News site io9 reports that Renato Davila Riquelme, an anthropologist at the Privado Ritos Andinos museum in Cusco, Peru made the discovery. The twenty-inch-tall body was originally thought to be that of a child, but Spanish and Russian doctors reportedly believe differently.

As io9 reports, Renato Davila Riquelme explained, “It has a non-human appearance because the head is triangular and big, almost the same size as the body. At first we believed it to be a child’s body until Spanish and Russian doctors came and confirmed that, yes, it’s an extraterrestrial being.”
