Hobbit-like creatures on Sumatra island
« on: November 05, 2004, 10:29:23 AM »
A BRAMHALL explorer could hold decisive clues to the discovery of "a new species of man", after it was claimed ‘hobbit-like’ creatures might still live in the unexplored Indonesian jungle.

Leading naturalist Henry Gee, senior editor at Nature magazine, made the astonishing claim after skeletons of 3ft tall ‘adult’ humans were discovered on the island of Flores by Australian archaeologists.

The discoveries prove that the new ‘homo floresiensis’ species lived until at least 12,000 years ago, when our own ancestors were colonising the Earth.

And our own intrepid Adam Davies, who says he has heard and collected hair samples from a Yeti-like creature on Sumatra, believes the finds have tipped the balance of scientific probability.

Adam, 35, said: "Sumatra is very near to Flores and it’s really likely that very small proportions of these creatures are surviving in remote areas."

Adam returned from his latest trip to the Indonesian jungle just last month with a second plaster cast of an unknown creature’s footprint and eye-witness accounts from locals claiming the creature, known as the ‘orang pendek’, had been sighted eating soft fruits.

His first trip to the island yielded a footprint and hair samples which scientists from Cambridge University and Australia confirmed belonged to no known species.

But it is not just the scientific community that is sitting up and taking notice of Adam’s discoveries - last week he appeared on the Richard and Judy show to talk about his experiences.

Adam is now working on getting a scientific paper published before his next expedition in search of the Almas, the mythical wild men of Mongolia.
