The alleged mummified dead alien and (inset) an X-ray of the being.
Researchers investigating the reported discovery of several alleged mummified aliens took samples from what they claim is an infant being tested for DNA and carbon dating.
The “three-fingered creature” was also X-rayed and will undergo CAT scans, the researchers say.
Last month, Express.co.uk revealed the first pictures of what is alleged to be a secret tomb where several mummified aliens were found in Peru.
Gaia.com, the paranormal website behind the outlandish claims, says that at least five mummified aliens have been found buried in Nazca, Peru.
The website has released a fifth video about the “baby” that was found in the tomb in a face-down foetal position, and insists a genuine investigation is underway, despite scientists rounding on the online paranormal site amid claims it is pushing a massive elaborate hoax.The latest disclosure came after scientists and the Peruvian World Congress on Mummy Studies released statements saying they believed the creatures were hoaxes that had been made using real human remains, before demanding an official inquiry into whether any archaeological crimes had been committed.Mexican journalist Jamie Maussan, who is leading the probe in the Gaia.com videos, has previously investigated a series of alleged alien body discoveries which turned out to be hoaxes.However, the outlandish claims continue to be made by the Gaia.com team.
