Thank you team, for your comments.
You are right Homo Sapiens survived because of their hunting and gathering skills.They were better at it than their fellow humans Homo Neanderthal and the other human groups (Homo erectus, Homo ergaster, Homo rudolfensis …..)
Some clever people have found, that we still have hunting and gathering skills in our blood. So there you are, we will/might be able to cope in a jungle environment.
Revised 11/11/17 – added other homo species.
