I think it depends, I'm not sure what that specimen is, nor the history of it. Could you tell us how you found the picture of it?

This is the "specimen" that was analyzed on Monster Hunters
This is the original "specimen". . . .
When compared we can notice there are huge differences between the two. Curiously, BOTH "specimens" have been "trapped" by a similar trap. . . . . .

What differences are you noting? I believe the top one was after the creature(or skinned monkey) was dead for awhile. I'm not sure how long, but it looks like it had been dead for quite some time. The body structures appear similar or the same. They could have done a heck of a better job of preserving it though.
Watched the MonsterQuest ep a few days ago on youtube. I don't see why MonsterQuest related this creature to the flying humanoids. It appears to have an earthly origin. Also this creature didn't match the other reports and showed no signs of being able to fly. To me, assuming it isn't just a skinned monkey(have no experience in that area), it appears to be just a very odd new species of primate or something similar. If this isn't a hoax, I can't believe they were stupid enough to kill this poor creature . I hope MonsterQuest wasn't misleading us about the dna and other results. Would be a very interesting new species indeed.
since Maussan is involved in this case (not being a credible researcher, IMO) I have my doubts about it being real.

The Alien skeleton specimen that aired on History Channel's Monster Quest 29-7-2009 reminds me of an encounter I had in 1990 next to Curtis Creek, North Carolina. I was collecting fire wood driving along the forest road for a campfire and arrived at a primitive campsite next to the roaring mountain creek 2 miles north of the Curtis Creek campground. Before unloading my gear etc., I took a nap inside my Toyota truck. I awoke hearing something scratching the rear window glass and observed a rather long slender ringed tail with a very pointy end. Having the windows up and doors locked before I took my nap, I tried to see what it was. I strained my neck up over the dashboard looking up towards the front of the cab and observed an unknown life form looking down at me. I smiled at It and said "well hello, what are you?" It smiled at me with small child like teeth and had a heart shape face, huge eyes with the upper brow forming the heart shape face, thin jaw line and tiny nose from the angle I was able to view. It also had a thin neck and a small human like chest with two nipples and tiny ribs. Its shoulders were frail/bony with thin arms and tiny hands holding onto the windshield as It peered down at me. Its skin was ashen pale gray in color and guestimating It to be about 16 inches tall, I only observed from the mid torso to It's head. It makes sense that the feet would also be human like which I found to be interesting from the media. I turned away briefly to retrieve my camera and It disappears that quickly. I unloaded my gear to set up a Daniel Boone lean-to next to Curtis Creek and did not see it again during my brief stay of 2 days. I haven't seen anything like it since, until I observed the Alien skeleton specimen from Mexico on the History Channel. Now I'm convinced that It/They do exist, possibly within the earth's sub-terrain.
