London: A still from a video apparently taken in Amazon jungle showing an alien-like creature standing in the jungle has raised a question that we may not be alone in the universe.
The video claimed to have been filmed by two British tourists visiting the Mamaus region of the Amazon was obtained by noted paranormal writer Michael Cohen.
While the camera is focused on some young children, seen in the distance behind them is a silvery light.
However, it is only when the eyes are diverted to the surrounding jungle does it become apparent that there is a small being standing side-on just to the right of a tree, appearing to arch its back.
While for many the images can simply be dismissed as a well-executed hoax, Cohen, who runs the noted paranormal website allnewsweb.com, suggested the photos go some way to proving the existence of aliens.
“This is highly compelling footage that will be hard to discredit,” the Daily Mail quoted him as saying.
“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 added.
Having obtained the footage, Cohen, who is well known within UFO and paranormal circles, was inundated with requests from Hollywood producers keen to use his proof.
“This footage will be used in direct collaboration with an American film and will serve to highlight this as proof of this footage’s veracity,” he added.
