Homo_floresiensisBones6957.jpg
Homo floresiensis foot alongside modern human foot. Extrapolating the length of the missing hobbit calcanus (heel bone), suggests that hobbit feet were as large as our own, though they stood no taller than today's 5-year-olds. Like Tolkien's hobbits, the Flores hobbits were short of stature and long of foot.
