Authorities claimed the bodies were uncovered in Peru

Mexican authorities have claimed that the DNA of a pair of recently discovered "aliens" is not human but of an "unknown species".

Controversial UFO enthusiast and journalist Jaime Maussan has held court several times to prove the mummified remains found in Peru are extra-terrestrial life.

Maussan brought in a team of researchers who performed a DNA analysis on the alleged alien figures and stated that their research showed 30 per cent of their genetic makeup was "not from any known species".

He stated that the figures were "authentic", comprising a single skeleton and the other 70 per cent not specified.

Maussan said that the two corpses have sturdy bones, are toothless, and contain implants made of the soft, slivery-white metal cadmium and the bluish-white metal osmium.

He told congress: "This is the first time extra-terrestrial life has been presented in this manner.

"We have a clear example of non-human specimens unrelated to any known species on our planet.

"The public has the right to know about non-human technology and beings. This reality unites humanity rather than dividing us. We are not alone in this vast universe; we should embrace this truth."

The figures underwent carbon dating by the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), which determined the bodies had three-fingered hands, no teeth and were more than 1,000 years old, Maussan claimed.

Speaking to the Mexican Congress in September, he said: "These specimens are not part of our terrestrial evolution [...] These aren't beings that were found after a UFO wreckage.

"Whether they are aliens or not, we don't know, but they were intelligent and they lived with us. They should rewrite history.

"We are not alone in this vast universe; we should embrace this reality."

An 'alien'

The 'aliens' could have been made for a ritual


Will Galison - a close friend of the archaeologist who first analyzed the supposed "aliens" - said he believes the "corpses" are dummies that are 1,000 years old.

Galison said they may have been made from animal remains a millennia ago, possibly for ritual purposes, with the heads bearing a "remarkable similarity" to alpaca skulls.

Anthropologist Roger Zuniga of San Luis Gonzaga National University in Ica, Peru said on Tuesday: "There was absolutely no human intervention in the physical and biological formation of these beings."

The letter made clear that the team was not implying the bodies were "extra-terrestrial" but did not answer where the remains originated.
