What is the reality of this ‘thing’?
Chilean experts discovered the fossil in 2011, but failed to identify it and placed it in a national museum. According to the German magazine Focus, it was named “The Thing” because of its lack of recognition. It is about the size of a football.
However, in 2018, archaeologist Julia Clark suggested that the object was in fact the egg of a very large reptile. This assumption was rejected at the time due to the size of the object and the lack of structure in it.
