SourceThe discovery of a skeleton of a woman barely one meter tall who hunted pygmy elephants and giant rats 18,000 years ago could rewrite the origins of humanity, scientists in Australia said Thursday.
The perfectly preserved skeleton, about as big as a modern 3-year-old and with a grapefruit-sized skull, was found in a cave on the Indonesian island of Flores, about 600 kilometers east of Bali.
The female, nicknamed the Flores Hobbit, has been identified as a completely new member of the human race in the latest edition of the journal Nature.
The skeleton of the 30-year-old woman was found by a team from Australia's University of New England and the Indonesian Center for Archaeology in Jakarta.
Now that they may have discovered the remains of Dwarfs... what other mythological/legendary creatures do you think may have existed in the past?
I have heard that the legend of the Unicorn comes from the Rhino.. any others?
Do you think this discovery will change any current theories?
Is anyone interested in our little cousins at all?
