An ‘Alien’ Creature With a Slimy Pink Body Is Terrifying People
“It was dead when I found it… But what is it?” Body of Slimy Pink Creature Found in California Woman’s Backyard Leads to Frantic Speculation She’s Encountered an ‘Alien’
Photos of a slimy, pink, half-developed creature found in a woman’s backyard have sparked wild speculation about its origin.
The photo appears to have first appeared on Facebook before being reposted on Reddit, where users began a lengthy discussion of what it was.
Internet users have spent the last few days feverishly debating whether it is an “alien”, a “facehugger” or simply a partially developed animal fetus.
Photographs of the slimy-looking pink creature lead to wild speculation that it was an “alien” or “facehugger”, as popularized in Ridley Scott’s sci-fi films.
Gianna Peponis from California posted footage of the creature, stating: “I wasn’t gunna [sic] posting this but I can’t stop trying to figure out what this thing is.
“I heard something scream around 11:30 last night and went out in my side yard and found this thing.
“He was dead when I found him… Share with your friends.’
The photo was then reposted on Reddit, where many users speculated as to what it was.

One Reddit user said it was “clearly an alien”, while another said it was “definitely a facehugger”, referring to the creatures in Ridley Scott’s Alien films that latch onto victims’ faces.
User LollyMac simply wrote: “I don’t know what the **** that is. If your friend is brave enough to remove you from his property, remind him to salt the ground afterwards. Nothing good can happen there now.”
However, many other users offered more thoughtful answers.
Posting a photograph of a fully intact deer fetus for comparison, one wrote: “It’s half of a deer fetus that has been chewed up by scavengers/predators.
“For reference, here is what an intact deer fetus looks like, imagine if you cut off the hind end and part of its nose.”
Another explained: “Animals with hooves can freak out and drop a foetus, amniotic sac and all, when startled. Or maybe it was stillborn. Anyway, dinner is about mother nature tonight!”
