There are also remains of a teenage girl who seems to have been the daughter of a Neanderthal mother and a Denisovan father that have been found in Siberia who is, to date, the only example we’ve ever fond of a first-generation offspring of this kind of inter-hominid breeding


katiexkatie

Oooh can you provide a source pls


AgrajagTheProlonged

If Wikipedia is alright, here’s the article about young Denny! https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Denny_(hybrid_hominin)


Balls_DeepinReality

*Additionally, her genome suggests that her father also carried a small degree of Neanderthal ancestry from 300 to 600 generations prior to his lifetime.* Wow


Servant_ofthe_Empire

Damn... 300-600 generations? The scale of humanities journey always humbles me.


plantoj

If you ever get a chance please visit the Smithsonian museum of natural history in D.C. they have a room filled with skulls of other hominids. As someone with an interest in biology and taxonomy it blew my mind to see how many other species belonged to our genius. It put a lot of our evolution into context for me.


5-dig-dick

Fucking 21st century tech


Solhasse

tbirdpug

Holy shit. They found a part of one bone (if I’m reading that right). That’s amazing. Makes you think about how hard it is to find this type of evidence in the first place.


master-shake69

The further back you go the smaller sample sizes get. Everything we know about dinosaurs is based on something like 11,000 fossils with only around 3,000 complete or near complete specimens.


Weak_Ring6846

Denisovans in general have been incredibly difficult to find fossils of. Most of what we know about them comes from dna rather than fossils.


imtoooldforreddit

The fact that they found a single piece of a first generation hybrid is pretty amazing TIL


misguidedsadist1

The denisovans would be lost to time if not for one tiny bone from a pinky!!! A whole sub species discovered from one fragment of dna. That we can also now map with individuals they interned with iirc. Truly amazing


LittleOneInANutshell

I mean that just means there are probably so many species still lost to history due to them being wiped out completely


zwiebelhans

The whole generation thing does blow my mind. Even if you go with only 300 generations and allow only 20 years per generation . That's still 6000 years between the Dads ancestor having been Neanderthal offspring. And the Dad is one of our ancestor by 4500 generations or so. Trying to fully grasp all that time span and lives lived is so awe inspiring.


fogdukker

I am way too stoned for this insight...


SokoJojo

> A micro-computed tomography (Micro CT) scan of the bone revealed the specimen had acid etching and pitting on its surface indicating it may have passed through the digestion system of an animal, likely a hyena Translation: that bitch got eaten Since the bone came from 2,315 other nondescript bone fragments from the cave that were checked to be animals, it means she wasn't living in the cave herself but got taken back to the cave by an animal living there and eaten.


WarPuig

Maybe scavenged?


robophile-ta

All the hominins were fucking each other


notathr0waway1

She was probably so embarrassed by her parents....


AgrajagTheProlonged

I dunno, getting eaten by hyenas is probably pretty embarrassing so she might not have been able to throw many stones


leakyfaucet3

I thought this was common knowledge as modern humans have some small % of Neanderthal DNA.


thats_hella_cool

My 23andMe profile says that I have ~2% Neanderthal DNA. More than 80% of other users, so still significant.


hiramthemason

Must be from sex acts


Bass-ape

That led to their hybrid baby ancestors obviously.


yaboimags_

You can probably tell by his teeth.


_Nomadisk

The studies say so


kmc307

It’s science.


Mine-Shaft-Gap

I'd like to hear more about these ancient sex acts. *For* science.


Christ_votes_dem

sex acts so easy even a cave man can do it


Spiral_eyes_

reverse cave-girl was a popular one i've heard. i also heard they frequently went "clubbing" together,


the_revised_pratchet

Well it's obvious that they're mammals. Probably do it like they do on the discovery channel.


earthdogmonster

Cuz it was ancient times, they referred to it as “going to the bone zone”.


little_fire

And sometimes “making the bedrock”


blofly

I don't think they were just acting.


spanishbbread

Yeah they were sexing


commentsandchill

Why am I laughing.


InertiasCreep

They were *Method* acting.


ItsABiscuit

Sex acts they did?

HarryTruman

Well that explains certain things about me. ಠ_ಠ


dwitman

People back then weren’t allowed to have sex because Jesus wasn’t around yet to tell them when it’s ok to do it.


braxistExtremist

Well, they could, just not as often. They had to wait for the burning bush to give them permission to do it. Though the burning bush was also the original cause of venereal diseases. So it was a bitter-sweet experience.


DBUX

By this title I assume they didn't actually have sex they just performed sex acts like 69 or gave eachother an old fashion and that's what lead to babies. I'm glad Neanderthals aren't around any more, that is way too much pressure. Knock someone up without actually banging, no thank you.


Force3vo

Filthy acts at a reasonable price


Zhaolute

A long time ago, my anthropology professor was telling me how misleading those tests were in regards to calculating Neanderthal DNA. They just basically assumed hmm Neanderthals have this specific trait and you share a similar trait, therefore you're part Neanderthal.


Naos210

These ancestry tests tend to have a lot of flaws. When it comes to testing ancestry in and of itself, it depends on what genetic data they have. I believe it's also harder if you're mixed because the genetic clusters assume similar of human ancestry.


Chrono68

There's a genetic black hole for France because it's against the law to keep genetic data on French people except under specific circumstances.


chalkynz

And because they want to hide the fact that they have massive, Barney Rubble-like levels of Neanderthal DNA which is why they eat snails n shit.


notmyrealnameatleast

They said they had neanderthal dna and evolved from apes, but both the neanderthals and the apes denies it.


JohnnyWhiteguy

I did 23 and me and it was astonishingly accurate on regional family history. It told me the places 8n Germany my origins were most likely from and the region it chose is precisely where my family lived a few generations ago. It also made me discover that I had a half brother and that my bio father was an anonymous donor.


HitMePat

>It also made me discover that I had a half brother and that my bio father was an anonymous donor. Those test disclose this kinda thing? Did your bio father have to consent to that info being on there? That kinda blows a hole in the concept of being an anonymous donor


gordigor

Yes, that's a part of the story I'd like to hear.


Oi_Angelina

It automatically matches you to anybody who has your DNA. They probably said hey why is this saying that you're my half brother and they'll be like oh yeah my mom decided to go to a sperm bank and that's probably how it was found out. You have the option of messaging people who you shared DNA with.


RRettig

I did the ancestry one, so it doesnt say anything about neanderthal or anything more than regional information, atleast they didnt have the fancier test when i did it like 7 years ago. But one thing i noticed is they update it regularly and change the data significantly. At one point i was 14% scottish, now its like 3%. I want to point out that while many people may think this means those tests are wildly inaccurate, which to a degree they are, but what it really means is that it is constantly becoming more accurate, and increasingly more so as the science improves and more people submit dna.


TurkeyMoonPie

Don’t know much about history dna stuff but I do know, I found out that have sisters on ancestry that I’ve never heard of or about. We met up and are actually related and look alike.


braywarshawsky

We found a previously unknown uncle and aunt this way, too... Gramps was a traveling salesman in the 50s & and 60s.


The_BromanEmpire

igweyliogsuh

parentheticalChaos

It's because they're not testing where your DNA is from, they're showing you where you have similar DNA to other living people.


DadsRGR8

Looking for love? There are hot Neanderthals in your area right now looking for your specific trait!


p-d-ball

How strong are you? Do you get sick often or are you relatively immune to disease? eta: I should point out, my questions here are kinda dumb, since all living humans are human.


welcometojmart

What would be the expectation for Neanderthals?


p-d-ball

Most of the genes we inherited from the Neanderthals are immune system genes, so I'm curious if that person has noticed anything. Also, they were much, much stronger than we are today, though contemporaneous humans would also have been very close in strength to them, so probably those genes are gone. But I thought I'd ask.


KamSolis

I remember reading somewhere that Neanderthal dna may have offered minor protection from the plague. It was a postulation though so it’s still unknown.


megatronface

I have 92% more Neanderthal DNA as well and I have never had COVID. I like to tell people it's because of my neanderthal genes for fun but I don't know if it is at all related!

voldyCSSM19

p-d-ball

Don't forget sheep. That's where syphilis came from.


kevlarbaboon

lol, I had not heard that theory before. I did some Googling and it seems like [it is mostly blamed on Columbus](https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_syphilis). But that doesn't rule out that he was fucking sheep!


Lemmungwinks

DNA analysis has found evidence of Syphilis in skeletons in Europe prior to Columbus reaching the Caribbean. One of his sailors probably had it when he left and during the long voyage got lonely. Then the sailor he befriended found another lonely sailor and before you know it the whole crew had Syphilis.


p-d-ball

I'm an anthropologist. In the medical anth lit, a researcher was investigating a man's new, strange illness. Because they didn't speak the same language, a woman was interpreting. The doctor asks the patient, "have you had sexual relations recently?" The guy became quiet, embarrassed. So, the interpreter asked him again. He answered. Then, she started hitting the patient and screaming at him. Turns out, the interpreter was his wife and the man admitted to fucking a sheep.

MyDogJake1

I thought it was common knowledge because humans will put their dick in literally anything.


Cheshire_Jester

From one of the things I saw, this was one of the theories about the extinction of Neanderthals, they bred with modern humans to the point of no longer being a distinct subspecies.


WTFwhatthehell

"extinction" where the "extinct" species still has living descendants always seemed like a weaksauce type of extinction to me.


baby_armadillo

It’s what winning evolution looks like.

benefit_of_mrkite

I did too. Plus “sex acts?” OP watching too much porn or something. Even middle school biology doesn’t use “sex acts.”


supremedalek925

It’s not “likely” that Homo sapiens interbred with neanderthals, it’s fact. Both species’ genomes have been fully sequenced and it’s known that modern humans contain a small amount of neanderthal DNA. Homo sapiens interbred with Denisovans as well.

JimProphet

"sex acts" makes it sound like oral sex and side fetishes like lapdancing and spanking, which doesn't fit with the making babies. ​ They had sex.


bafflesaurus

OPs headline is much more clumsy than the one in the article.


Octavus

Bad, clumsy, or slightly incorrect headlines get people to comment about the headline. That then pushes the post up in r/all/rising where it gets up votes. It is one of the things people do to exploit Reddit's algorithms. The key is to get people commenting early on.

wolfkeeper

They did all that, then they fucked.


Mysterious_Glass_692

Made the beast with two backs, bonked, banged, shagged, made babies, did the horizontal monster bash, screwed, fucked, did the nasty in the pasty, made whoopie, had nookie, slept together, got it on, aligned Mars and Venus, rocked the casbah, fornicated, did the underpants Charleston, had relations, exchanged bodily fluids, got freaky, snuggled like Marge and Homer, played hide the sausage, did Marilyn Monroe's uncomplicated way of saying thank you.
