The Top Cryptozoology Stories of 2004. By Loren Coleman, author of Bigfoot!

  1. The Discovery of Homo floresiensis
    The story is as remarkable as the finding of the first coelacanth, the 65 million year extinct “living fossil” found off Africa in 1938. The biggest story in anthropology for 2004 may become the event of the decade within cryptozoology. The editor of Nature, Henry Gee, in an editorial entitled “Flores, God and Cryptozoology,” wrote: “The discovery that Homo floresiensis survived until so very recently, in geological terms, makes it more likely that stories of other mythical, human-like creatures such as Yetis are founded on grains of truth….Now, cryptozoology, the study of such fabulous creatures, can come in from the cold.”

See this site on evolution for some nice pictures of different fossil skulls.
