ANCIENT sculptures depicting alien-like figures have been found in a cave in Mexico, it has been claimed.
The spooky artefacts which reportedly date back thousands of years show creatures with long faces and wide eyes.
Other sculptures appear to show spaceships flying through the air.
The mystery objects are reportedly popular among locals who live near the caves in an unspecified area of Mexico, reports The Daily Star.
The clip showing the eerie pictures was uploaded to YouTube channel UFOmania yesterday and has already been viewed thousands of times.
Despite the channel not providing any background detail to when and where the sculptures were found, many online users appeared convinced by the clip.
One wrote: “Incredible evidentiary support of the fact that extraterrestrials have been engaging the human race for a very long time!”
Another said: “Best evidence yet !!!”
While others are were not so easily convinced.
One sceptical YouTuber user wrote: “If it looks too good to be true, it’s probably not.”
This week, The Sun reported that an aerospace expert claims an alien became friends with locals at a seaside resort in Italy – and even posed for a photo.
Dr Roberto Pinotti, 72, said the otherworldly visitor, who wore dark shades to cover his eyes, let two of them on board his flying saucer.
The strange encounter allegedly happened in Francavillia, on the Adriatic Coast, in October 1957.
Dr Pinotti said a group of residents were regularly visited by human-like extraterrestrials who wanted to be “friends” with mankind – just like ET in Steven Spielberg’s Close Encounter movie.
The diameter of the UFO was 24 metres, and the control cabin was 10 metres, they claimed.
The grainy black and white snaps first appeared in a book called “Sono Extraterrestri” by the Italian consul Alberto Perego in 1958 but have never been seen outside of Italy.
