Zoologist Jacobo Arauz said it was likely the creature was likely to be a mutation and suggested it could be a form of sloth.

It does still have some hair on it. Look in the upper left corner of the picture, there is still hair on the lower torso.



most of the hair has fallen out due to decomposition (likely from being in water for an extended period of time).

Since it's suggested, it must be...

Any confirmation that it is actually a mutated sloth?

Yes.


an autopsy has now revealed that the purported alien was actually a species of sloth that had died and started to decay before the boys' discovery.



Panamanian officials recovered the "alien" four days after the teenagers had thrown it back into the creek.

A biopsy done at the National Environmental Authority of Panama (ANAM) concluded that the creature was a male Bradypus variegates, also known as a three-toed sloth, a common species in Central and South America.

"The sloth had severe signs of trauma on its body, as shown in the necropsy," said Melquiades Ramos, a veterinarian at the ANAM Department of Protected Areas and Wild Lives.

"From the state it is shown in the pictures, we can estimate it had been in the water for about two days before being found."

The body's unearthly appearance is the normal state for a putrefying animal immersed in water, said Maia, of the Niterói Zoo.

That's because water accelerates the loss of fur and gives the dead animal smooth and almost glowing skin, he said.

In addition, bacteria decomposing the body created gases that made the organs swell, adding to the creature's extraordinary appearance.

That's pretty damn sad if it was just a hairless sloth. Those things are harmless.

The sloth seems about right. A lot of my family hunts and it is amazing how unrecognizable some animals are when they are skinned. The first time I watched a squirrel get turned inside out of its skin it reminded me of the alien that shoots of of the guys stomach in Space Balls.

Not arguing or anything but just curious, but can sloths swim? I wouldn't think so, so i find it kinda weird that a sloth crawled out of the water and started moving towards them maybe it was already dead?
To me at first sight i kinda thought it maybe looked like a turtle with no shell and had maybe been skinned. Anyone else see what I mean? Oh and I know it's been proven and evrything just putting in my 2 cents

Actually sloths are excellent swimmers, lot faster in water than in general.
Well, maybe not a lot faster, but faster still.

This is the umpteenth time I've seen this picture with a new b.s. story.
First someone found it near Plum Island, then this?
