Mike Whiteside and Ben Robinson are a creative team made up of two human men (taxonomically, Homo sapiens), the only extant members of the subtribe Hominina. They use tools much more efficiently than any other animal yet discovered by science and tend to walk on two legs. They are differentiable from their nearest cousins, chimpanzees, by their large heads and noses.
