May says he’d be perfectly happy to allow scientists to examine his Bigfoot skull, but he wouldn’t want it to fall into someone’s hands “where it just sort of disappears.”
“I wouldn’t mind, I just don’t want to get it lost,” he said.
The Standard-Examiner sent a photo of the rock to several paleontologists for an initial opinion on May’s find.
In an email interview, paleontologist Kenneth Carpenter said what May found is interesting, but it definitely is not a fossilized skull.
“I’ll admit that it is the most head-like rock I have seen,” said Carpenter, director and curator of paleontology at Utah State University Eastern’s Prehistoric Museum in Price. “However, there is no doubt that the object is a natural phenomenon. Basically, it is just the odd way the rock has weathered.”
Carpenter said there are several key features of a real skull that are missing — eye socket, nose opening, and teeth among them.
