    as the team who discovered the hobbits is taken over, the reason for their small size could be surfacing as the original team cry out that their findings are true. a human with a disease that causes bodily abnormalities internal and external has been matched to the bodies found. the disease thought to be responsible for the external issues making modern humans look like hobbits can also result in the small brains found in the bodies.

    What caught my attention in that article, besides the whole "Hobbit" species mind you, was mention of a pygmy elephant. I wasn't aware of them before.
