High-protein diet may explain anatomical differences of Neanderthals

It is believed Neanderthals lived in Ice-Age Europe, co-existing alongside modern-day humans, or Homo sapiens, until around 40,000 years ago.
In terms of appearance, Neanderthals were very similar to Homo sapiens, and the two species even mated. However, there were some notable differences. As well as being shorter and stockier, Neanderthals had a wider rib cage, or thorax, and a larger pelvis than our modern ancestors.
