The seated mummy was only 14 inches tall, and had a fully formed skeleton!!!

Really ? A child or an old person with dwarfism.

Of course you can have fun imagining aliens or mysterious races if you want.

And then there is "The Starchild" skull. Malformed as it is, DNA tests proved it human, with Native American parents.

My guess would be a 'Melusine' – a fake made from various body parts either as a 'curiosity' or outright fake. There are surviving 'mermaids' and maybe a 'dragon' out there, some dating back to the 1600's.

It looks like a baby with Anencephaly to me.

BE WARNED… SOME OF THE IMAGES IN THIS GOOGLE LINK MAY SHOW STILL BORN BABIES (it is a google search for 'Anencephaly baby'):

Agree with Insomniac (dude, if that's a typical google search for you, no wonder you have insomnia).

A fake would show the metal bits used to hold it together in the X-rays.

Wow. Poor little guys. They never had a chance.

Mystery solved then.

@ Lion in the Stars, I have a friend who had an Anencephalytic baby (sadly it didn't end well) and is heavily involved with the charity so it is something I knew about and isn't something I normally search for :)

Looking at the image here, it seemed pretty obvious to me (because I was aware of the condition).

It's all pretty sad, really :(
