    Post What distinguishes the Tungid Race?

    what distinguish the 'Tungid race'? and why do asians have epicathic fold? And what's the point with dark skin in northern Asia? Look at the Siberians and Inuits - they often tend to have pretty dark skin, not seldomly darker than that of the Chinese or Japanese in the south, even thouh they live on the same paralell as Germany and Scandinavia?

    The same parallels don't equate to the same climates.

    The climate in Canada, for example, is much colder than on the same paralell in Europe.

    The dark skin you're talking about is an adaptation to sun coming off the snow and ice, which can be pretty strong.

    Nordics are not really adapted to life in extreme cold. They are adapted to life in cloudy climates with moderately cold winters and warm summers. Very different from Northern Asia where the Mongols originated.

    Asian eye folds are an adaptation to extreme cold. So are fatty deposits on the cheeks.

    This is why the Lapps of Scandinavia approximate the Mongol look. The climate in northern Sweden is similar to that in Canada and Northern Asia.
