According to scientists have discovered a new type of human DNA that is very different from that of Neanderthals and Denisovans.

There have been speculations and theories that the Neanderthals didn’t actually go extinct, but rather that they mixed with the Homo-sapiens throughout Europe. Hence, Neanderthal DNA can still be found today, present in the modern humans.

It would appear that scientists have now discovered that a Melanesian tribe carries traces of human DNA that haven’t be found anywhere else before.

This means that there may have been or there may still be a new species of human that we haven’t encountered before. How weird is that?
