Did anthropologists really discover an alien mummy in Peru?
Strangely-shaped skull could be (but probably isn't) extraterrestrial in origin

Scientists have posited that we might be able to spot alien civilizations on other planets by the light of their cities, but did aliens find their way to Peru, centuries ago? That's the question being asked by scientists and ET enthusiasts around the world after photographs have come to light of a mummy with a huge, strangely-shaped head.
An anthropology team led by Renato Davila Riquelme from the Privado Ritos Andinos museum in Cusco, Peru, discovered the remains, and initially reported that they were those of a human child, given that they were only 20 inches long. However, an unspecified group of Spanish and Russian doctors apparently examined the remains and have declared them extraterrestrial in origin. Their main reasoning seems to be the triangular shape of the head, oversized eye sockets, and the fact that the head itself is almost the same size as the rest of the body.
Of course, there could be a perfectly rational, Earth-based explanation for the oddly-shaped creature. Many cultures have performed artificial cranial distortion for various religious or cultural reasons, and medical conditions such as hydrocephalus, if left untreated, can also cause deformities in the skulls of young children. Four out of five unnamed scientists agree, though: aliens are much more interesting!
