The skeletal remains of an individual living in northern Italy 40,000-30,000 years ago are believed to be that of a human/Neanderthal hybrid, according to a paper in PLoS ONE.
If further analysis proves the theory correct, the remains belonged to the first known such hybrid, providing direct evidence that humans and Neanderthals interbred. Prior genetic research determined the DNA of people with European and Asian ancestry is 1 to 4 percent Neanderthal.
The present study focuses on the individuals jaw, which was unearthed at a rock-shelter called Riparo di Mezzena in the Monti Lessini region of Italy. Both Neanderthals and modern humans inhabited Europe at the time.
From the morphology of the lower jaw, the face of the Mezzena individual would have looked somehow intermediate between classic Neanderthals, who had a rather receding lower jaw (no chin), and the modern humans, who present a projecting lower jaw with a strongly developed chin, co-author Silvana Condemi, an anthropologist, told Discovery News....

Look around you. Some of those human-neanderthal hybrids are still here.
“Theory” = guess = more grant money = still a “theory” = more grant money = repeat forever.....
I expected a dateline from Missing Link, Mississippi.
Broadcasting on MSNBC, and in charge of blue states and running the Senate.
Wookie/Neanderthal hybrid..............yeah, they are still around.
democRATS no doubt.
I’m pretty sure our high school football coach came from this line...
If you are of European or middle eastern ancestry you have some high quality, get the job done, hard headed Neanderthal genetics. Be thankful.
Now you can marry a Neanderthal.
Humans will breed with anything that will stand still long enough. Obama has proven that.
On a similar note:
If you are of Asian ancestry you have some high quality, get the job done, hard headed Homo erectus/Peking man genetics. Be thankful.
My bride of 32 years, already did.
you said “Homo erectus”. Tehe tehe....
Look to the WH. You know the one telling you what you should and shouldn’t eat with a butt bigger than J’lo’s
Maybe it wasn’t a “love” child at all ..... maybe she couldn’t make it to a blue light “safe zone” in time & CCW (carrying club weapon) wasn’t allowed. /s
When Richard “Dick” Leakey was out on an archaeological dig and had to relieve himself the one thing he was wary of was a Peking Man.
