Here is a picture of the strange little thing…
|Whatever it is, it's tiny!|
Biologist Yegor Zadereev stated in a TV interview that he studied the creature but could not identify it. Some have said it is a mutant chicken embryo. Tamara, the woman who found the thing, says it is not. "It seems that this body is neither fish nor fowl - this creature has a mysterious skull, no neck and wings," one researcher said.
Other scientists besides Zadereev have looked at the thing, and they, too, cannot identify it. It is going to be sent to Moscow for further analysis.
As I noted earlier, some people think it is a mutant chicken embryo. The woman who found it insists that it is not. Other people think it is an alien or a mutation from the Leningrad Nuclear Power Plant, which opened in 1975 and has a history of accidents and spills. A month after it opened, three people were killed when it released contaminated water. In 1976 and '79, fires broke out at the plant and released contaminated water again. Accidents have also happened in 1990, 1991, 2000, 2005, and 2009.
When looking at an article on Mysterious Universe about this "strange being" earlier today I read the comments, two of which said it looked like a rodent, and one that said possibly a bat. I'm going to have to go with the rodent theory - it looks like a mouse or something that is sort-of mummified and lost part of its body and limbs.
What do you think this thing is? Is it just a mouse, or is it something unknown? Let me know in the comments!
