Ancient mummy with elongated skull and three fingers discovered in Peru baffles experts
What do we know so far? According to a team of experts, the creature is 168cm tall with human-like features. The three extremely long fingers on each hand, the elongated cranium, as well as the lack of a nose and ears, set the being apart from ordinary humans.

If there is one thing that mainstream researchers must admit, then it’s the fact that we have absolutely no idea about the exact origin of the human race, our complete history, and the fact that humanities past is shrouded in mystery.
Proof of this was partially obtained in January of 2017 when a 3-fingered mummified hand was discovered in an abandoned Peruvian tunnel. Some believed that the ‘science fiction movie hand’ was a hoax, but researchers reported that it is biological and composed of skin and bone. X-Ray analysis showed that the mummified hand had six bones in each finger and according to initial estimates, the being to who the hand belonged to was around three meters tall. Curiously, the mummified remains were determined to be of an unknown origin, and do not belong to any three-fingered creatures discovered on Earth.
But if the above story wasn’t exciting enough there is more.

An incredible discovery was made in Nazca Peru which tells an incredible story that may even alter the story of human origins.
Nazca in Peru is famous for its enigmatic geoglyphs, etched on the dry desert floor between 500 B.C. and A.D. 500. They are considered as the most outstanding group of geoglyphs anywhere in the world and are unmatched in its quantity, size, and diversity. The concentration and juxtaposition of the lines, as well as their cultural continuity, demonstrate that this was an important and long-lasting activity, lasting approximately one thousand years.
But the Nazca lines aren’t the only mystery in that particular region in Peru.
Experts have come across the crouched remains of that appeared to be a mummified body of a humanoid being with an extremely elongated skull AND hands with only THREE fingers.
While this is probably one of the greatest mysteries from the Nazca region in recent years, many authors and researchers warn we have found ourselves in a situation where anything is possible, yet it is imperative to maintain an open, curious yet skeptical mind.
I mean, after all, you don’t come across a three fingered, elongated cranium, mummified remains every day, do you?
If we take a look back at history we will come across countless elaborate hoaxes which have caused many researchers to remain skeptical when it comes to findings like these.
So what do we know about this mysterious being?
Well, the finding was exposed to the world when Jaime Maussan—a UFO Researcher and Journalist from Mexico—introduced the mummified remains to Gaia filmmakers.
Quickly a team was formed with researchers and scientists in order to investigate the story behind the mummified being.
Gaia has posted a YouTube video discussing the discovery in which researchers suggest that analysis of the body indicates that the being may be UNIQUE to the known fossil record.
As noted by Ancient Origins, Dr. Konstantin Korotkov , a professor at Saint-Petersburg University is examining the mystery creature together with Dr. José de Jesús Zalce Benítez, a Forensic expert at the National School of Medicine of Mexico, and Natalia Zaloznaja MD Ph.D., Head of image analysis of the Medical Institute MIBS.
Initial analysis results show that the creature is 168cm tall with human-like features. However, as noted by experts, the three extremely long fingers on each hand, the elongated cranium, as well as the lack of a nose and ears, set the being apart from ordinary humans.
As noted by Dr. Korotkov in the video, we might as well be looking at ‘another creature, another humanoid’.
The mystery creature is completely covered by a whitish powder which according to experts may have been used in ancient times to preserve the mummified remains. Experts believe that the beings internal organs are well preserved as well.
Recent carbon dating samples place the creature between 245 and 410 AD.
As you are reading this, DNA sequencing of the mummified remains is already underway, and as noted by Ancient Origins, Melissa Tittl, Gaia’s Director of Original Content, says in the video that further analysis of CAT scan results is also in progress.
Furthermore, experts believe that the creatures unique appearance is real, and it is very unlikely that anyone has made changes to either the skull od hands.
As noted by Jay Weidner, Senior Director of Content for Gaia, petroglyphs located in the vicinity where the body was discovered depict a mysterious creature with THREE fingers.
The mystery remains and we look forward to learn more about the mummified remains. Are we looking at a long lost human relative? Are we looking at the remains of the ‘Gods’ that according to many ancient texts descended from the heavens in the distant past? Are we looking at a humanoid species that existed on Earth long before humans came into existence?
Countless questions, limited answers.
Stay tuned for more news.
