Possible Extraterrestrial Baby Skeleton Found In Peru [video]_Featured_, Extraterrestrial Sunday, October 14th, 2012
Peruvian anthropologist Renato Davila Riquelme has discovered what appears to be the mummified remains of an alien-like creature, including a triangle shaped skull nearly as big as its 20-inch-long body. The skeleton was found south of Cuzco, at an Apu (sacred mountain) associated with Viracocha, the creator god of the Inca civilization.
Riquelme himself posits that the remains are those of a child. Peruvian news site RPP however, has interviewed several (conveniently anonymous) Spanish and Russian scientists who claim the remains are actual those of an extraterrestrial, supported by the clearly alien skull.
Reasoning Behind Alien Skull
The reasoning behind the anonymous scientists’ claims, which are not backed by either Riquelme or his anthropological team at the Privado Ritos Andino museum in Cusco, Peru, centers on the alien-like formation of the skull.
Specifically, the group points to the triangular shape of the head, the oversized eye sockets and the fact that the head by itself is nearly the same size as the rest of the mummy’s body as proof.
It has a non-human appearance, a statement from the scientists read. The head is triangular and big, almost the same size as the boy… yes, it’s an extraterrestrial being.
Several rational, Earth-based explanations could be given for these deformities, as blogging site Tecca points out.
Several ancient cultures practiced artificial cranial distortion, which could explain the triangular shape of the skull. Medical conditions like hydrocephalus (water in the brain) meanwhile, can cause rapid, abnormal skull growth in children if left untreated.
Indiana Jones: Crystal Skull Connections
UFO enthusiasts and anonymous scientists are not the only ones intrigued by the find however. Fans of Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull note several eerie similarities between this real-life find and the fictional case of extraterrestrials vs. archaeologists in the 2008 Lucas-Spielberg film.
The alien skull was found in an area in Peru where parts of the movie were shot, but is definitely not a leftover prop from the set.
The South American find also closely resembles the crystal skull (despite being made of bone) featured in the film, and was stumbled upon by a troop of unsuspecting archaeologists.
Other strange details about the skull also make its origins seem more out-of-this-world. Riquelme told The Mail that although the skull features a soft spot called the open fontanelle seen in children less than 2 years old, the mouth contained two adult molars.
Although the assessment was superficial, it is obvious that its features do not correspond to any ethnic group in the world, he said.
