Chinese researchers have found a new tribe of human species called Dragon Man – alive and well in Norfolk.

They say the Dragon Man is our closest relative, more so than the Neanderthals who live in the rest of Norfolk, but especially around Norwich.
Professor Lorraine Fisher, 34, of Suffolk University’s natural history department, said: “What you have here is a seperate branch of humanity that is not on its way to being Homo Sapiens like us.
“Instead the Norfolk Dragon Man species is a long-separate lineage that evolved in the county for several hundred thousand years.”
People from Suffolk accidentally straying into previously unexplored parts of Norfolk have often claimed to have spotted Dragon Man.
The Suffolk Gazette tracked down tribe leader Bubba Spuckler, who lives in a hovel in Downham Market with his sister and their five children.
His skull is huge, but not because it contains a large brain. Far from it. Norfolk. He has very low intelligence. He has almost square eye sockets and thick brow ridge, a wide mouth and oversized teeth.
Spuckler refused to be interviewed, possibly because all he can do is grunt.
