Mysterious Creature Killed in Panama


CERRO AZUL, Panama -- It looks a bit like a small, portly alien from the movie "E.T." or Gollum's long-lost cousin, but officials haven't the slightest idea what a creature found just east of Panama City really is.

The creature was first found by four teenagers playing near a creek in the community of Cerro Azul.

According to a local TV station, Telemetro, the teenagers spotted the creature crawling out from a cave. They said it started moving toward them. Fearing for their safety, they pelted the beast with sticks and rocks.

After the barrage killed the creature, the teenagers tossed its lifeless body into the water. But they later returned to take pictures of their strange find.

Zoologists in Panama said they're not sure what the creature is, but said it resembles a dead fetus.

As soon as video of the monstrous creature was released, speculations began swirling. People said it was everything from an alien to a monster and an albino hairless sloth.

There has been no word on whether investigators will perform a DNA test on the creature to determine what exactly it is. {source, click the source to watch video!}
 So some say it could be an albino hairless sloth. What do slothes look like anyway? Check out this picture of a live sloth (a regular sloth with hair):
Sorry, couldn't find any pictures of albino hairless sloths. I guess it does slightly resemble a sloth, just bloated. Remember, they threw it in the water after beating it to death so that could explain why it appears more bloated that what you're seeing in this photo. This creature appears to have very long arms, just like the sloth.

I doubt it's an alien, as in an ET. I'd file this under cryptozoology.
I don't know if I'd call this a "hoax." How would one go about making something that looks like this? Not that it's impossible. Sure it could be a film prop or something. But if the story the teens gave is true, this must be a real creature. It does look real. Real meaning that it was once a live creature and not some stuffed doll.

As expected, some people brought up the other Montauk Monster but if you look at photos of that creature, there are some differences, like that one has what appears to be a very sharp beak. And the arms don't look similar at all.

I also read speculations online that this might be some kind of marketing ploy.  I would hate for that to be the case. I for one would SHUN a company using these tactics to sell something and I'd actually stay away from giving them money, and I encourage everyone else to.

My questions:
  • What did this creature look like when alive? I doubt it looked like the famous picture at the very top of this post.
  • How heavy was this creature? The claim these kids were able to toss it into the water.
  • How exactly did this creature move and how fast was it able to move?
  • Did this creature make any sounds (growling, hissing, howling, etc.)?
  • So this creature washed back ashore after being tossed into the water? 
  • What "body of water" is this? A river, pond, ocean, etc?
  • Where is this creature now? Who has it and what is being done to it (DNA tests, etc.)?

Weird ... the slimy beast

----------------------------------UPDATE---------------------------------

This photo shows the creature after it's been picked apart by buzzards. It was taken days after the other photos. Now we have a better look at the entire creature. I'm almost positive now that this WAS a sloth. Look at the hands and feet! Identical to sloth's claws!

In 1996, near Panama, another creature was spotted. It turned out that this was a decaying sloth. Read about it here (picture included!)
 
That poor sloth!
Did those kids really have to stone it to death?
Couldn't they turn around and run?

  1. Oh good-you had better pictures. I saw it online earlier and thought it was a tortoise without his shell, but looking at the feet--it's gotta be a sloth. Very weird, though. It reminds me of the hairless things we keep finding and calling chupacabras and Montauk monsters--are creatures suddenly losing their hair and is it all mange? Mange usually is more patchy--not total alopecia. I'm curious to hear the results. Please post it if you hear how it resolves. Interesting stuff!

  2. Yes, we are finding lots of hairless creatures!

    I will definitely post any updates as they come. Thanks for your input.

  3. I forget where I saw an update on this creature recently but they confirmed through DNA tests it was a sloth species. It could have adapted to living in cave systems which could explain the lack of hair because it was found exiting a cave when it was beaten to death by those kids. It actually was pretty sad, sloth's are super slow and harmless and these tards just beat it to death, what a bummer. Certainly nothing paranormal.

    1. Yes, you can really tell by that last photo at the end of the post, if you look at the claws.

      sad those kids stoned it to death, as if they don't know how to turn around and run :(
