TRUTH !!
Scientists have found skeletons of a hobbit-like species of human that grew
no larger than a three-year-old modern child. 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.
Australian and Indonesian researchers discovered bones of the miniature
humans in a cave on Flores, an island east of Bali and midway between Asia
and Australia.
Scientists have determined that the first skeleton they found belongs to a
species of human completely new to science. Named Homo floresiensis, after
the island on which it was found, the tiny human has also been dubbed by dig
workers as the "hobbit," after the tiny creatures from the Lord of the
Rings books.

The original skeleton, a female, stood at just 1 meter (3.3 feet) tall,
weighed about 25 kilograms (55 pounds), and was around 30 years old at the
time of her death 18,000 years ago.
The skeleton was found in the same sediment deposits on Flores that have
also been found to contain stone tools and the bones of dwarf elephants,
giant rodents, and Komodo dragons, lizards that can grow to 10 feet (3
meters) and that still live today.
