Hello, I am not a scientist by any means but I hope someone can explain this to me so I can understand.
Why is it that certain animals have evolved features for cold weather (such as thick fur) but humans like Eskimos have not? Contrarily, why is it that a people that have been living in a hot climate for many generations (like Africa) developed black skin instead of something more helpful like white or more reflective skin to help cool them off?
Just a question, thank you to anyone willing to help me out.
