Two men were riding motorcycles in a remote section of Indonesia, when what appears to be a short man appears wearing no clothes and carrying a large stick or spear. He could be a member of the Mante tribe. There has been no record of any Mante since the 1700’s when 2 were captured and turned over to the Sultan of Sumatra. It really wouldn’t be that unusual. Tribes in South America have been found over the last few decades that were believed to have died out. They live so deep in the rain forest, they are hard to reach and attack invaders with arrows and spears dipped in curare.
The motorcyclists were travelling down the track when they saw the bald man leap out of the trees.
The footage shows one of the bikers falling on the ground as the mystery figure runs away from the group.
One of the bikers continues down the track in pursuit of the skittish man, who jumps into the bushes by the side of the road.
The group stop at the spot where the man disappeared and look for him in the bushes.
The grass is so high that they can no longer see the figure as he slipped into the trees behind.
A couple of the motorcyclists venture into the bushes to try and see where the ‘tribesman’ went and find the large stick he was carrying.
Some viewers think that the mysterious man is a member of a lost pygmy tribe in Indonesia.
The mythical Mante tribe are said to be smaller than the average man and flee when they see people from the outside world.
In that area scientists have found remains of a tribe known as Homo floresiensis, that were found on the other side of the archipelago. The hobbit like creatures were about 3 1/2 feet tall and had small brains and no chins. (No to be mistaken for liberals who have small chins and no brain)
