The female Homo Habilis weighed around 70 lbs. and their height was an average of four to three and a half feet tall. The males were slightly taller than the female and weighed more than the female.
Homo Habilis weren’t able to make fire. This species had to wait until they found something burning from natural causes such as a lightning strike. Homo Habilis had to keep a close eye on the campfire because if it went out, they didn’t know how to start it again.
