A few years ago the world of paleoanthropology was jolted by a discovery having the potential to rewrite much of what was considered to be established fact.
The discovery were the skeletal remains of a purported new species of mankind that became known as Homo floresiensis that stood on the average about three to three and half feet tall – due to their diminutive stature they were promptly nicknamed “hobbits”.
Dispute still continues whether the Hobbits actually qualify as a species or the size of the discovered remains were the result of a genetic deformity and non inclusive of others.
The latest discovery, and one that will surely lead to speculation and discussion is an extant species discovered in the midst of modern society distinguished not by physical form but behavior and ideology.
This new species has been dubbed Homo Trumplodytes due to in part to the striking similarities attributed to actual and mythical Troglodytes who lived in caves and were known for their brutish and reactionary behavior.
