Reminder: The Cannibal in the Jungle Tonight

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on May 24th, 2015

Animal Planet’s dramatic story is an imaginative leap inspired by real science. In 2004, a study in the journal Nature announced the discovery of bones of an entirely new, remarkable species of humans. Fully grown adults stood only three feet tall, yet they were able to thrive in the chaotic and dangerous world that surrounded them. The new species was nicknamed “Hobbits,” after J.R.R. Tolkien’s diminutive heroes. These real hobbits are purported to have lived less than 20,000 years ago, which would make them the last other species of human to live alongside ourselves.

But did these hobbits fully go extinct? Later, 60 Minutes sent a film crew to investigate the Nature article. While on site in Flores, the crew unearthed the local legend that the creatures may have never died out at all.

Tune in tonight, May 24, 9/8c for the feature film premiere

Posted by: Adam Davies on March 21st, 2014

Two of the most common questions I am asked are: “Do the hominids you have looked for use tools or fire?” and “Are they relic Neanderthals?”

I thought I would combine the two questions to make some observations for your consideration. These are based on my experience of looking for tangible evidence in Nepal, Sumatra, China, Russia, India, Mongolia and the U.S.A.
