comment Why are lions the only social cats?
Simple answer - it was probably beneficial to them but not other species. This is a duplicate in my opinion biology.stackexchange.com/questions/35532/…

comment Driving force for speciation for millions of species today
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because its flawed, unclear, and poorly researched (seemingly random numbers in the calculations)

comment Driving force for speciation for millions of species today
Also: 3.5 billion years of life, and 10 million species says that one evolves every 350 years. But remember that speciation can occur in parallel (not sequentially), so growth in numbers can be exponential (i.e. 1 becomes 2 species, both of these can then speciate).

comment Driving force for speciation for millions of species today
Have we had enough time for millions of species? - yes. How do I know? Because there are millions of species. Life has been present on earth for billions of years. Also you seem to have plucked your numbers out of thin air - where is the data to support them?

comment How much would a Gigantopithecus be able to lift?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because answers would be primarily opinion based and the nature of the question is quite trivial thus not a good fit with the target audience of biology se.
