Why do biggest land mammals like elephants, rhinos hippos, giraffes and gaurs only live in Africa or south Asia, even though mammals of the same clad are bigger in colder climate?

    Coevolution with humans, all other contients were probably too suprised to quickly adapt to us invasive master species

      It's got less to do with the victims and more to do with the perpetrators. Africans have been very primitive and low in number for most of history. It is only in recent centuries that they have gotten into the hundreds of millions and been introduced even to steel, let alone guns. On the other continents, the evolutionary changes required to leave Africa and adapt to other areas required advancements that also lead to more destructive tool use and living habits.

    Because humans killed them everywhere else. Not only did North America have 5 species of elephants only 10-12,000 years ago, but the Columbian Mammoth was one of the largest land mammals of all time.

      This isn't true though

        Yes it is. The largest land mammals to ever live are Palaeoloxodon spp., Paraceratherium, and a cluster of Mammuthus spp. Including the Steppe / Columbian mammoth.

      Humans didn't wipe out North American mega fauna. The Younger Dryas extinction event did that.

        Wrong and moron pilled. The Late Pleistocene extinctions occur at different times on different continents and these extinctions ALWAYS have a strong correlation to when humans arrive. Not only that, but there is also ALWAYS clear evidence of strong human hunting pressures.

          This here; for the most recent example the giant moa birds were thriving in New Zealand before the ancestors of the Maori showed up around 1300 AD; those proto Maori hunted then to extinction in roughly a century. Another case point would be the Wrangel Island mammoths. Normally small, isolated populations of creatures are more vulnerable to climate change and what not. Yet a small group of mammoths held out on Wrangel Island, way up in the Artic sea, for thousands of years after the mammoths on the mainland died off.

            "Climate change" didn't kill even ONE (1) Late Pleistocene animal. Not a single one. Every single one was killed by humans. People seem to forget that the tropics were much the same as they are now back then and even in the colder regions there is STILL habitat for animals like Woolly Mammoths (which it may surprise some redditards to know are not the only fricking animal that existed 12,000 years ago). There is absolutely NO explanation for how tropical animals also went extinct in the Late Pleistocene except by human activity. And it gets worse. Animals like the wild horse (Equus ferus) were native all the fricking way from IRELAND TO TIERRA DEL FRICKING FUEGO, yet every single one was hunted to oblivion except for those that were domesticated and a small group in central Asia that humans hadn't gotten around to killing yet. There is no natural explanation for range contraction to that insane degree for an animal that inhabited everything from tropical marshland to arctic tundra.

              Except those living in rapidly aridifying environments

                Nope. Megafauna have this ability called "walking".

      Because early humans drove the ones in Europe, North America, and South America to extinction.

      why are africans so shit at hunting?

      >why?
      Because African megafauna especially had a lot of time to wise up and adapt to humanity's bullshit, given that's where we began and perfected the art of "throw rock"

        Africans have always been mediocre to say it nicely. If they built civilizations they'd have exterminated all big land predators and domesticated big land mammals.
        There is no way europeans wouldn't have extermianted hippos. We literally have legends of knights fighting dragons and shit, the stories of our ancestors killing every big animal in sight are recorded into our canon.

          Agriculture exists, anon. why do you want to extinguish megafauna species? it's shitty that early man pushed most megafauna to extinction, not cool. Also, the post you're replying to literally disproved you. it's because the megafauna in africa evolved alongside humans, not because africans are bad at hunting. that's a stupid hypothesis.
