" Humans can take anywhere from six months to two years to acquire this basic skill"

What, really? I've heard of babies walking as early as none months, but 6 months seems a bit extreme. If this entry is going to stick with that age, which must be a very few number of kids, then perhaps the upper age should be changed to five years?

"Concidering the entry suggest even experienced walkers trip over sometimes. I take it the six months is about walking along.

Was ther not an african tribe with children extreme early walking free?"

I agree with Mina. That should really be "nine months" rather than "six months" as the lower limit for children learning to walk.

"Well it is not in 'Desmond Morris's 'Baby', though I am sure I read it by someone authoritive.

Some african tribe where the children learned walking etremely early. NB 'Desmond' suggests as soon as nineth or tenth month is no exception.

If there is one African tribe where babies walk early, is that really a reason to put it into an entry (that is about walking in general) as if it's something usual?

Many babies don't even sit up until 7/8 months.

"You are absolutely right, it should not be mentioned in the entry as 'common'.

I will post it to EF < F47997?thread=522231 >.

What age they start counting? 'Mesologist': 'Waterrat' started at three months.

Mommy counting from the bed after some protests 'Mommy is coming: one, two, . . . ' and then from the cradle 'tie' ."
