Call me crazy, but this doesn’t sound impossible, but it is pretty incredible. It can also raise a lot of questions about past civilizations (and what in the world were they eating to get that big haha).
Archaeologists in Australia have discovered a gigantic 5.3 meters tall hominid specimen in the vicinity of the ancient ruins of the only megalithic civilization on the continent.
The fact that it was discovered right there, Professor Hans Zimmer, professor of Archaeology at the University of Adelaide, says, makes the discovery all the more intriguing.
The professor admits: “The discovery of the Uluru archaeological site last year already took us by surprise, but this new find is just jaw dropping. Theoretically, a five-meter-tall hominid cannot exist. How did this occur? How is this possible? Although this discovery is fascinating, we are left with more questions than answers.”
This is the largest human skeleton ever found in the history of mankind and even the archaeologists admit that they don’t know what to make of it. The 5 meters tall skeleton raises more questions than it gives answers, professor Zimmer admits.
There have been many theories regarding the incredible height of the specimen, some experts speculating that the most probable cause for the skeleton’s hyper-growth is extreme gigantism, a condition caused by the overproduction of growth hormones. But professor Zimmer says these theories are ‘pure speculation’.
