The Hobbit

. Thursday, April 23

This is a photo of the skull cast made by using three dimensional computed tomography (3D CT). The skeleton was found in Indonesia in 2003 and scientists believe it is another hominid species that lived around 17,000 years ago. Nicknamed the 'Hobbit', it stood 3 feet 5 inches tall and weighed around 70 pounds. It walked upright, made tools from stone, lived in caves, hunted and used fire.
