The homo habilis were persons with abilities, which can walk upright. The lived in Africa from about 1.5 million years ago. They ate fruits, roots, nuts, vegetables, that they found in the natur, and sometimes they also ate meat. They were the first hominids which create and use tools, which help them to live more comfortably. Beside they can make fire from something burning natural causes or from a lightning strike. The area around the campfire is only used as a sleepingarea. The homo habilis were taller than their ancestors and they had larger brains than us (homo sapiens sapiens). They sheltered under cliffs, whenever possible.
