His 'groundbreaking' discovery sparked a frenzy of speculation online and in his hometown of Plettenberg Bay, South Africa, where villagers hailed it as proof extra-terrestrials live among us; others said it was, at the very least, a strange cross-breed between a seal and a monkey.
Either way, they knew it would make the town rich... until the local vet revealed it was a baby baboon.
