Original Story
Tiny Humanoid Creature Found In Chile

Veterinarian Arturo Mann:
This is what a monito de monte (mountain monkey) looks like.
A specialist from the University of Santo Tomas stated that it is a monito de monte, a small mammal that lives in the Valdivian rainforest and hides during the day.
SANTIAGO, October 25: The mysterious creature which caused expectation throughout Chile and which was even reputed to be extraterrestrial in origin turned out to be a mammal known as Monito de Monte (literally, mountain monkey). This was the statement made by veterinarian and professor of the Univ. of Santo Tomas, Arturo Mann, who subjected the specimen to analysis. The specialist, who was one of the few scientists who had access to the specimen found by a family in Concepcion, stated that--based on his knowledge and publications--he can assure with a 90% certainty that the species is terrestrial in origin.
"After a preliminary analysis and without seeing it in "macro" fashion, I have concluded that it is earthly. In other words, a little animal, a mammal that presents hair, nails, fingers. It is earthly and even terrestrial, which is to say, it's not a flying animal. It shows appendages suited to walking and even for digging, with long nails. The body shows some damage, possibly from animal predation or poor care [in the handling] of this little animal.

Terra.Cl: What is it, then?

"It is a small mammal, known as a micromammal, specifically a marsupial and given the region it was found, would correspond with a high degree of certainty to a "monito del monte". To reach the conclusion that it is this "monito" or a marsupial, we are mainly based in the fact that the anterior members present five fingers with an opposable thumb. This means that the animal can grip branches using its hand. That's why it's called "monito" (little monkey).

Terra.Cl: It is commonly found in the southern area of the country?

Not very commonly. It's a hard animal to find. Possibly these people came across a moribund animal.

Terra.Cl: In this case, can we speak of a foetus or a newborn?

"It's a newborn, possibly weakened. Bear in mind that marsupials in Chile hibernate during the winter. By not having any food, they go to sleep in April or May, and in late August and September, they emerge in a lethargic, weakened state to find food. This makes them more vulnerable to attacks by other animals or to die from climactic conditions."

I am looking at the body in the picture and at the picture of the "mountain monkey" shown. Doesn't it seem as if the skull on the body isn't proper to be the skull of the marsupial shown? And doesn't it also seem that the placement of the skull on the spine of the body is incorrect for the marsupial shown? and the veterinarian is only 90% certain.
this is the original story:

Are these the same people who propose the theory that the chupacabra is a mouse? Look at the picture of that marsupial, then the picture of the "little humanoid". What's wrong with this picture? How about head size for starters? Look at the mouth and nose!!!
Some idiot "scientist" insists on finding a trivial explanation for all things and proposes some thoroughly unscientific piece of shit of an excuse of a theory and we're all supposed to buy into it because he's an "expert"? His admitted evidence is so flimsy that I resent you posting this article as some sort of QED explanation. This is a piece-of-s**t theory that I would expect from a "scientist" and nothing more!!!!

Hi im Mario. When i was visiting your site i came accros this article and started to do a little ''researching'' of my own. This is what i found: The Mountain Monkey (Dromiciops australis)´belongs to the Marsupialia in the family Microbiotheriiae and the genus Dromiciops. Then i went on in search of skull-pictures and found these:
If you look at the shape of the skull and compare it withthis picture of the skull, its almost inpossible to find similarities between the two.
As Lostonearth also comments, the placement of the skull in relation to the body (and spine) is almost 90 degrees (as you would expect in apes and humans). In picture 1 the placement of the skull is certainly NOT 90 degrees. Some might say this can occur when the muscles dry out and rotate the skull, but if you look good at picture 1 and 2 you can see that the attachment of the spine with the skull is on the back site, not directly underneath the skull!
Also the ''roundness'' of the skull does not match the rather 'flat' skull of the Mountain Monkey .
Although im not an expert in this field of science and thus i could be very, very wrong, it is my belief that the image provided is not that of a Mountain Monkey. But we also have to consider the possibility that this particular creature was born deformed. I suggest a DNA test (if possible) to make sure what this 'thing' really is.
