Homo habilis were hominids that lived in the same place and time of Homo rudolfensis and Paranthropus boisei, another kind of hominid. They also lived with other creatures such as sabre-tooth cats like Dinofelis, and Megantereon, or Deinotherium, a gigantic elephant relative three times bigger than the modern African elephants.

They were about 1.30-1.35 metres tall and fed mostly on meat from carcasses of dead animals. Another kind of hominid, the Homo rudolfensis, was also carnivore, resulting in many confronts for food.

Homo Habilis was the first hominid to create stone tools, and they used it to broke bones of carcasses and eat the bone marrows inside them. That criativity allowed them to survive the next thousands of hundreds of years, what didn't happened with the other hominids like Homo rudolfensis and Paranthropus boisei.
