Here are 20 mysterious photos that cannot be explained.
1. This photo was taken in the mid 90’s in a cave in Ras al-Khaimah. The two friends who entered the cave saw a creepy creature and took a photo.

To this day, the two friends swear that what they saw was not a human body, but a scary, alien-like creature.
