What is it?
I've seen these pictures floating around on the internet and wanted to share some of the story and my thoughts about it. I do not know who first posted the story,but here is what I have read about it.

A group of firefighters reportedly found this almost human looking body in a river in the Republic of  Paraguay, which is in South America. Reportedly the over all length of the body of the corpse is around 3 feet long, give or take.

Most people were pretty quick to point out that the unknown creature has human looking hands with four fingers and a thumb on each hand. The feet are very similar to the hands. It was stated that the firefighters first thought they have found a dead person, but upon checking it more closely realized it was no human.

Some described the head as being frog like. According to the report, a doctor examined the creature briefly and could not identify it.  Many people speculated as to what the creature was. The speculation ranged from human, to alien, to Chupacabra, to an iguana that was swollen up by decay and water. It was also reported that the creature had a tail.

Now, while I have not touched or seen the creature live and in person, I think I know what it might be. I did a search of animal types in Paraguay because I thought it resembled a monkey. The search revealed that Paraguay only has one type of monkey, the Black Howler monkey. The body size of the Howler monkey is basically the same size as the unknown creature. The hands, feet and face are also very similar. So, it is my assertion that this unknown dead creature is just a Black Howler monkey that has decomposed and lots all it's hair.

What do you think? Mystery solved?

  1. I traced these images back to late October of 2015. In a report it was said that volunteer firefighters found this body floating in water in the Parana River in Carmen Del Parana, Uruguay. The area is a fresh water river that eventually dumps out into the ocean. Authorities on scene felt this was a monkey due to the tail and shape although locals speculated this was the chupacabra or a human. The story below contains a video of the creature in the water. From this it's not hard to imagine that was in fact a howler monkey that drowned or died and ended up in the river. Story (not in English)
