Ebu Gogo News

From today's Anomalist:

"Legendary Humanoids: Ebu Gogo, the Flores Island Hobbit Phantoms & Monsters.
The tales of Ebu Gogo, literally translated as "grandmother who eats everything," may be based on the memory of Homo floresiensis, the diminutive humans believed to have become extinct on the Indonesian island of Flores about 12,000 years ago. Here Lon Strickler collects what is known from inhabitants of the island about their legendary little people. Could there still be pockets of the little people existing in the rain forest, and could the islanders have interbred with these diminutive humans? With images and video."
