While we are exploring the cross-breeding output possibility. Looking at that extended skull. Now imagine what kind of changes would have to occur to allow this skull form to be a normal birth. Need an expert on that before we jump to any conclusion.
Another question is who they needed protection from by building underground. Perhaps they only way to hear whispers from their gods was in absolute silence. The sound amplification in the caves would make an excellent connection for that OR if some of the caves were connected at one time would this make a way to do longer range secure communication?

Thanks for the read, I believe all stories derive from something, just some may be more fantasy than reality. But its all we have nowadays, like a skeleton we can see what a site has become and know the stories that may be associated but the life it lived? Always hard to unearth.
The rumors are all over Malta with people trying to dig themselves a basement and then stumble on to graves or man made tunnels. Some proven and some not. Unfortunatly I heard of a rumor that there was a 'Mark 2' version of the Hal-Saflieni Hypogeum in Zejtun on Tal-Barrani Road (Lies close to the Hal-Saflieni Hypogeum and Tarxien Temples Wiki... Tas-Silg where a local farmer found over 3000 skeletal remains. Then destroyed them and the complex underneath to allow construction permits to rebuild his Farmhouse. This pattern of descruction in Malta is common because the country might as well be a museum with no housing or any where to work if everything was preserved. The Maltese Goverment knows this and selects certain projects to go ahead or to be 'buried' and litterally for that matter. Back in 1990s 3 more small temple sites were found within walking distance to Ghar Dalam but as so much funding was already placed into Ghar Dalam the order was to have 2 of the sites buried again after photo and sample collection and the 3rd has remained behind a sheet metal fence ever since. In the future there are plans to re-enquire into the sites all over Malta but at this time. Not going to happen.

It is a given fact the most ancient cultures accepted the concept of other races and not just spirits, this is a good page that is related to the hopi legends of there people being sheltered by another race called the ant people whom lived underground.
Of course in many of these the authors have allowed there preconcieved notions to colour there page but read between the lines as there are some interesting clues.
I personally believe,
We are not the first intelligent species
There may be alien races that could have and may still visit the earth for there own agenda
There may have been a catastrophic occurance at a time of intelligent races living on the earth and some may have survived underground and adapted to there new environment
Somebody knows the truth and is sitting on it for there own control, greed and power reasons or maybe to keep us safe in our blind ignorance of a world they think we could not handle.
This transcript of the hopi tale is interesting,
Vibrational chakra atop the head, following a star by night and a cloud by day to a place of safety, Telepathic race's whom were different but understood one another.
The underground city or base is called an anthill but it is really interesting.

There is also a case in History about 40 or 50 years ago of 2 children were found almost dead, from underground, kind of reptile shaped heads and white-ish blue skin, but otherwise appeared normal. Kind of. Their eyes sometimes looked a, ' bit snake like or cat like. '
Both were in poor health as though having difficulty adjusting to top air and spoke an unknown language. ( Sorry... that was a quote from the couple who took them in )
They were apparently age 12 for the boy & 14 for the girl.
The boy died after about 6 months. No reason stated.
The girl apparently started to take on a normal skin tone and become more human after a time, married & had children.
The Gypsonville, Manitoba. Canada town should have archives somewhere and also read this on here before.
I believed it then, this only alleviates any doubts.
The legend of the green children of Woolpit concerns two children of unusual skin colour who reportedly appeared in the village of Woolpit in Suffolk, England, some time in the 12th century, perhaps during the reign of King Stephen. The children, brother and sister, were of generally normal appearance except for the green colour of their skin. They spoke in an unknown language, and the only food they would eat was beans. Eventually they learned to eat other food and lost their green pallor, but the boy was sickly and died soon after the children were baptised. The girl adjusted to her new life, but she was considered to be "rather loose and wanton in her conduct". After she learned to speak English the girl explained that she and her brother had come from St Martin's Land, an underground world whose inhabitants are green.
The only near-contemporary accounts are contained in Ralph of Coggeshall's Chronicum Anglicanum and William of Newburgh's Historia rerum Anglicarum, written in about 1189 and 1220 respectively. Between then and their rediscovery in the mid-19th century, the green children seem to surface only in a passing mention in William Camden's Britannia in 1586, and in Bishop Francis Godwin's fantastical The Man in the Moone, in both of which William of Newburgh's account is cited.
Two approaches have dominated explanations of the story of the green children: that it is a folk tale describing an imaginary encounter with the inhabitants of another world, perhaps one beneath our feet or even extraterrestrial, or it is a garbled account of a historical event. The story was praised as an ideal fantasy by the English anarchist poet and critic Herbert Read in his English Prose Style, published in 1931. It provided the inspiration for his only novel, The Green Child, written in 1934.
By the looks of the terrain, it must be quite harsh. High winds very hot summers and very cold winters. They might have seeked to dig underground for shelter.
The first level is very similar to tombs found in Xemxija in Malta. Some rooms are natural caves which were later artificially extended. The second level was only opened when the original builders found that this level was no longer adequate. This level is only ten metres below the surface
The population gradually decreased, but some inhabitants still remained there at the beginning of the nineteenth century. According to popular accounts, the British colonial government forcibly expelled the last residents in the 1830s and resettled them in nearby villages.

All extremely good points and the only logical conclusion based on the AVAILABLE evidence and its interpretion (which can be a matter of contention especially between geologists, archaeologist and there usual allies anthropologists but all three camps do not always agree and claim the other are wrong).
I do not think alien visitation or even similar life from elsewere is impossible just very unlikely (unless the univers is truly infinite in which case it is 50/50) but I do think that the presence of intelligent life on earth may have happend before and possible several time's but yes humans are the dominant species or are they.
An ancient chinese parable read "the most cunning animal is the one no man has yet seen", I also think our own race may have had many other branches and that it is not just survival by merit but that a random hand may have been dealt many times by natural and perhaps none natural catastrophy's.
What if the model of evolution to the large brained neanderthal was wrong and there was a vast missing segment were they where actually descendants of a devolved group of survivors with a limited gene pool whom interbred and suffered forced adaptation while seeking shelter from the hostile world they had found themselves thrust into in the only place they felt safe, underground, hiding from the sky were they could light there cooking fires were they could not be seen or attacked from the terrible sky, there have been several example of primitive structures believed to have been made by neanderthal and other earlier peoples such as three sided structure's with a suspected hide forth side so they did not need to live in caves as they could have been nomadic hunters unless something drove them into the cave's.
What if the neanderthal were actually the ruined devolved survivors of an even more advanced race than the cro magnon whom they may have shared a lost common ancestor with other than the badly pieced together parts of the accepted evolutionary tree (one which is based on evidence that if presented in isolation to each of the three camps may reveal schism's and rifts in there sciences that could not be bridged without one camp to the other accepting defeat, we know Now they could probable speak perfectly well and the long held belief they could barely grunt is totally wrong.
Scientist are human beings and we sometime bend the result's or tweak the theory to support our cherished view's and we are not alway's correct, sometime's doing this most unscientific of actions can result in a cascade of erroneous data that can in time result in undermining an entire scientific field., Remember what happens when the mis place a decimal in the calculations for a moon shot and these three camps are no were near as rigorous as a rocket scientist are they so how many mistakes that have built up have they made over time and how solid are the foundation of there hypothesis which is regarded as correct in the absence of competing theory's with strong backing.
When reason is not reasonable it is no longer reason.
