Region of origin: Sri Lanka

A community of small hominins, possibly a species of Australopithecus, said to exist on Sri Lanka identified as far back as 400 AD in texts by Pliny the Elder but with supposed fossil evidence and sightings of living creatures persisting through to the Twentieth Century and today. They lived in trees and caves and hunted small game, utilizing long claw-like nails but have also been said to steal food away from human encampments.
