Ancient Alien body found - Peru

ANDAHUAYLILLAS, Peru - Peruvian anthropologist Renato Davila Riquelme has discovered the remains of an unidentified creature with a "triangle shaped" mummified elongated skull nearly as large as its 20-inch-tall body in the city of Andahuaylillas in the southern province of Quispicanchi.

The discovery has been creating quite a buzz, and according to Peruvian news site RPP several anonymous Spanish and Russian anthropologists claiming that it cannot possibly belong to any human ethnic groups on earth and thus has come from another planet.

Similar to most ‘evidence’ of outer space species occurrence on Earth, the ‘alien skull’ is extremely humanoid in its resent looks, with standard human-esque features aside from the elongated shape of the skull; while critics of UFO (Unidentified Flying Object) believers have often suggested that the possibility of alien species resemblance with humans so closely is very small.

The claims made by RPP seem totally improbable, even as the discoverer Renato Davila Riquelme has stated that the remains are those of a child. So who are these people celebrating the discovery of an ancient alien?

"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."

Critics of the “alien skull” maintain that the skull “could be that of a hydrocephalic child or a tribal member who has undergone tribal rituals involving skull modification”, an ancient practice with thousands of years of history. The ritualistic deformation normally starts just after the birth of a child till the next couple of years until the desired shape has been attained or the child rejects the apparatus used to modify the skull. It was practiced generally to signify group affiliation or to demonstrate social status.

On the other hand; THE INQUISITR, presented another theory about this discovery.

According to website: “Just like every other time an inexplicable artifact surfaces only to be later discredited in a far less high profile news story, a supposed alien skull has allegedly been located in Peru.”
