Tourists discover an “alien hand” on a beach in Brazil (Video)

Leticia Gomes Santiago and her boyfriend Devanir Souza were out for a walk when they found what appears to be a skeletal hand on a beach in Brazil.

They registered the hand, which appeared on a beach in Ilha Comprida, in the municipality of São Paulo, along with the slipper from Santiago as a size reference.

“We believe it is not human due to the size and number of bones,” said Santiago, according to the British newspaper Daily Mail. “What could it be?”

The first thing they thought was that it was the remains of some kind of aquatic mammal, however, due to its large size, the possibility is that it was something from another world.

“We don’t know what animal it is, and if it’s an alien, worse,” continued Santiago.

Certainly the images are impressive, as they clearly show the bones of a large hand that do not appear to belong to any known animal.

And this fact caused great commotion on social networks, where countless internet users gave their own explanations for the enigmatic discovery.

Many considered it to be the remains of an extraterrestrial being, while the most skeptical considered that it could be the branch of a tree with a curious shape or simply an assembly. But apparently there is another possibility.

The images were seen by marine biologist Eric Comin, who said the hand belonged to a cetacean, an aquatic mammal that includes whales, dolphins and porpoises.

And according to the decomposition, the marine animal died about 18 months ago.

Comin explained that while the skeletal remains appear to be extraterrestrial in origin, it appears to be a feature of the earliest ancestors of whales that walked the Earth around 50 million years ago.

Beneath the interdigital flesh of a whale or a dolphin’s fins are five ‘fingers’ or the pentadactyl limb.

This is found in humans, amphibians and a variety of other animals and demonstrates shared ancestry.

The biologist added that anyone who finds animal remains on the beach should inform the region’s environmental agency, the Cananéia Research Institute (Ipec).
