The skeletal remains of Andean Rituals private museum in the district of Andahuaylillas, Cuzco, corresponding to two pre-Hispanic infants undergoing
cranial deformation processes, which belies the anthropologist Renato Davila, who had noted that the mummy belonged to "beings aliens ", but later
Anthropologist Elva Torres, head of the Office of Physical Anthropology of the Regional Directorate of Culture, Cusco, reported that the first
individual corresponds to a child who has lost the lower post mortem.
The skull, said the expert-type strain shows ring and you can see traces of the deformed pads frontal and occipital bone and the marks left by
deforming the parietal bands.
In addition, the specialist explained that as a result of cranial deformation, orbital cavities were enlarged and still see part of the eyeball in the
right orbit. The infant had died after three or four years.
Regarding the cranial sutures, said they are in the process of closing, including the fontanelle, a process occurs in childhood but may last longer
depending on many factors.
According to a local newspaper, regarding the second skeleton, corresponds to a baby from zero to one years and has the incomplete skull and found
that only parietal and occipital bones articulated to the rear of the skull.
The archaeologist said Sunday that the distortion Farfan prehispanic skull were made with small tables, molds and headbands for children under three

Quoting this for people who may have missed it. Sometimes reading the whole thread before posting "ITZ AN ALIEN!!1!" helps.
For those screeching that it was a baby, and therefore could not have had teeth, dear god, google "NATAL TEETH" and learn about it. I'm almost
incredulous that you haven't heard of this. Yes, babies can be born with some, to a full set of, chompers. Not common, but it definitely
happens. I'm not even remotely sure how common being born with third molars/wisdom teeth is (let alone how common early eruption of them is) but I
would imagine that if Junior is born with teeth, Junior might pop the molars early as well.
