Real-world Hobbits ‘are a separate species’

Scientists have found more evidence that the Indonesian “Hobbit” skeletons are a new species of human and not modern pygmies as was hypothesized.

The 3ft (one metre) tall, 30kg (65lbs) humans roamed the Indonesian island of Flores, perhaps up to 8,000 years ago.

Since the discovery, researchers have argued vehemently as to the identity of these diminutive people.
