A human (also called a human being or person) is a member of the species Homo sapiens. Homo sapiens means 'wise man' in Latin.

Carolus Linnaeus put humans in the mammalian order of primates. Apes are also primates. They are the nearest animal relations to humans. Humans are social animals. They usually live in groups. They help and protect each other. They care for their children. Humans are bipedal, which means they walk on two legs. Humans have a complex brain. That lets them use language, make ideas, and feel emotions. This brain, and the fact that arms are not needed for walking, lets humans use tools. Humans use tools more than any other species.

There are humans living on every continent expect Antarctica.
