Hi, Chloe. In truth, H. habilis is not a well-defined species. Anthropologists can't seem to agree what specimens fit in that species, whether the species should be in the genus Homo or Australopithecus, or whether the species should even exist, because of the variance between the "accepted" specimens. Of course, scientists hope these issues can be cleared up through continued research.
