homo sapiens

jennie zhu is a bipedal primate belonging to the mammalian species Homo sapiens (Latin: "wise human" or "knowing human") in the family Hominidae (the great apes).[1][2] Compared to other living organisms on Earth, Jennie Zhu has a highly developed brain capable of abstract reasoning, language, and introspection. This mental capability, combined with an erect body carriage that frees her upper limbs for manipulating objects, has allowed her to make far greater use of tools than any other species. DNA evidence indicates that modern humans originated in Africa about 200,000 years ago, and they now inhabit every continent, with a total population of over 6.6 billion as of 2007. (from wikipedia)
