Micro Skeleton Found

Post by Your Mom on Fri May 22, 2015 9:54 pm

I found this on a Brazilian site, but can't seem to find any links in English. If you look at the pic, you'll notice it is being compared in size to a British 5p coin. I have no way to gauge the veracity of these pics, but the bones look real enough. It can't be a foetus as the fontanelle (soft spots) on a baby's head only close at between 7-19 months and this skull looks completely fused. But just look at the number of vertebrae.

I'm reminded of the tiny "alien" skeleton found in Atacama in Chile, but this looks completely human.

My first thought was small bird skeleton, but birds have eyes on the sides of their heads, not in the front. Interesting...

Funny you should say bird. I've just found a link in English and it has this to say of the bones:
Hosts of The Mystic Menagerie, a UK based podcast were puzzled when a regular listener sent in a series of images he claims were found in a protected bird of prey next in Cornwall.

The podcast covers topics such as strange stories, folklore and the paranormal. The listener, who wishes to remain anonymous, thought that the hosts would be the ideal recipients of the images and be less likely to ridicule his disturbing discovery.

An initial private message was received via Twitter asking for an e-mail address where the images could be sent and within a few hours the strange photographs landing in the The Mystic Menagerie inbox.

The series of images show a miniature partial human skeleton. The skull, spine and ribs are present although the limbs, lower jaw and pelvis are missing. A five pence piece is also present in the images to give an indication of scale. If these are genuine then this is the smallest humanoid remains ever discovered, but how did they appear in a falcon nest?

The mysterious man who sent in the images works for a birds of prey rescue centre in Cornwall. As well as caring for sick and injured birds part of this gentleman’s job is to monitor nests of protected species for annual breeding numbers as well as preventing eggs from being stolen by collectors. During a routine check he climbed a tall tree to inspect the nest when something amongst the twigs and feathers caught his eye.

The bones were gathered up and placed in a small sample bag and taken back to the rescue centre for closer examination. Cornish folklore is rife with tales of pixies who are said to live on the high moorland areas and having grown up in the locale of Dartmoor the man could only assume that what he had found were the remains of a pixie (or piskie).

The show's host Dan Baines was responsible for the Mummified Fairy Hoax back in 2007 and is also a prop designer so he knows a fake when he sees one however, this one leaves him stumped. Co-host Freddie Valentine has been in regular contact with the owner of the images and the remains and sees no reason why he would create a hoax as he wishes to remain anonymous and will give no indication of where he works or where he found them.

Due to the colour of the skeleton it has been hypothesised that the remains are a number of years old. Falcons return to the same nest year after year so it could be assumed that a few years ago the falcon returned from a hunt with something more interesting than your standard mouse.

Dan and Freddie are currently in discussions to see if they can travel to see the remains in order to certain if they are genuine or not. In the meantime the man has agreed to record a short video of the bones to at least prove the images are not Photoshopped in any way.

I'd say not as outlined in my OP.

And what would a foetus be doing in a bird's nest?

The raw story can be found here on a podcast from about 18 minutes.

It can't be a human fetus because, like Mom said, the skull bones are fused and skull bones in a human don't fully fuse until about 18 months.

As growth and ossification progress, the connective tissue of the fontanelles is invaded and replaced by bone creating sutures. The five sutures are the two squamous, one coronal, one lambdoid, and one sagittal sutures. The posterior fontanel usually closes by eight weeks, but the anterior fontanel can remain open up to eighteen months. The anterior fontanel is located at the junction of the frontal and parietal bones; it is a "soft spot" on a baby's forehead. Careful observation will show that you can count a baby's heart rate by observing his or her pulse pulsing softly through the anterior fontanel.

Sarah - I looked for something a couple days ago and found nothing new as well as just now. Couple, nor many references to elongated miniature skeletons - Atacama skeleton which is not this.

Smile Still has the eww factor though....
