  • Close. But not what we were looking for, keep trying.

  • Roolstar

    MAN

    On four as a baby
    On two as an adult (or child)
    On three as an old man (supporting himself with a crane or something)

  • Yes, that is the answer. MAN

    (and that would be a cane, not a crane).

    You are today’s winner.

  • Sid

    Hey it is none other than we ourselves!!!!!! Human Beings!! See, when we are a small kid, we walk on our 2 feet and our 2 hands. That’s morning. When we are old enough to walk on our two feet we do that. That’s Afternoon. And when we are old, we need a stick to support ourselves. That’s three feet and the twilight!!!!! So it’s HUMAN BEINGS!!!!! Hope I am correct…….

  • Sid

    Oh man……. I din bother to see that the winner had been declared….. Hardly few hours before I could say that…. Hard Luck to me……..

  • That’s ok Sid, we love having you contribute. Please keep up the good work.
    Dude

  • Roolstar

    Hehe, cane sure. Unless he was a giant of course :)

  • Conscriptor

    Easy.
    Man.

    Four feet/Morning = Baby. Babies crawl on hands and knees.
    Two feet/Afternoon = Full-grown man. They walk on two legs.
    Three feet/Evening = Old man with a cane.

    However, you can look it up on any search engine online, and the Sphinx riddle will pop up. I didn’t do that, but there are cheaters who don’t appreciate the genius of riddles.

  • Angela

    Human. In the morning is when a human is still a baby where it crawls on four. In the afternoon is when the human is a teen where it walks on two feet. In the twilight is when the human is old where they walk with a cane.

  • man creeps on hands and knees in childhood, walks upright in adulthood,and in old age uses a cane
