Description

Discover how humans lost their fur as they evolved from primates, and why we still have hair on our bodies.

--

We have lots in common with our closest primate relatives. But comparatively, humans seem a bit underdressed. Instead of thick fur covering our bodies, many of us mainly have hair on top of our heads and a few other places. So, how did we get so naked? And why do we have hair where we do? Nina G. Jablonski explores the evolution of human hair.

Lesson by Nina G. Jablonski, directed by Igor Coric, Artrake Studio.
