A REMARKABLY well-preserved “mummified corpse” of a three-fingered and three-toed “being” has allegedly been unearthed in Nazca, Peru.

The discovery has been billed as “one of the most important discoveries of the 21st century” by one UFO journalist involved in a documentary about the “creature”.

However, it has already been slammed as a hoax by more sceptical researchers.

A slickly-produced mini documentary emerged claiming to show the excavation of the “mummy” from near the UNESCO World Heritage Nazca Lines site, which is a series of ancient geoglyphs in the Nazca Desert.

The footage on conspiracy theory website Gaia.com alleges it was found this spring, when Gaia filmmakers recorded researchers and scientists carrying out tests on the odd discovery.

The objects appears as a crouched mummified body of a humanoid figure with an elongated skull and three fingers on each hand and foot.
