Should we move on to the second part of this question....

Hello NakedScientists!

I'm wondering why humans don't have a mating season ike other animals and why there aren't many species of human?

What do you think?

In fact there is only one species of human.

Good spotting.
How can we ever live with ourselves if that question went unanswered!

Because humans aren't animals. We were created much differently than animals.

Well, I don't think that's true.  We are animals, and were not created.  We evolved from a common ancestor with the other great apes. Unless you're suggesting we're a very unusual form of plant, fungi or bacteria?

Why is there only one species of human?  I think Homo Sapiens outcompeted the competition.  There's some suggestion that early humans ate neanderthals - http://www.guardian.co.uk/science/2009/may/17/neanderthals-cannibalism-anthropological-sciences-journal.
