Is it the beach of life – or the boneyard?
Skeleton hand appendages washed up in Brazil this week – and two of the horrifying beaches were “alien bones”.
Leticia Gomes Santiago and her boyfriend Devanir Souza were taking a romantic walk on the beach when they happened upon it.
A hand-filmed pair — found in the sand of Ilha Comprida, São Paulo State, Brazil — next to Santiago referring to the size of the flip flop, noting how “big” it was.
“We don’t think it’s human because of the size and quantity of the bones,” Santiago said. “What can be done?”
It could have been for some aquatic mammal, or for something out of this world. So, of course, Santiago sought out social media experts to uncover the truth.
“We do not know what the animal is, and if it is a stranger, even worse,” he addressed to his people.
One commentator continues to joke that the beloved extraterrestrial from Steven Spielberg’s beloved 1982 film about aliens, or perhaps belonged to a creature from prehistoric times.
“Like ET hands,” one person quipped.
“[It’s a] hands of a mermaid!” argued another.
“Maybe a dinosaur’s mouth.” someone stated.
“Get a biologist, because this is not normal,” one sane person advised – and that’s what they did.
Eric Comin, a marine biologist, believed that the superhuman hand probably belonged to a cetacean, a group of marine mammals that includes dolphins, porpoises and whales, hence the size, Jam Press reported.
His deductions were made on the first front, noting that more proof was needed to determine exactly which sea creature belonged to the mysterious flipper – although he was convinced it was probably a dolphin.
Based on the photos he’s seen alone, an assessment of the composition told the biologist that the mammal most likely died in the water 18 months ago.
People who find the remains, he added, should report it to the Canaan Research Institute (IPEC).
Odd or unknown sea animals — or parts of them — have been known to wash up on beaches, as was the case last month, when a “globster” was found on the coast of Oregon.
The mysterious creature from the depths looked like a huge ball and felt like a “rotting mammary”, according to locals who stumbled across it.
“We always prioritize leaving bones on the beach so that they don’t interfere with the cycle of nutrients in the ecosystem,” Henrique Chupill, spokesperson for IPEC, told Jam Press.
“Finally, when there is some scientific interest, we collect them for use in studies. If there are recently dead animals, we collect them to perform necropsies and determine the cause of death.
