Man stands upright most of the time, and walks almost only on its hindlimbs, leaving the forelimbs free to handle and work with the hands. This handling of things is helped by the gainstanding thumb, which most other milchwights do not have.
Man is an ape. It is the one breed of Apes that walks upright. It was once more like the other apes, but through hundreds of thousands of years of growthbreeding, has become much more wise. It is often though of as uprightape, wiseape, or nakedape.
