Is this a member of Indonesia’s lost pygmy tribe?

Mysterious small figure is caught on camera

A group of bikers captured on camera a mysterious half-naked ‘tribesman’ that was seen running down a dirt track in Indonesia.

The small man was spotted near Banda Aceh, on the northern tip of the island of Sumatra.


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 motorcyclists were travelling down the track when they saw the bald man leap out of the trees.

Some people think that the mysterious man is a member of a lost pygmy tribe in Indonesia called Mante, which is said that they were smaller than the average man. According to locals, they flee when they see people from the outside world.


The only record of the supposed tribe was in the 17th century, when it was claimed two Mante tribesmen were captured and presented to the Sultan, although most people think they are just a legend.
