Mystery Creature Found in Panama (Video, Photos)

September 20, 2009

An unidentified mystery creature was found in Panama on Saturday, leaving many wondering whether or not this is a hoax. Read more about this bizarre story here.


Four teenagers, while exploring near a cave at Jet Blue Hill in Cerro Azul, Panama, found and killed what is being called a mystery creature, for lack of a better name for it. According to the teens, who range in age from 14 – 16, the strange being crawled out of the cave right towards them. Frightened, they beat the beast to its demise with sticks, and then tossed its corpse into a pool of water.

Later on in the day they found their way back to the scene to take pictures of the strange organism, and posted them on the website of Central America’s Telemetro television station. Captured in one of the photos is a hooked claw, which leads some to believe that it was a bald sloth, others propose that it is an alien from another planet, and many skeptics, keeping true to their nature, think that it was a hoax; at least until further evidence suggesting otherwise is provided.

Currently, zoologists in Panama are attempting to identify the organism.

    It is a sloth. If you have seen them up close it is quite obviously a sloth. Panama is loaded with them. This poor creature lost its fur for some reason and was then beaten to death by four kids who should have known better. Sloths do not attack anything, they are the slowest mammal on the planet. They protect themselves by hiding.

    I think those kids set that up. they didn’t tell a adult, there were no other witnesses, they went back after throwing it in the water?

    The creature you see is not a sloth only because the neck is too long and it connects at the base unlike the creature which connects at the back of the head. On a regular sloth there is only two nasal passages and on that creature there were three. The regular sloth doesn’t have that big of a body, the body on that creature looked huge, too large for even a matured sloth. If anything like you said they skinned it the sloth’s skin would have been darker and probably had texture on it. No matter how much time it spent in the water the body wouldn’t have been that slick nor that pale. Therefore the creature you see is not a sloth. We don’t know for sure what it is, but I can assure you its not a sloth.
