28. A 6-Inch Human Skeleton

Imagine discovering a 6-inch skeleton with a pointy skull that almost looks like that of a fully formed human! This is the bizarre story of Ata the skeleton, that was discovered in a village situated in the Atacama Desert in Chile. While conspiracy theorists claim the skeleton belonged to an alien, that’s not true. But the reality is still quite mind-boggling.

Researchers who analyzed the skeleton’s DNA found a total of 64 unusual mutations, including 7 genetic mutations of the bone that have never been reported collectively before. These skeletal mutations are what caused this skeleton to be formed in a manner never seen before.
