Bizarre skeletal remains with just three fingers and three toes have been found in Peru alongside a nine-month-old baby mummy.

The mysterious remains have been named Maria by a research team.

Tests reportedly reveal that Maria is humanoid - because she does have 23 chromosomes - but she does have a number of things that mean she is not human.

He told Sputnik News: "Each of the little mummies has two arms, two legs, a head, a pair of eyes and a mouth.

“Tomographic scans reveal their skeletons.

“Their DNA features 23 pairs of chromosomes, just like we have.

“All the four of them are males, each with a Y-chromosome.

“Their anatomic structure is different.”

The team researching Maria's remains have been investigating since last year.

And Professor Korotkov appears to agree: "They could be extraterrestrials or bio robots.

"Maria and [baby] Vavita could have been representatives of a certain race which had possibly reached a stage of advancement much earlier than we did.

"Maybe thousands of years earlier.”
