Ostrich eggs are gathered, and the empty shells are used as water containers.
Insects provide perhaps 10% of animal proteins consumed, most often during the dry season.
Various Y chromosome studies show that the San carry some of the most divergent (oldest) human Y-chromosome haplogroups.
These haplogroups are specific sub-groups of haplogroups A and B, the two earliest branches on the human Y-chromosome tree.
The San kinship system reflects their interdependence as traditionally small mobile foraging bands.
San kinship is comparable to Eskimo kinship, with the same set of terms as in European cultures, but also uses a name rule and an age rule.
As of 2010, the San population in Botswana numbers about 50,000 to 60,000.
Villages range in sturdiness from nightly rain shelters in the warm spring (when people move constantly in search of budding greens), to formalised rings, wherein people congregate in the dry season around permanent waterholes.
Children have no social duties besides playing, and leisure is very important to San of all ages.
Large amounts of time are spent in conversation, joking, music, and sacred dances.
Women's traditional gathering gear is simple and effective: a hide sling, a blanket, a cloak called a kaross to carry foodstuffs, firewood, smaller bags, a digging stick, and perhaps, a smaller version of the kaross to carry a baby. They kill their game using arrows and spears tipped in diamphotoxin, a slow-acting arrow poison produced by beetle larvae of the genus Diamphidia.
Historical evidence shows that certain San communities have always lived in the desert regions of the Kalahari; however, eventually nearly all other San communities in southern Africa were forced into this region.
