Aliens, Bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster, and now goblins?
At least that is what Francisco Mayoral Flores, the mayor of Huasca de Ocampo in Mexico, is claiming.
The goblin was discovered in Santa María Regla, located northeast of Mexico City, at the site of some construction work on a derelict warehouse.
“Samples have already been taken to determine a scientific explanation,” Flores told Jam Press.
The goblin is also being referred to has a nagual, or a human being who has the power to shapeshift into an animal form.
The New York Post reports that the goblin is currently on display at the Museo de los Duendes which means, wait for it… the Goblin Museum, in Huasca de Ocampo.
“If it had been found in another municipality, it would not have been relevant,” said Flores.
“But due to the themes of goblins and the mystical here, there is a cultural and social demand to give it importance.”
The Huasca de Ocampo region is known for its lore about goblins, naguals and other mythical Mayan entities such as aluxes (mythological woodland elves).
Flores added that, regardless of what the creature actually turns out to be, “everyone can value it themselves based on their beliefs and traditions.”
This “goblin” isn’t the other otherworldly creature to have popped up in recent weeks.
Last month, villagers in Bolivia claim they witnessed a UFO landing and several miniature aliens running around before one of them died and then vanished.
Supposedly local authorities asked villagers to not speak about the alleged alien visit and the video that was taken, as they were reportedly planning to carry out an investigation.
Back in February, Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador tweeted out a photo of what he claimed was an aluxe, one of those mythological woodland elves from Mayan folklore.
