A photo of the creature
The Metepec Creature, also known as the Metepec Alien, was an alien-like creature allegedly found by a farmer in Metepec, Mexico in a trap. The farmer claimed that the creature was still alive and aggressive when he found it. UFO journalist Jaime Maussan bought the dead body of the creature from the farmer because he thought that it was an alien.
However, taxidermist Urso Moreno Ruiz confessed to having hoaxed the creature by making it from a Buffy-tufted marmoset.
The Metepec Creature is about the size of a small dog or cat. It is completely hairless and has two large bug eyes like that of well known grey aliens and has a small mouth which is barely noticeable from the picture. It has very skinny limbs that appear as if they are deprived of food and the skin on it's rib cage is a blackish color, while the area around it's head is more pinkish color which may be it's brain. It has a bony tail which may support the theory that the creature was made from a marmoset or a marmoset that had mange.
There are several explanations as to what the creature could be. Theories include:
- A hoax (confirmed)
- This legend could also be classified as an Alien Sighting.
