  3. 3. <ul><li>There is a numerous amount of hominid remains from many different types of hominids that are still being researched. </li></ul><ul><li>Although basically all the hominids have been found and classified, there is still much to learn about each and every one of those hominids. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>The remains of skulls can tell many things about an animal. </li></ul><ul><li>There are many indicators anthropologists look at that tell them different information about the animal under investigation. </li></ul>
