Do aliens really exist? We’ve probably asked this question at least once in our lives. Scientists all over the world have put so much effort in discovering if other living creatures (extraterrestrial beings) are out there in the universe. However, way back in 2007, a news report came out about unknown creature lurking in our planet. Pictures of the alleged alien went viral and has netizens puzzled on what it could be.
In a small city in central Mexico, farmers claimed that they encountered an unknown creature that looks suspiciously like a baby alien. While many people believed in their testimony, others speculated that this is just another ‘alien hoax’. The witnesses stated that, at first, the looked like one of the rats they have scurrying around. Out of curiosity, they have compared it to an actual rat and were shocked to see how different it was. According to Angel Palacios Nuñez, one of the witnesses, said it had a ghastly pink color.
“It was a pallid pink color. I was scared because I didn’t know what it was, so I left it there. For a while I thought it was a mutant rat.”
This ‘baby alien’ became a trending subject matter worldwide. Many interested scientists went over to conduct a study on this creature. The DNA test results they initially gathered were questionable because scientists noticed it had characteristics composed of both lizards and humans.
However, the investigations continued. Indeed, according the report by UK’s Channel 4, they confirmed that it was a hoax. Back in December 2012, with the help of various technological equipment including 3D mapping and advanced DNA testing, they found out what this creature truly was. They discovered that the supposed ‘baby alien’ was actually a Marmoset monkey – a highly active primate who lives in forest trees.
Eventually, one of the witnesses admitted that the ‘baby alien’ was actually a made-up story. He was put through a lie-detector test to verify if he was actually telling the truth.
Up until today, researchers are open to the possibility that there may be other living creatures out there in space. As we know, scientists are hard at work to find out if we humans truly are alone in the universe. They’re even conducting research to investigate if Mars has the potential to be inhabited by humans and other creatures.
