Abatwa


Said to be the tiniest creatures in human form that are in existence, these little people coexist peaceably with the ants in the anthills of Southern Africa and live on their foraging from the roots of grasses and other plants. Also being the shyest human form creatures on earth, they stay extremely elusive and are hardly ever seen. However, they may reveal themselves to children under the age of four, wizards and pregnant women. If a woman in her seventh month of pregnancy happens to see a male abatwa, it is a definite omen that she will give birth to a boy. Abatwa are perfect miniatures of the members of the African tribes of that region, and their clan and family structures are similar. However, their peaceful nature lets them live together with the ants in perfect harmony, with neither seeking to dominate the other.
