I was watching Good Morning America this morning and they say that they found human remains on an Indonesian island that are half the size of humans. Approximately three feet tall and they are referring to them as hobbits.
LONDON (Reuters) – Scientists in Australia have found a new species of hobbit-sized humans who lived about 18,000 years ago on an Indonesian island in a discovery that adds another piece to the complex puzzle of human evolution.
The partial skeleton of Homo floresiensis, found in a cave on the island of Flores, is of an adult female that was a meter (3 feet) tall, had a chimpanzee-sized brain and was substantially different from modern humans.
Hobbits, as made up by the Lord of the Rings movies, are not real, however they may become real. I hope not as I doubt a living thing could never live up to the standards as set by the movies.
