Caption: Modern human and Homo floriensis. Illustration comparing a modern human female (Homo sapiens sapiens) with a female Homo floriensis. The remains of this hominid were found in 2003 at the Liang Bua Cave on the island of Flores, Indonesia. The remains included a skull of a 30-year-old female named Little Lady of Flo. Her height was around 3 feet. H. floriensis had a small brain but evidence suggests that it used fire and tools and hunted in groups.
