Did we do it?
Among paleontologists it’s apparently a matter for discussion. We, homo sapiens that is, lived together with that other species of man, Neanderthal, during a few ten thousands of years. The big question is: did we mate?
I think the answer is very short: of course we did. There’s plenty of evidence around that homo sapiens does it with capra aegagrus hircus, equus ferus caballus, equus africanus asinus, canis lupus familiaris, you name it, we do it. So why on earth would we not do it with Neanderthals?
Surely not because they were another species.
