WHY do Eskimos tend to be short and compact and Africans long and lean?

It all has to do with the climate in which hundreds of generations of their people have spent their lives.

People who have lived in the cold Arctic need to save every bit of heat their bodies can produce. The more skin they have, the more heat they will lose.

People who live in very hot places must be able to lose body heat, or they would be too warm. That's why many Africans tend to be tall, with long arms and long legs. - bigsiteofamazingfacts.com
