I'm just a survivor of the wooly mammoth population
Bottle neck effect, sorta born deaf
In biology, when a population undergoes a bottleneck, or a drastic reduction of the number of organisms in a population, successive generations stand a much larger chance of random mutation or birth defects — this is similar to the genetic problem of inbreeding, where similar organism that share a large portion of their genome are more susceptible to birth defects.
This is one of the more popular theories as to why the woolly mammoth went extinct — as prehistoric man increased his hunting pressure on the mammoth, smaller populations were more likely to have genetic deficiencies, making them even more likely to be killed by prehistoric man.
The survivors of a bottleneck are the most capable: strongest, smartest etc.
So if he’s the survivor he’s born def, or naturally talented
