Mystery Creature Found in Panama (PHOTOS)

mystery creature found in panama

A hairless mystery creature, found and beaten to death by a group of teenagers in Panama, is drawing comparisons to the Montauk monster, which washed up on a Long Island, New York, beach last year.

The four teens, ages 14 to 16, claim they were playing near a cave at Jet Blue Hill in Cerro Azul on Saturday, when the terrifying creature crawled out and came towards them. Fearing for their safety, they attacked the beast, beating it to death with sticks, and throwing the lifeless body into a pool of water.

They later returned to take pictures of the mystery creature's body, which were then posted on the website of Central America's Telemetro television station.

A hooked claw can be seen in one of the photos, suggesting it may be a sloth that lost its hair. Others speculate it was a creature from another planet. I suggest that like the Bigfoot found last year, it is just another hoax.

UPDATE:  Apparently I was wrong to assume this is a hoax.  Zoologists in Panama are trying to identify the creature, so I guess that means they have the body.  More on this story in CNN video below.

    i cant believe that there are a different creature


    This is stupid! I JUST WANNA KNOW WHAT IT IS? A hoax of some kind probably!

    1. Why did them stupid kids think it was a good idea..... to pick up some rocks.... and start throwing them at it... i mean theres programs like like Pokemon and Digimon out there, you dont see ash picking up rocks and throwing them at a new pokemon do you!!!

    2. If the kids was scared of it and killed it with rocks... where the hell did they puck up the courage.......... to touch it.......... and throw it in the water.......... haha bullshit! lol


    Poor thing! How could they kill it? Look at it, what kind of damage could it do, it doesn't even have teeth! I almost cried when I saw this, humans are killing everything that's mythical and unknown.


    If that thing walked out at me when i was chilling at a creek, Id be scared as hell and probably do the same thing. Its not like they wanted to kill it. Its a natural reaction. Fight or Flight


    People need to learn kindness. Fear and killing others who are not the same exact as you is what leads to so much murder throughout the world. Why kill this little creature? It was a life. He was likely just curious about the kids.


    maybe a lost dino or a hairless animal



    So what's the word on this? What is it? We're going on a year and still no word as to what it is??


    it could be a hoax becouse its the first thing ever to been sighted in hundreds of years plus theres no wounds on the body not even blunt force is shown


    I just wanted to thank you very much for this indepth article. I have already bookmarked your site, when I have more free time I am going to have to do some further reading. Well back to my dreaming of Panama or back to the books - I wonder which one is going to win out. :)
