As biologically diverse as the Amazon is, this peculiar creature would not appear to be a natural inhabitant of the Brazilian jungle or, indeed, Earth for that matter.
At the corner of the image is a bright flash of light which is thought may be connected to the presence of the strange being.
Just leaving his craft? The lone figure appears to arch its back, perhaps stretching, as the light flashes nearby Alien environment: Children pose for the camera while, behind them, a bright light flashes (circled right) and what looks like a small being stands to the right of a tree (circled left)
The image comes from a video obtained by controversial paranormal fiction writer Michael Cohen (Allnewsweb.com) and is claimed to have been filmed by two British tourists visiting the Mamaus region of the Amazon.
Michael said: The video - snapped up by Hollywood producers for a film. This is highly compelling footage that will be hard to discredit.
"It comes from an area known for experiencing intense UFO activity. It is rather apparent that aliens are interested in this region due to its biological diversity.
'The area was also the focus of a high-level Brazilian government investigation known as Operation Prato, where the army was sent in to monitor and confirm an alien presence in the region.'
He said the Brazilian government denied there was an Operation Prato for years before conceding it did occur and released large amounts of files associated with it.
Now big question is, where is the rest of the film? Did the camera coincidentally run out of film? And why did NOBODY run toward this thing?
