While moviegoers experienced the first third of Bilbo Baggins' Unexpected Journey, scientists have been working with a hobbit of their own. Called Homo floresiensis, and nicknamed "hobbits", the remains of this primitive ancestor to man was first discovered on an Indonesian island back in 2003. Now, researchers believe they have an approximation as to what one of these "hobbits" may have looked like. Sci-News Sorry to disappoint, Tolkien-fiends, but this hobbit is less Martin Freeman and more young-Danny DeVito (kind of, if you squint). Warning: Spoilers inside! "lol, what a Homo" Now, this is just an approximation, of course - but it's still worthwhile as an approximate glance back at our ancestry. As a modern human I may be a bit biased, but seeing that this evolutionary branch apparently split off from the ugly tree is doing wonders for my self-esteem. Ha, take that, long extinct precursor!
