Why wouldn't they open it? A shrivelled up monkey corpse isn't going to do anything! and anyhoo I would think they would have to take it out to determine what it actually is.

lol, the 'bomoh' or shaman as would call it, actually did opened the bottle before giving it to the museum. He read some 'mantera' and found out that the thingy can still actually moved (it is said then when u throw away thse things to the sea, most of it will die off), reclosed the lid and gave it to the museum. Latest rumor has it that the museum had cast away the bottle back into the sea, cause they were afraid of anything bad that can happen (funny u know, muslims, pray 5 times a day to only one God, are actually becoming afraid of this toyol, which is nearing to what is called as 'syirik'...

Open it. Shove a sygrine in it. Analyze the sample. They'll discover one of three things: 1 - It's a swollen, or slightly deformed human fetus thats been preserved in a jar for a couple centuries. 2 - It's a fetus of a primate of some already discovered species. 3 - It's a hoax.

yeah, I got pics. Search for 'toyol' in the picture albums, under ghost and spirit.

Oh good god man, it's a fetus of sorts. Beware, the fetus toyol might come to life and attack... I can just see it now, killer fetus on the lose "He's bad, he's black, and he wants his stem cells back.. the fetus from hell! coming to a theater near you." oh yeah and this But beware that all it takes is for you to miss one meal and it'll go delirious and certain death will befall the owner. Oh... so this is where they got the idea for Grimmlins the movie.

Oh man! Go ahead and open the darn thing! Just have some preasure suits, a locked down security room, and a few guards with .357 magnum revolvers loaded with snakeshot. Everything will be fine!... until the little bugger gets one of the guns blasts em all Experiment 626 style. Bwahahaha!
