I was thinking there could be a tie to ancient South African cave paintings, maybe resembling what UFO witnesses have reported seeing written on the side of a craft, but Ancient South African art for the most part is animals or hunting scenes. I was hoping there might be some evidence of their existence besides recovering their skull.

Whales and Elephants have brains larger than ours, and they are not more intelligent. What would make this bobblehead man smarter than modern man?

EDIT: Apologies, I probably should have read the rest of the thread before asking the same question as everyone else, lol.

Well, you are probably pretty smart. But, when was the last time you went into a cave and drew some pictures of UFO's and Aliens? So, maybe they were a little past that.

It is the region of the brain where the extra mass resides, that denotes intelligence. Different areas of the brain, do different things.
Studies have shown that animals with larger brains, such as whales and elephants, seem to have much of the extra mass devoted to managing the body, and/or, in some cases, managing certain enhanced senses.
Not the areas of the brain that are associated with thought and intelligence.

So, it all depends on where the extra size is distributed in the brain.
