Scientists have found "hobbit" remains in Indonesia

Quote:
Scientists have found skeletons of a hobbit-like species of human that grew no larger than a three-year-old modern child (See pictures). The tiny humans, who had skulls about the size of grapefruits, lived with pygmy elephants and Komodo dragons on a remote island in Indonesia 18,000 years ago.


The image below is a reconstruction by a forensic anthropologist from Australia, Susan Hayes from the University of Wollongong. She created her image using the skull of an adult female of the species found in a cave on the island of Flores. Anthropologists estimate that they stood about a meter (roughly three feet) high, and weighed about seventy pounds.
