Something resembling a “tiny alien body” was found in Russia recently and has stumped scientists since its discovery.
According to local media, the body was found by two residents near the River Kovashia in Sosnovy Bor, Russia. The town was built in the 1950s as a component of Leningrad’s nuclear power plant.
Although the corpse was first believed to be a mutant chicken embryo, the theory has since been rejected, reports Daily Mail.
“It seems that this body is neither fish nor fowl — this creature has a mysterious skull, no neck and wings,” an unnamed scientist noted.
Biologist Yegow Zadereev, a researcher at the Institute of Biophysics in Krasnoyarsk, has also confessed to being stumped by the body.
“Extensive studies are needed to determine what kind of creature or organism it is,” Zadereev said.
Alien hunters are determined to prove the body’s alleged extraterrestrial origins.
Scott C Waring, editor of UFO Sightings Daily, wrote that Russian scientists are baffled by the body and are awaiting the results of further tests. Waring guessed that a DNA test will be performed on the body.
