"Creature" filmed in Brazilian rainforest

Posted on Saturday, 22 October, 2011 | Comment icon 67 comments | News tip by: Dan Dare

Michael Cohen has obtained footage by two tourists showing a strange creature standing under the trees.

Filmed in the Mamaus region of the Amazon rainforest, the video shows some local children in the foreground with the unusual extra visible in the background. The footage has gained substantial interest online along with a great deal of skepticism with viewers pointing out that the creature doesn't appear to move at all the entire time.

"As biologically diverse as the Amazon is, this peculiar creature would not appear to be a natural inhabitant of the Brazilian jungle or, indeed, Earth for that matter."

It looks like one of the forest sprites (Kodama) from the animation "Princess Mononoke".

Here's a video with a similar "alien in the woods" video. Likely another hoax: They lost me at "but the possibility of an extremely clever fake can not be eliminated" I was thinking something more along the lines of "but the possibility of a poorly done fake...is pretty much a given"

I have a very similar desktop background I picked up a couple months ago. It shows basically the same picture from the object's other side. The bright light could be the flash. Comparing exact location in reverse makes me suspect this is not an alien. The background is called ""eerie forest background". I'm sure it can be found through google.

Looks ot me like the ET's head is attached to the tree. I think what you can see is that the branch is really behind the head as it appears to continue on. Here's a video with a similar "alien in the woods" video. Likely another hoax: what a poorly acted attempt at surprise at seeing what is obviously a mask Is it me or does the guy hawking the chupacabra book look like a slight chubby version of Dave Letterman
