Speaking as a person who has been on a number of archaeological and palaeontological expeditions, there is no way that this represents a site where
archaeologists have made another stunning find.
If you look at the aerial shot, you will see a distinct lack of the equipment used in archaeological excavation:
Notice that there is a lack of any type of grid system, which is always the first
thing an archaeological expedition will set up. Nor would
archaeologists allow people to simply stand around such a valuable find:
In fact, the only archaeological tools shown at all are brushes, which is not exactly conclusive proof. Also, one shot shows a person brushing dirt
away with their hand:
My archaeology professor would have eaten my heart for such an offense. If nothing else, this indicates that this is not
a site which was
discovered by archaeologists. Nor is it currently being examined by archaeologists. I also agree that the shots in which the "scientists" are
brushing the "fossil" with their brushes, that the "fossils" look far more like regular stones and not like fossilised remains at all. As has been
pointed out, it is suspicious that the whole skeleton is only showed in aerial shots. Surely a distance shot of archaeologists excavating the site
would have been more appropriate? These factors, along with the fact that no such remains have ever been found in any place at any time lead me to
consider this a fake.
Also note the similarity to the following report:
Mystery shrouds the discovery of a giant-size skeleton of a yet to be identified animal, found partly buried on the bank of Pampa Sarovar near Subir
village in Dangs district.
The skeleton was exposed after the earth on the bank of the Sarovar was washed away in the recent heavy floods in the district.
Initial reports reaching here from the Dangs said the skeleton is 15 ft long. It has long bones, long thin nails and jaws with sharp canine teeth.
When contacted, Dangs collector J Jadhav said that he visited the site along with the civil surgeon and veterinary doctors from the district
headquarters at Ahwa. Since the skeleton is partly buried in the earth, they could not identify the animal.
Meanwhile, a team of Archaeological Survey of India is expected to reach the village shortly to examine the skeleton and identify it.
The description of the creature certainly seems to match, although the location is different and the length is put at 15 ft, rather than 150ft plus.
Perhaps the video story was modelled off this report.
