This story is GREAT. It illustrates that amateurs can make some huge gaffs. Ask the experts first before assuming something completely preposterous.
A Missouri witness reports finding a skull of an unidentified entity according to testimony from the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) witness reporting database. The witness filed their report on 6 May 2012.
“There’s not a hole lot I can say about this. I found it in a creek.”
“I have this in my home and want to have it checked for DNA.”
“I’ve had it a couple of years and would love to find out once and for all if its a real alien skull or just a cool looking rock. My opinion is that it looks like a real skull.”

Love the “hole” lot he can say about it…
Take it from a geologist. It’s a rock (left). Missouri has limestone which is exactly what this looks like – eroded limestone which often has holes, pits and rounded surfaces. The yellowish color is clay – an end product of limestone weathering (breakdown of the rock by water, time, erosion). Try searching “holey limestone” on Google image search. You get lots of this.
Fish love them.
If it looks like a rock, it’s probably not an alien skull. But this is actually a quite common claim. Iron concretions have been mistaken for ancient human remains. I’ll show you why. I have an alien skull in my own possession. Wanna see?
THIS, my friends, is an ALIEN SKULL! Yeah, mine rocks. Literally! (It was found in a coal mine.)
Somedays, I pity MUFON for having to take such a report. In fact, most days I do.
