No One Believed These People Existed, Until They Caught Them On Camera For The First Time Ever
It's nearly impossible for us to imagine being disconnected from society. With the push of a button, we can interact with people on the opposite side of the globe. Yet remarkably, there are still a number of individuals who remain disconnected from the outside world.
Recently, new images have emerged of an individual who has been living in the heart of the Amazon rainforest completely alone. Amazing as this may seem, the story of how he came to be alone in the vast jungle is truly heartbreaking...
The Amazon rainforest covers a staggering 2,100,000 miles and is home to millions of unique plant, insect, and animal species. But birds and flowers aren't the only creatures that dwell in this jungle.
According to the Brazilian agency for native tribes known as FUNAI, the Amazon is home to 113 indigenous groups that have yet to make contact with the outside world. Of these 113, only 27 have been captured on film. That is, until now.
For the first time, photos have emerged of a lone tribesman living in the heart of the jungle. To those who have seen him, this enigmatic individual is known as "The Man in the Hole".
The man was first sighted in 1996, when researchers caught a glimpse of him wandering through the forests of Brazil's Rondonia State. It is believed that the 50-year-old man has been surviving alone in the dense jungle for roughly 22 years.
