Apparently leading the way in the discovery of mysterious creatures this year, Russia has done it again.
First there was the mysterious sea creature resembling a “furry dolphin”.
Now there is what’s described as a “mysterious skull” and is elsewhere already being dubbed an “alien”.
The bizarre looking corpse was found by Russian locals who initially through it was a mutated chicken embryo.
While photos make it appear large, it’s actually small enough to fit into a human hand.
On Sunday 30 September, in Sosnovy Bor, Russia, two residents found the creature near the banks of River Kovashi.
Some are turning to the nearness of Sosnovy Bor to the Leningrad Nuclear Power Plant as an explanation for the oddly deformed creature’s corpse.
It may also be the foetus of a creature, such as a bear, which was frozen previously in the permafrost. Which may account for its preservation, partial remains and distorted features.
Experts from the Institute of Biophysics in Krasnoyarsk, have thus far been unable to identify it.
“Extensive studies are needed to determine what kind of creature or organism it is,” said biologist Yegor Zadereev.
It is to be sent to Moscow for further testing and research.
However, there are those who believe it’s not of this world, and the Russian creature is an alien.
With website UFO Sightings Daily reporting that:
“This tiny alien 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.”
As the test results from Moscow and a more definite answer is awaited, there’s always pondering in the meantime and thereafter. Much like with one of Chekhov’s short stories.
