I’ve selected the second claim provided (overhunting by humans led to extinction of the Ice Age animals). The research question that I’ve developed based on the claim chosen is did homo sapiens lead Gigantopithecus (giant ape) to end up being extinct if so how did homo sapiens lead them to being extinct. The other mammalian that I’ve chosen which can relate a lot to the Gigantopithecus is the Orangutan as I’m going to be comparing both together to show how evolution has occurred from the Gigantopthecus from the Ice Age era and the orangutan from the modern era as both are in the ape family, Evolution is the understanding that the world is not constant but changing an example of this is Italian Wall Lizards as these lizards were taken to an island left by themselves to see if there will be any changes that will occur. AS they shifted there their diet and ate more vegetation it causes their head size, giving them a stronger bite, they also developed cecal valves in their intestine which give the bacteria extra time to break down vegetation. Carks Darwin’s (1809-1882) theory was all species of organisms appear and develop through the natural selection as it increases the individua’s ability to compete, survive and reproduce. An example of this is a species of rat’s lives in a certain type of tree with the branches evenly separated as smaller rats cannot reach each branch to another and the larger rats end up braking the branches and falling of the branches, all rats use to be the right size to be able to reach each branch. The Gigantopithecus (giant ape) lived in China India and all other parts of southeast China as there is a total of three species of Gigantopithecus as the most famous one is the Gigantopithecus balcki and the other two is Gigantopithecus bilaspurensis and the Gigantopithecus giganteus.
