Evolution could give humans bigger toes, cat eyes and more hair



Humans of the future could have bigger toes, cat eyes and increased body hair.

According to leading paleoanthropologist Dr Matthew Skinner, changes in climate, the development of technology or lack of natural resources will make the human body evolve with bigger toes and slanted eyes with translucent eyelids also being a possible feature.

Using digital drawings by artist Quentin Devine, Skinner explains how humans will develop webbed hands due to rising sea levels.

Other changes include very pale skin and more muscular physiques would be the consequence of a second ice age.

What’s more, colonising another planet could lead to humans having smaller mouths and loss of teeth.

The research has been conducted to celebrate the premiere of ‘Extant Season 2’ on Syfy.
