All of a sudden, Big Foot no longer seems like a mere myth. Scientists have discovered a new species of Homo: "little people" living on the Indonesian island of Flores. It was one of the most unexpected and exciting scientific discoveries of the year.
In the 1940s, the Scottish-born zoologist Ivan T. Sanderson began using a word he coined, "cryptozoology," to describe a new subdiscipline of zoology that studied hidden, as yet-to-be-discovered large animals.
The Discovery of Homo floresiensis The story is as remarkable as the finding of the first coelacanth, the 65 million year extinct "living fossil" found off Africa in 1938.
This is a new interpretation of the Flores woman, Homo floresiensis, by wildlife artist Richard Klyver.
It is based on the 2004 Australian and Indonesian discovery viewed in terms of Loren Coleman's cryptozoology research on recent evidence, such as sightings and folklore, of Asia's unknown hominoids.
On October 27, 2004, Nature announced an entirely new species of Homo, concurrently living with modern humans (Homo sapiens), from the Indonesian island of Flores.
It is time to look again at reports of little people, with an eye to the discovery of their subfossil remains and living existence, from Sri Lanka to the South Pacific.
The animals have large, black faces, are six feet tall and have pronounced sagittal crests.
In 2003, Pepsi sponsored a Japanese expedition in search of the Yeti, and Disney announced that 2005 might be the Year of the Yeti because of their new exhibition in Orlando.
So it is not surprising to hear that Nicolas Cage, the actor in 2004's successful movie, National Treasure, was telling the trade magazines that "scientists are convinced that somewhere in the Asian mountains of Tibet there is a short red-haired two-legged ape man....I'm fascinated by that kind of thing; fascinated by the as-yet undiscovered, but possible.
Yukon Bigfoot In June, a "Bushman" sighting near Teslin, Yukon, a Tlingit village, became the most frequently discussed Bigfoot story of the year.
