Homo floresiensis

The discovery of remains of this human-like species on the island of Flores back in 2003 was very exciting. Dubbed the 'Hobbit' by the media, these were tool wielding creatures that stood just 3 feet in height and were around as recently as 12,000 years ago. Amazingly they may have lived contemporaneously with modern humans. There is still speculation as to the exact species; are they a diminutive Australopithecus? or perhaps just humans with pathologies inhibiting growth? I prefer the former. I depicted this scene of a family group of Hobbits being chased by a giant monitor lizard (of a type similar the extant Komodo Dragon) for the Centre for Fortean Zoology in 2004
