According to Wikipedia, “Pixies are mythical creatures of folklore, considered to be particularly concentrated in the high moorland areas around Devon and Cornwall, suggesting some Celtic origin for the belief and name.”
Wilmington resident James Cornan now believes he found the remains of one of those creatures high up in the Rocky Mountains. After posting a picture of what he found to Facebook earlier this week, his discovery quickly went viral.
The biggest page to share his photo was ‘Pictures in History’, a unique history and science page with over 2.5 million followers. They shared Cornan’s photo on Tuesday evening and it’s already been shared over 27,000 times and received over 2,1000 comments;
Under the photo ‘Pictures in History’ directed people to the book ‘Weird History: A Twisted Tour of America’s Bizarre Past‘ for further explanation of other pixie sightings and evidence.
His photo was also shared by the “What Now?“, “History Games“, “Beyond The Science“, and dozens of other smaller pages.
Most people who commented under the image don’t believe that it’s an actual Pixie skeleton.
One girl claims it’s a finger monkey skeleton;
While someone else believes it to be the remains of a Kebler Elf;
One man even claims it’s a picture of a 50′ tall giant holding the of an average-sized human skeleton;
What do you think the skeleton is really from?
