It is estimated that this lineage branched apart 8 million years ago – one...Why humans did not evolve from apes?
This is why chimpanzees cannot become humans, they don’t have the right mutations. However this also means that humans can’t evolve into chimpanzees because we don’t have the right number of chromosomes or the right mutations.What did apes evolve from?
