Close encounter witness Gary Lowrey submitted an object thought to be a claw from an alien creature that was left behind during a violent abduction attempt at his home. Mr. Lowrey has had an extensive abduction and visitation sequence, which he described on Dreamland on February 18, 2001.
Mr. Lowrey submitted the object, pictured here, to laboratory analysis. Initial findings indicated that it was covered with a layer of fungus-like material. The scanning electron microscope revealed that deeper layers of the object appeared similar to keratin, the substance that makes up claws, fingernails and similar organs in many different species.
