Metepec’s Creature is quite small, about the size of a small cat or a large rabbit. It has smooth gray-white fur with a large head for its size.
The Creature appears to be quadrupedal, with dexterous front legs and a long tail. It had two forward-facing eyes, giving it stereoscopic vision and probably indicating that it had predatory habits. Its head resembles that of the well-known Gray aliens or the New Louisiana Swamp Thing, suggesting a possible connection.
Urso Ruíz, who used to set traps to feed the owners’ birds and snakes, found a small alien-like creature alive but trapped in a mousetrap. Four people who worked on the ranch, including the owner, claimed to have seen the creature live in the trap until they apparently became so afraid it might escape that they decided to kill it. Shortly after the story became public, the ranch owner died in a car fire that many believed was caused by aliens seeking revenge.
The creature was eventually sold to UFO-journalist Jaime Maussan, who tried for years to make the world believe it was a real alien.
It was revealed at ATS in 2010 www.abovetopsecret.com that Urso Ruíz, who originally found the creature, apparently confessed on an internet forum that he had rigged the whole thing. But at that time there was no scientific evidence to support his confession, so many people were still unsure if it was an alien or not, so the debate continued. Apparently, five labs around the world tried to identify the DNA, but the results were still inconclusive. One of the laboratories in Mexico stated that it could be of human origin.
Thanks to a new investigation from Channel 4 Alien Investigations that was shown last week, there is now solid scientific evidence to prove the hoax. The now-dried creature was 3D-mapped and X-rayed at Imperial College London. Experts at one of the UK’s leading forensic laboratories collected what Jaime Maussan said was the last batch of DNA samples he would allow.
First, after studying the 3D rendered model, Professor Donald Quicke identified it by its teeth as being a New World monkey from the Americas, not Africa or Asia. After studying the x-rays, he also confirmed that, due to the position of a hole at the base of the skull, it was probably an ape.
Then, during a lie detector test, Urso Ruíz claimed that he had made the creature himself. The lie detector confirmed that he was telling the truth. He said that when he worked for a zoo, they sent a monkey for taxidermy. He said because it looked interesting he put it in a trap on the ranch where he worked and the owner said he had seen it alive. The owner then took a bunch of pictures and got on his phone and started calling various people, including Jamie Maussan, saying that a live alien had been captured on his ranch.
