Human beings are social animals that usually live together in all stages of development. Their social behaviour is however different from most other animals. They like to interact with each other, and they need other people for their daily survival, but still, they can be independent. A human being can live alone, but just like other mammals, they need to be cared for during their childhood stage.
The compulsory dependence of a human being is because of some facts, which includes: our way of life, mating structure, emotional feelings, children-parent relationship, and some other factors.
Our way of life: animals that live in the wild, and most domestic animals can be solitary, except when mating because, unlike human beings, they do not make use of money, they do not need to work to make a living, they do not need to impress others, and express themselves to others, they do not require approval to do many things, they do not live in civilised environments, they do not need friends, they do not go into relationships, and so on.
Our mating structure: most of the domestic and wild animals do not take a mating partner for life, unlike human beings which usually take a mating partner for life. Animals do not get involved in sexual relationships.
Emotional feelings: most of the wild and domestic animals do not get involved in conversation, quarrelling, argument, grouped wars or conflicts. Animals do not have to love others, hate others, be jealous of others, be envious of others, and so on. But if they should live like human beings which get involved in this acts, no matter how solitary an animal could be, they would be dependent on each other, just like human beings.
Due to the highly advanced nervous system human beings possess, they undergo many emotional feelings, which would lead to compulsory interaction. Some of these feelings like love, hate, jealousy, envy, want for wealth, popularity, power, domination, and so on, require other people to be fulfilled.
In conclusion, what I am trying to say is that, though we are social beings, our social nature is because of the fact that we are the apex animal in the world, which is why our way of life is highly developed and civilised, our mating structure calls for life partnership (except when divorce or death takes place), our emotional feelings is highly dependent on people around us, and our children-parent relationship, is one in which a child acknowledges his/her parent or guardian for life. If not because of this fact, we might have been as solitary as many other animals.
Human beings have a very large range of weights. A human being’s weight could depend on some factors like the type of food taken, quality of food taken, quantity of food taken, environmental background, financial status of parents or guardians or the person in question, and some other factors. A human being passes through several stages of development which includes infant stage, childhood stage, teenage stage, adult stage, in which his/her weight should vary according to the stage the person is in. The weights of human beings also have a different range depending on the country or region in question. This might be because of different standards of living, weather and climate, and some other factors. They are websites which have given weight ranges for people, or given a general formula for calculating the weight range of every stage in the human development cycle; you can visit these websites by inputting “human beings weight” in the search tab of any browser. But on average, adult human beings weigh 62 kg (136.69 pounds). I guess that everyone who will read this article, or is reading this article is a human being that should know at least the range of weights he/she will fall into.
This factor also varies a lot in human beings. Unlike most other animals which every healthy member would have a general speed range, human beings do not have a general speed range. But on average, a 16 year old and above healthy person should reach a speed of 24.5 kilometres per hour (15.22 miles per hour) while performing a sprint run. One of the fastest, if not the fastest record was 44.72 kilometres per hour (27.79 miles per hour), which was reached by Usain Bolt.
The average lifespan of human beings worldwide is about 75 years. But a human being could live both way above and way below that. It is thought that the average life expectancy of a human being just like other animals would increase as they pass infant and childhood stages, because the mortality rate is highest at infant and childhood stages. The average lifespan is given on the basis that the human being would overcome all challenges that could kill him/her in his/her other stages of development. The lifespan of a person could be reduced by infant mortality, epidemics, diseases, accidents, wars or other kinds of conflicts, and so on.
Human beings are found in every continent except Antarctica (Antarctica is the only continent in the world with no real human residents). They live in habitats like rainforests, wetlands, savannas just like other animals. The only difference between a human being’s habitat and wild animals’ or some domestic animals’ habitat is the kind of housing. Most human beings live in a highly built artificial house, while most animals live in naturally built shelters.
Human beings are apex predators in their habitat. We are omnivores that are on top of our food chain. We do possess predators like tigers, lions, jaguars, the beast of gévaudan, and so on, but we do not live in the same environments as these animals. One fact to note is that no matter how huge and strong an animal is, they will still have a little amount of fear for a human being.
Human beings are omnivores (which means we feed on both plants and animals). We feed on plants like fruits (oranges, pawpaw, apples, mangoes, cashews, carrots, bananas, pineapples, and so on), vegetables (spinach, amaranthus, okro, bitter leaves, water leaves, and so on), beverages (cocoa, coffee, tea, and so on), cereals (wheat, millet, guinea corn, oats, and so on), pulses (soyabeans, groundnuts, Lima beans, pigeon pea, and so on), root and tuber crops (yam, potatoes, cocoyam, cassava, and so on), spices (pepper, ginger, curry leaves, and so on), oil plants (groundnut, oil palm, coconut, soyabeans, and so on. We feed on animals like crustaceans (crabs, and so on), gastropods (snails, and so on), Pisces (tilapia fish, and so on), Aves (pigeons, domestic fowls, and so on), mammals (goats, sheep, cattle, antelopes, rabbits, and so on).
Species: H. sapiens.
