This section shall provide a distinct presentation on what the whole paper is about
Introducing the 1st Specie
This section specifically provides of distinct presentation on the details about the first specie that has been discovered in Kenya
Introducing the 2nd Specie
This section provides a specific description of the second specie that has been discovered and how it could have a relative connection to all the environmental elements they relatively exist with.
Definition of social culture among primates
This section shows how the overall culture of primates relates to those that have been recently discovered in Kenya as noted in the details.
Details of Findings:
Male: 135 kg
Female: 90 kg
Teeth: Mandibles with high cups, shearing crests and thin enamel
Suspected food source: Primary predator (status in the food chain)
wildebeest and zebra
Physical data: Male and female both 60 kg
Teeth: Large molars with rounded cusps and think enamel
Primates have long been understood to have a distinct connection with other animals of its kind; perhaps one of the reasons why their behavior has been most often than not closely related to how humans interact in social groups. However, between different emerging species, it could be analyzed how competition becomes a vital part of the connection they share between each other. This is the reason why it was easier to preserve species of different kinds of primates even within the same locations of habitat. Cross-breeding was not that common among primates due to being highly territorial in nature. Male primates often direct their groups specifically having a distinct distance from other types of other primates. This is why preserving intact social groups among monkeys have been a distinct characteristic of the animal, giving them a greater chance of propagating and preserving their own groups surviving within a specific habitat. When instances of environmental imbalance occurs, primates often move as groups, hence bringing their whole clan and community along with them as they follow their leaders find viable locations to become their new home.
In relation to the findings noted above, two specific species of primates have been found to have coexisted separately in particular locations explored in Kenya. The way they are separated from each other specifically notes how these groups of primates were able to protect themselves from cross breeding with each other. The first specie, Praeanthropus dimorphicus, is notably a predator which could be assumed to have fed on animals surrounding its area. Based on the fossils found on top of the fossils of this specie, these primates could be assumed to have fed on wildebeests and zebras. Huge as relating to their size, the male weighing approximately 135 kg and the females at an approximation of 90 kg, these primates may have had the chance of taking advantage of their size in relation to how they cornered their prey and how they rummage through the meat as part of their social gatherings. Finding thin enamel and shearing crests on the mandibles found alongside the skulls and the bones of the specie, it is safe to say that these creatures survived from hunting animals.
On the part of the other species that was found on another location in Kenya, the relative weight of men and women averaged to at least 60 kg. This weight denotes the supposed incapacity of this group of primates to defend themselves from larger predators in their location. The Praeanthropus monomorphicus, is expected to have fed on both smaller animals and vegetation. Due to their supposedly small size, these species may not have been able to withstand predation from other larger animals like lions or tigers which both have extensive population development in Kenya. Considerably, with such status considered into account, it is expected that mating, although it was a custom for most primate groups, was not able to preserve the population of this particular specie.
Overall, it could be realized through this finding that the primates found to have existed within two specific locations in Kenya may have never even cross their paths. Considering the intensity of the differences they have in terms of physical attributes, these primates could be noted of having been able to protect their group well. The intactness of their communities defines how and why they are often related to the political and territorial behaviors of humans. The basic definition of how primate societies operate specifically identify well with the facts surrounding the course of development that these primates could be categorized under especially when it comes to protecting their own specie from that of the other primate societies.
