..
Humans can generally survive for two to eight weeks without food, depending on the stored body fat.
Surviving without water is usually just for three to four days!
(so people please drink your two litres of water a day)
