Rangers at the Way Kambas National Park in Lampung, Indonesia claim to have spent much of the past month chasing what they describe to be 20-inch
tall, dreadlocked pygmies.
The initial sighting reportedly happened March 20th around 6:40 pm explained Park spokesperson Sukatmoko, when rangers spotted the small beings
running quickly through the forested underbrush. Park rangers believe they might be utilizing the forests Nusantara Tropical Fruit plantation to
scavenge for food. When Park employees attempted to make contact with the nude pygmies they ran away very quickly, and “hid behind trees and
The next step at the Kamas National Park is to attempt to capture the pygmies on film.
“We believe they really exist in and we’re making strenuous efforts to find them. In the event that we do, we hope the government protects
them,” Sakatmoko explained to at small press conference to local reporters and academics.
“In Kerinci Seblat, they are known as the orang pendek [short people], in Flores as homo floresiensis, and in Bone as members of the Oni tribe. In
Mount Kerinci, the creature is depicted as having inverted legs but is very agile among the dense foliage,” Environment chapter director Mukri
Friatna further explained to reporters.
Interestingly enough this recent discovery could possibly lend further credence to the theory that Indonesia was once home to a very small race of
prehistoric human beings, affectionately deemed the “Hobbit People.”
Yes, I think the best thing to do is to capture this creature on camera. Why this been done before?
Another interesting cryptid report, I wonder if anything will come out of this... I wonder if it is going to be a new type of ape or maybe a monkey. I
don't know how much of a connection this could have to humans.
Anyway I thought I would bring this to all of your attention, because I damn well love these stories.
