Researcher Suggests it Could be an ‘Alien’ or ‘Tiny Cave-Dwelling Humanoid’ from 800 Years Ago ‎ ‎

The alleged extraterrestrial has an elongated skull, slanted eyes, and an unusual number of ribs, at least according to the reporter, who stated that the body seemed to have 10 ribs on each side of the body compared to a human’s typical 12.

Images of the deceased being were delivered by an anonymous source via WhatsApp message to that reporter, Josep Guijarro, who said the mummy may have originated in ‘el cerro de los enanos’ (‘the Hill of the Dwarves’) in remote Colombia.

Signs of an umbilical cord, usually found on terrestrial mammals, have fueled speculation that the ‘alien’ mummy could be related to the infamous remains of an alleged cave-dwelling ‘tiny humanoid’ discovered in Peru.

Skeptical scientists, however, have maintained that both specimens are likely stillborn and all-to-human fetal remains.

But the new find may keep hope alive for frustrated ‘ancient alien’ hunters, following a recent blistering analysis by forensic archaeologists who concluded that the ‘alien mummies’ presented before Mexico’s Congress last September were man-made.

The macabre new pH๏τos were sent to Guijarro, who hosted National Radio of Spain’s ‘Enigmes i Misteris’ for a decade, and is now a UFO researcher and author.

While the source claimed the eerie fetal remains were found in Colombia, Guijarro shared in an X post: ‘I can’t know exactly because I lack verifiable data.’

The veteran journalist also noted, in his formal release of this pH๏τographic evidence, that he personally preferred to remain agnostic on the possible ‘alien’ origin of the mummified remains, citing fetal size and mammal-like umbilical cord.

‘I am sure that someone in Mexico would have already given it the label ‘alien,” Guijarro wrote at espaciomisterio last week: an apparent dig at journalist Jaime Maussan, who brought multiple ‘alien mummies’ to Mexico’s Congress last year.

‘In my case,’ Guijarro added, ‘I prefer to be more cautious.’

The Spanish public radio veteran did venture to suggest that the specimen might be related to ‘Ata,’ an infamous, six-inch ‘alien’-like corpse unearthed in Chile in 2003.

But this caution with his own tentative ideas hasn’t stopped spectators on social media from weighing in more definitively on the new ‘alien’ corpse mystery.

‘It is very similar to the Atacama being,’ one local commented. ‘Surely it’s an intraterrestrial species that still lives among us?’

‘It is the same as the one [‘Ata’] found in Atacama,’ another, named Erik, stated.

‘We look forward to receiving more information,’ a third, Ariel chimed in.

Last fall, Barcelona-based entrepreneur and UFO hunter Ramón Navia-Osorio Villar, who had purchased ‘Ata’ from a treasure hunter, stunned Spanish television with his theory that the remains were evidence of a legendary race of tiny humanoids.

‘They were very small people who lived in caves and only came out at night,’ Navia-Osorio told the hosts of Cuarto Milenio, ‘hence its strange almond-shaped eyes.’

‘A native friend from the Aymara tribe told me that these beings used to live with their ancestors before the Spanish settlers arrived,’ Navia-Osorio said.

The ex-Air Force security officer said he investigated two sightings of a 100-yard UFO witnessed by Boeing contractors and Air Force police on October 14, 2003. There’s ‘at least 80 people that know this happened,’ the USAF vet., Jeff Nuccetelli, told the Merged podcast. As he recalled the eyewitnesses reactions, ‘They’re scared. Everyone’s freaked out’

Guijarro expressed an openness to Navia-Osorio’s notion that the skeleton may not be alien, but a member of this ancient, tiny race of people — whom local lore alleges once co-existed with the Aymara people of the Andes mountain range hundreds if not thousands of years ago.

‘The researcher Gilda Mora, from Colombia, said that she had news of these beings since the times of the Spanish conquest,’ Guijarro wrote.

‘Even today,’ he said, citing Mora’s research, ‘there were references to them in a place called ‘El cerro de los enanos,’ (‘the Hill of the Dwarves’) in Colombia, which is very difficult to access.’

Sightings and tales of tiny ‘los enanos’ date back over 800 years, to the indigenous Aymara communities of these high-alтιтude regions in Peru, Colombia, Bolivia and Argentina.

The apparent bony lump on top of the mummy’s head, Guijarro noted, appeared to be evidence of a mammal fetus with some kind of genetic malformation, making an extraterrestrial hypothesis less likely, he suggested.

But one expert told last November that this theory, at least for the 2003 Atacama mummy, was ‘absurd.’

Professor Siân Halcrow, a biological anthropologist at New Zealand’s University of Otago, told that ‘Ata’ matches the profile of an ordinary, perfectly normal, human fetal skeleton.

Any theories to the contrary, she said, were ‘not based on scientific evidence, or just knowledge of normal anatomical development of babies.’

Alongside archaeologists from Stockholm University in Sweden, anatomical experts from Stony Brook medical school in the US, and others, Halcrow published an analysis in 2018 criticizing both Ata’s ‘alien’ believers and skeptics alike.

‘We estimated the length of the femur, and we estimated that the fetus would have been about 15 weeks in-utero gestation,’ Halcrow explained to, ‘so very premature.’

Based on Halcrow and her co-authors’ ᴀssessment, the skeleton likely belonged to the fetus of a premature infant that died less than four months into pregnancy.

Halcrow’s team even found new evidence contradicting the all-too human mutations and deformities claimed by other skeptical researchers, who had been searching for their own terrestrial explanation for the mummy’s unique features.

But, according to Halcrow’s analysis, no mutations or deformities were present — only the expected wear and decay that would occur to a tiny, still-born fetus as it dried to the point of full desiccation in the high-alтιтude of the Atacama desert.

But, even with these results, ‘Ata’ fared better under scrutiny than the so-called ‘alien’ mummies presented before Mexico’s Congress last September.


Forensic scientists in Peru revealed this January that the public had been duped, declaring that two near-identical figures seized by customs agents in a shipment destined for Mexico were nothing more than ‘dolls.’

On January 12, authorities in Lima held a press conference in which its government’s scientists firmly rained on the ET-lovers’ parade.

Speaking on the two figures seized by customs authorities in October, lead forensic expert Flavio Estrada said flatly: ‘They are not extraterrestrials, they are not intraterrestrials, they are not a new species, they are not hybrids.’

Estrada explained his team of experts from the Legal Medicine and Forensic Sciences Insтιтute had painstakingly analyzed the figures and concluded they were simply dolls that had been pieced together with paper, glue and metal over a frame composed of human and animal bones.

‘The conclusion is simple: they are dolls,’ Estrada continued, ‘ᴀssembled with bones of animals from this planet, with modern synthetic glues, therefore they were not ᴀssembled during pre-Hispanic times.’
