Mystery of 'alien' mummies found at airport in Peru has been solved

Scientists have conducted a new analysis of the pint-sized mummies to determine what they are made of.
The alleged extraterrestrials made headline news when they mysteriously showed up at the Lima airport offices of courier DHL in a cardboard box back in October of last year.

At the time, the discovery prompted speculation that these could be the mummified remains of alien entities that had been buried long ago and then later excavated at an archaeological site in Peru.

Their peculiar proportions and tiny size made them particularly perplexing.

Now, though, a new scientific analysis of the alleged aliens has revealed that they are in fact little more than dolls created from a combination of human and animal skeletal remains.
"They're not extraterrestrials," said archaeologist Flavio Estrada of Peru's Institute for Legal Medicine and Forensic Sciences. "They're dolls made from animal bones from this planet joined together with modern synthetic glue."

"It's totally a made-up story."

It's worth clarifying that these particular 'aliens' do not appear to be the same ones presented by UFO researcher Jaime Maussan at a Mexican congressional hearing last year.

That said, it's certainly possible that those were put together in a very similar way.

What's more amusing is why would they need to kidnap people and animals and take chunks from them if they are more advanced then us. With 21st Century tech all someone at a genetics lab needs is spit or a turd.

Well, from the article, the question was "what are these made of."  The average person can't tell a dog bone from a human bone (they are different in shape and size) and which particular bone you're looking at.  So you need a good forensic analysis to tell what they really are. If the answer had been something like 3-d printing, you'd want confirmation of what type of material.

with all due respect but my point is 'who really cares what they are'? they wont be from another planet is the point anyways, no worries?

Anthropologists might care what they are.  You can study a culture by what it produces.

Because if you don't know what they are, it leaves things open to a lot of hoaxes and misinformation.

I'm curious how your logic could possibly produce that certain conclusion?

simple, I know every race of alien being on this planet therefore I know for a fact they aint alien. Having said that, one of them looks like KExxqqamaVINapaping (Kevin for short) from the Pleiades- he went missing years ago. Can't be him because he lost a leg while attempting to ride Terrance the base's Chihuahua

Still just as real as any other evidence I've seen presented.
