The Calama Creature was a humanoid cryptid seen on September 15, 1999 by a man named Enrique Fowler and his 13-year-old grandson Jean Fowler in Villa San Rafael de Calama, Chile. Enrique Fowler and his grandson, 13-year old Jean Fowler were just arriving at a location on Yerbas Buenas Street. Enrique was parking his truck, when they both suddenly noticed a strange figure standing only 4 meters in front of them. Terrified, both saw the creature clearly illuminated by the truck headlights.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
The creature was described as bipedal and only 1 meter in height, ape like in appearance, dirty gray in color, and very hairy. It had a short neck, with a long rounded torso. When first seen the creature was standing with its back to the witnesses, the creature suddenly “twisted around” making an incredible 180 degree turn with the top of its body, in order to look directly at the witnesses. The terrified witnesses could now see that the creature’s face was gray in color, with large glowing almond shaped eyes and a small mouth that kept opening and closing as if very exhausted. It appeared to have a long scraggly beard and several tufts of unruly hair hung from its head. It had very short arms, resembling that of kangaroos that he kept close to the body. Its hands had three fingers with long sharp gray colored nails. A curious feature was that the creature’s toe nails seemed to protrude and then go in again, in some type of rhythmic sequence.
Possible Explanations[edit | edit source]
There are several explanations as to what the creature could be. Theories include:
- An undiscovered species (a Cryptid)
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Enrique Fowler was so stunned that he waited nearly 15 minutes before he exited the truck.
- Both were soon struck by a severe skin allergy after the encounter. In October 31, 2000 Enrique Fowler, only 60-years old, passed away due to a massive heart attack.
