Recently, hominides were discovered in Central Europe.
They are presumably creatures deriving from a failed genetic experiment who had been hiding up to now.
Partly, the Squames show typically human behaviour patterns (modesty
etc.). The groups are protected by male leaders who are also responsible for
sorting things out within the families.
Thanks to this social structure, the Squames can withstand their greatest natural enimies: civilazation on the one hand and man on the other.
