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....

Oh man I just lost a bet with my wife that the former UPI reporter’s heinous image would already have been posted on this thread.
Leaky Loves Lucy.
FWIW current man and ‘neanderthals’ are genetically the same species.
Genetically this is no big deal.
No different than a Mastiff mating with a retriever.

Moochelle, is it you??
Actually, neanderthals had larger brains than homo sapiens. It's likely their decendants are amoung the brighter of our race.
So...Fred, Wilma, & Pebbles were not fictional characters after all.

Neanderthals lived much more sparsely than Cro-Magnon — smaller, further separated groups. When they met, there would be many more Cro-magnons than Neanderthals. Let’s say there were twenty Cro-Magnons for every one Neanderthal. If they freely interbred, then about five percent of the genes of the spawn would be Neanderthal......
Not even close. You post is retarded.
I mean, this was not just another racial group.....
I was taught that homo sapiens and neanderthal were two separate species, I was also taught that true hybrids are infertile. Modern horses don’t have donkey dna because their hybrid offspring, the mule, is infertile. If homo sapiens and neanderthal were truly two different species how can there be any neanderthal dna in modern humans?
There is zero possibility of us having genes in common with any hominid from interbreeding. Humans exterminated all hominids from the planet other than possibly for a few survivors (bigfoot etc.) surviving in areas which humans could not inhabit. Humans would not have tolerated crossbreeds amongst themselves.
I know a guy who saw some live ones at area 51. They had eyes that glowed red in the dark, and they were psychic. He was sworn to secrecy because the specimens were being used to model bad guys in the war games computer department of the NSA. The NAS supplies Holywood with all their monsters. The military determined that Neanderthal actually was itself a hybrid of aliens and bonobo. This is all true. It really is. There are movies and computer games to prove it. I would never pull your leg. Nope. Never.
Absurd picures. Probably would not look much different than an modern Australian aborigine.
That is the dirty little secret the PC police won’t tell you
I am reminded of the novelty song “Troglodyte”, by the Jimmy Castor Bunch.
bastard child of neanderthal male and raped cro-magnon female, on left, and neanderthal hybrid male with mutant cro-magnon chin on right- [notice that the neanderthal male on left is about to get arrested for using "finger gun' on national TV.]
I can see how it might happen. Dinner and a movie on the third date, then back to the pad for a nightcap, vanilla scented candles, with Barry White on in the background . . .
That’s really good.
