The Naree Pon or the "Thai Tree People" are said to be small human-like creatures that grow on a specific tree in the Himmaphan Forest of Thailand. Legend says they grow from a stalk attached to their heads and form into small human-like beings with a plant-pod head and long arms and legs that only live for seven days. (Soooo... do they wiggle around, talk, eat or what? Stuck to the tree for life?????)
When scientists subjected the twin Temple bodies of the Naree Pon to an X-ray machine, they found a human skeletal system inside. Tests on the withered human-like flesh showed it to be of plant origin. Excuse me? Close examination of the head shows features that resemble plant pods and leaves. Had it been a fake, the X-ray would show a break in the neck and a fake head. The head has eyes, ears and a mouth on some kind of seed pod thing.
When Josh Gates, host of Destination Truth, showed the photos to an expert, he was mystified. He said they looked like human fetuses, but with longer arms and totally distorted heads. Perhaps a rare birth defect that was naturally aborted might be an explanation for a single anomaly, but there are TWO bodies that look quite identical. Even twins would not mutate into such identical weird beings. Their heads are just bizarre plant like composites.
If you watch the Destination Truth show (available from Netflix) and pause the video and examine the creature on a large HD TV, you can see that the creatures are real and not glued together composites of some sort. The story of them being a tree pod are more bizarre than the bodies themselves. Maybe in Thailand the old cabbage patch story of where babies come from was not such a big lie after all!
My friends always say about Bigfoot, "Show me a body!" Well, my friends, with the Naree Pon, you get two!
