Quadriplegic Family

Decent Essays
The quadriplegic family that miraculously walks on all fours was first introduced in the early 2000’s by Turkish evolutionary biologist, Uner Tan. It is difficult to fathom there is one human let alone multiple family that are mobile by means of all their limbs. The family that houses these quadriplegic miracles are 19 children strong, 5 of those children are the focus of our attention. This astonishing sight proceeds to the wonderment; is this behavior of mobility by choice? Is it a specific condition? Or are these individuals lacking an instrumental portion of their anatomy that would require them to walk amongst us bipedally? According to Tan, scientists once speculated that this was a result of a lost trait during human evolution.
