A couple from Ilha Comprida, on the coast of São Paulo, were scared to come across a mysterious bone during a walk along the beach, this Sunday morning (20), and tried to register to try to find out what it was. They posted images of what appeared to be the skeleton of a giant hand and then residents of nearby Ilha Comprida beach.

Letícia Santiago, who was walking along the beach with her boyfriend, posted photos of the discovery in a group of residents of the city, reporting that, despite looking like a human hand, the bone was too big to be a human skeleton: “Me and my boyfriend, walking along the beach, we found this ‘species’ of hand. We don’t think it can be human because of the size and number of phalanges”he wrote when sharing the record on Facebook.

After stumbling upon the mysterious object, she and her boyfriend, Devanir Souza, removed the “bones” from the strip of sand and cleaned them to record videos: “We were walking here on the beach, on Ilha Comprida, and look what we tripped over. The three tips of the fingers were up, we joked that it was a human hand, we hit some water and look what appears! It’s not human , it’s too big. Look at the size of those fingers”said Leticia.

According to a publication on the G1 news portal, a marine biologist stated that the skeleton is that of a cetacean, that is, aquatic mammals such as whales, porpoises and dolphins, which possibly died at sea. The publication also says that, due to the state of decomposition and because there are only bones, the animal must have died approximately a year and a half ago.
