Homo neanderthalensis, also known as Neanderthal man, is an evolutionary dead end cousin of modern humans. Neanderthal remains were discovered from the valley of Neanderthal in Germany. They were discovered just years after publication of the Origin of Species and offered support for Darwin's theories. Neanderthals lived in Europe and western Asia and for some time they co-existed with Homo sapiens who came from Africa. Nenderthals were robust and hunted animals with spears. Nenderthal artifacts have been found out but no Neanderthal cave drawings have been found. Neanderthal DNA analysis shows that they did not interbreed with modern humans. It is unknown why Neanderthals got extinct but competition with modern humans are thought to be one reason.
