Humans (known taxonomically as Homo sapiens), are the only living species in the Homo genus of bipedal primates in Hominidae, the great ape family. Humans have a highly developed brain, capable of abstract reasoning, language, introspection, and problem solving. This mental capability, combined with an erect body carriage that frees the hands for manipulating objects, has allowed humans to make far greater use of tools than any other living species on Earth. — Wikipedia
