Monkey teeth suggest Flores hobbit's a dwarf

1 post in this topic

COULD the world's tiniest monkey help unravel the mysterious origins of Homo floresiensis, the "hobbit" human relative?

The hobbit's skull is similar to that of a taller hominin, Homo erectus. This suggests to some that H. floresiensis, whose remains were found on an Indonesian island 10 years ago, was a dwarf species that evolved from this larger one. However, its brain and teeth are proportionally much smaller than in typical dwarf species, which others say indicates the hobbit is merely an unusual form of our species. But perhaps the hobbit was not a typical dwarf.
