Homo neanderthalensis (Latin: "Neanderthal man") is the binomial nomenclature for an extant species of human that has been resurrected through genetic engineering.
Neanderthals are a highly intelligent species, whose intellect rivals that of Sapiens. They mysteriously went extinct 30,000 years ago due to reasons that are still unknown to science. Thanks to modern technology, the species has undergone de-extinction.
A less common nickname for the current population of Neanderthals currently alive is 'Neo-Neanderthal'.
