Mystery hands appear in Mt Kinabalu photos

An unexplained pair of hands has appeared in photographs taken by two separate cameras in Borneo.
The peculiar disembodied hands, which have been likened to 'Thing' from the Addams Family, were picked up in images taken at the base of Mount Kinabalu in Malaysia not long after the 5.9 quake that was controversially attributed to a group of backpackers who had posed nude on the summit.

The two photographs, which show a group of men who had visited the site so that they could present donations to the Mount Kinabalu earthquake fund, were taken from two different cameras but the anomalous extra hands mysteriously showed up in both shots.

"A day after the photos were taken, a member of our group was checking the images and we were all surprised," said PKBS vice-president Samasuddin Yusop who can be seen second on the right.

"Even until today, I do not feel anything but it is my other friends who are creeped out instead."

I can see what Seeder is talking about, and looking, I think I would pose the same way, if I was that close to each other and have one arm at my back. But, the hands look a little darker then the men themselves. Then again, I guess the hands being in the shadows could do that to the color of the hands. The other thing that says is a hand resting on the back of the other guy, doesn't look like a hand.

It seems like the guy just had his hand behind his back in just the right position to create a creepy picture. From the article, the men in the picture aren't particularly upset about it, and even admit to not consciously remembering where they put their hands. Nonetheless, I think it is a cool picture.

its a cool picture indeed, but the guy isnt holding his hand on his back. The hand is clearly on his side, sorry. What the thingy on the back may be? perhaps glowes or something attached on his back that gives the illusion of a hand. But a hand is not. Im not saying its a ghost, but a optical illusion.

Don't know about disembodied hands, but Mt. Kinabalu does have some of the largest and coolest carnivorous plants on the planet like Nepenthes rajah, lowii, edwardsiana, and villosa among others.

I always knew that if entities from the paranormal tried to contact us it would be via an obscure detail in an obscure photo! It is the most obvious way of getting a message to us!Lol!
