Scientists are baffled and conspiracy theorists are in an absolute flutter after what is believed to be an ‘a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳ corpse’ found in Russia.
The mysterious creature was found on the banks of a river near the town of Sosnovy Bor, Russia, which was built in the 1950s to serve the Leningrad nuclear power plant.
It’s elongated body and claw feet and “mysterious skull” has got U̳F̳O̳ h̳u̳n̳t̳e̳r̳s̳ excited at what could be evidence of life on other planets.
Either that or it’s a mutant chicken embryo – which is what experts first thought it might have been.
However, scientists believe that if it is a corpse, it isn’t from any known animal on the planet.
One said: “It seems that this body is neither fish nor fowl – this creature has a mysterious skull, no neck and wings.”
Experts from the Institute of Biophysics in Krasnoyarsk, where the body was taken for more tests, are equally baffled.
Biologist Yegor Zadereev said: “Extensive studies are needed to determine what kind of creature or organism it is.”
However, a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳ h̳u̳n̳t̳e̳r̳s̳ are in no doubt what it is – an e̳x̳t̳r̳a̳t̳e̳r̳r̳e̳s̳t̳r̳i̳a̳l̳.
Scott C Waring, from U̳F̳O̳ Sightings Daily, said: “This tiny a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳ body was found near a river in Russia and has no resemblance to any animal known.
“Russian scientists are confused over what it could be and said they need to wait for the results of the tests, which are probably DNA I assume.”
To be fair, the body does look a bit like the a̳l̳i̳e̳n̳s out of the Sigourney Weaver movies.
Though what it was doing poking around a nuclear power plant in the middle of Russia is anyone’s guess…
