Theories  · Hoax

The Argentina Gnome was an entity (later revealed to have been a hoax) allegedly caught on film in a small town in Argentina in 2008. This creature was described as having terrorized a small town, but was later revealed to be a hoax since no one else in the village ever reported seeing anything of the kind.

Appearance[]

The entity seen in the video appears to be a small humanoid creature, approximately two feet in height. It possesses a long, pointy hat, broad shoulders, and very short legs. When moving through the tall grass, it appears to have a waddling gait, but when crossing the road later on, it walks sideways.

Possible Explanations[]

There are several explanations as to what the creature could be. Theories include:

  • Extraterrestrial
  • Hoax (confirmed)

Notable Encounters[]

There are no notable accounts that we could find.

Trivia[]

  • The leading explanation is that the creature is a trained monkey that had been dressed up.
