For this week's podcast, we discuss what makes the human foot unique. Compared to our closest relatives, humans have very unique features that allow us to specialize in bipedalism. We have an elongated mid foot with a limited range of motion and short toes. We walk from heal to toe, every other animal solely walks on their toes. This allows us to both sprint when needed as well as run for long distances. All of these features allowed humans to outrun and outlast most of the prey we hunted and turned us into apex predators.
