That was a creepy video, at first I thought it looked like a miniature person! I agree with the others who said it looks like a monkey. How sad if it is, but I wonder, due to the eating of the other animals, what it really is. Hope they follow up on this story.

Hello to every one...Well i've thinking some things and i wonder why they use bear traps for rats, and i dont have a clear answer except they are available cheap. And im sure there are no monkeys in Mexico valley, so if they are monkeys, they musta have escaped from a zoo or circus. They said that the mummyfied aspect is related to the rat poison, whis mummifies rats.
I do insist in dna tests...

I don't know if this helps, and feel free to disregard me, but it looks hardened, like how a lizard or frog hardens when they've been dead for a week or so. I've always thought of the Chupacabra as lizard like, because my friend allegedly saw one.

Yeah, I'd have to say either an established species of monkey, or perhaps even a new one.

It's sad to understand that the creature was trapped in the fashion it was, however a curator of rare predatory birds that gets attacked by a predatory entity that actually killed and ate one definitely merits the right to try protecting those animals from a harm they suspected as rats, but instead turned out to be hominid.

So, those that want to shed tears feel free to do so, but try to remember that these people set the traps to protect other animals, not to intentionally harm them.

It's interesting to note that if this is indeed a species of monkey that they caught, it will make history as a fairly unafraid and predatory one, as it may have in fact been the animal that fought with and actually killed the eagle, then returned later to finish it's half eaten meal.

I'll agree

But let us also remember that the birds the man is setting traps to protect would be far better off in the wild. They are only captive because of man, and if they encountered any danger to their species in the wild, that too would most likely be a threat of man. So lets not for one moment even consider the idea that man is not the bad guy on planet Earth.

OK - this is possibly silly question time from me, but seeing as I didn't watch the whole thing, and the fact I don't speak Spanish either, maybe someone can clarify something for me please?

So, the trap was set up, as per usual. Does anyone mention how long the trap was set out for? And how long it took for them to discover this little monkey-like creature? My guess is that they found it as it is in the video? (Bones et all).

I'm just wondering, because (now don't laugh at me - too much
), how long would it take for something that size to decompose?
Am I over-analysing the situation?

It's a valid question, and one that I had wondered about also. Looking at it you would think it was a trap that they must have found some months, even years after it was placed. That amount of de-composition does not happen over night or in 1 week.

Ahhah, thanks for backing that up. We need our Spanish speaking buddy on this thread to clarify what the Gent was saying, if there's any mention of time scale.

(Oh, how I feel like a right little paranormal investigator right now, hehe!) Lame, I knows

I agree that it's probably a (lesser) primate. There are several candidates such as

1. Douc Langurs



Although it's not native to South America.

2. It's most probably one of the howler monkeys such as the Mexican Howling Monkey.



3. Another suspect is a Weeper Capuchin (although the Capchin's canines are a tad too long in comparison).



4. The skull reminds me of a Pygmy Marmoset's skull, but the pygmy marmoset is a lot smaller than the animal in question. (An adult marmoset has longer canines.)



The Owl Monkey is not a likely suspect as it has huge eye sockets which don’t exactly match this animal.



I'm sure a proper biologist will be able to identify it in no time after close inspection of the actual carcass.

Hello to all.
In the video the veterinarians at the farm said they use the traps in a routine basis because of the rats, but ehy dont specify the time between the day they set the trap end when they do revised it.
And if the monkey theory is correct, it must have been some monkeys escaped from somwhere, because in this area there are no native monkeys.

I dunno this looks alot like a hoax, the neck is too straight and upright. Basically the whole body looks a little too photogenic.

wow thats weird i think it looks like the remains of a small house mouse sized alien which is weird if anyone else noticed there was something messed up with the back legs and it had a tail kind of reminded me of a monkey but wouldnt the veternarian that was talking have identified it as a species of monkey so that kind of confuses me
so i dont know but its creepy maybe its a hoax but they probably would have noticed if it was

i dont know

Well done!


Indeed, no monkey. Maybe an Intergalactic Monkey, though.

Looks kind of like a hoax, as if it seems to be made out of rubber, it also seems to be in a weird pose as if it was set up for the camera.

The page shows:

"El vídeo que intentas ver no existe o ha sido borrado de TU.Tv.

Any site mirroring that video on the net?

I just watched Monster Quest on the History Channel which featured this small monkey like creature. They cut off the tip of the tail and ran DNA testing which came up with NO matches, not a single one. They believe that it may be a species in evolutionary transition or a completely new species as it appears to most of us to look like a small monkey but does not have the same characteristics i.e. smaller feet, different eye socket size. The biggie is that there were no DNA matches, none! Very interesting, I would suggest watching that episode.

Ok, I want to see this thing because I wasn't coming to ATS when the thread was started, but all the links in the thread are broken! Anyone know where I can see it?
