Mainstream paleontologists and geologists place dinosaurs as beings that inhabited the Earth between 220 million and 65 million years ago. On the other hand, modern Homo Sapiens does not appear until 200,000 years ago.

But there is evidence that dinosaurs and humans coexisted, and the Acámbaro figures are an example of this phenomenon.


In 1944, German Waldemar Julsrud came across part of a ceramic object partially buried in the earth, near Acámbaro, in Mexico. He later claimed to have found more than 30,000 objects with the help of local peasants.

Julsrud was an expert in artifacts from ancient civilizations and owned one of the largest and most valuable collections of Chupicuaro pottery, numbering hundreds of pieces. He also had some knowledge of archeology and immediately realized that these pieces were unlike anything he had ever seen.

In addition to the strange figures, which measure from 2 centimeters to 2 meters in height, he also found musical instruments such as flutes, curious masks, tools and utensils that indicated cultural connections with Egyptians and Sumerians, as well as figurines carved from clay in different colors and humans. of different peoples: Asians, Africans, bearded Caucasians, Eskimos, Mongols and also monstrous creatures, curious mixtures of humans and animals and many others that are still inexplicable today.

What’s intriguing about the figures is that some of them appear to represent dinosaurs and humans living together.

In addition, there are also some strange figures that many people say resemble flying saucers and even aliens.


Thermoluminescence dating was used on some figures between 1969 and 1972, and the analysis resulted in an age of approximately 4,500 years, placing the artifacts at around 2,500 BC.

However, Carbon 14 dating, carried out unofficially, estimated its age at 6,000 years.

Most mainstream archaeologists dismissed the objects as fakes without any official investigation, simply claiming that thermoluminescence analysis did not meet the conditions required for dating.

Flying Saucers and Humanoids are part of the mysterious collection.

Ancient Astronaut Theorists believe the figurines may have been left behind by aliens who could have traveled back to the time of the dinosaurs or passed knowledge of these ancient creatures to the people of Central America.

Cryptozoologists claim that the figurines are evidence of a population of dinosaurs in the region, which came into contact with humans.

One of the main problems with the Acámbaro figures being considered genuine by mainstream archaeologists is the claim that few dinosaur fossils were found nearby.

Another issue raised by archaeologists is that it is not clear that they are in fact dinosaurs since many of the figures have only two legs and not the four that are normally associated with these creatures, even though it is common knowledge that there are many species of dinosaurs with two legs.

Some archaeologists have even suggested that, if the objects are genuine, they could represent stylized non-saurian animals or even mythical monsters.
