Interesting Fact:

The discovery of remains belonging to a new short-statured, human-like species is causing a stir among anthropologists. The new species is named Homo floresiensis, after the Indonesian island (Flores Island), east of Java, where the skeleton of a three-foot tall adult female was discovered. The diminutive skeleton shares several important characteristics with modern humans, Homo sapiens, including a small, delicate face, small teeth, and adaptations for walking on two legs.
