Tiny Hominids in the Ancient Philippines
they eventually found more hominid bones, including these teeth. These are adult hominid teeth but they are tiny, which makes the excavators think this person was less than 4 feet tall (1.2 m).
It's a very cool discovery because it adds to the growing picture of very diverse hominids living in the geologically very recent past, perhaps recent enough to have fed old folktales about goblins, bigfoot, and other semi-human creatures. But a few bones and teeth is not a lot to hang a news species on.
