Mysterious Tower Structure At Aamazon: Scientists Baffled

Nature around us lies with full of mystery. However, lately some scientists have discovered a mysterious tower structure in Peruvian Amazon which is surrounded by ‘picket fence.’ The structure appears to be a spire.

Graduate student Troy Alexander of Georgia Tech at first discovered the bizarre formation of this tower on the bottom of some blue tarpaulin close to the Tambopata Research Center, in southeastern Peru on June 7. Later, he found three more of the enclosures on tree trunks in the jungle. The fences were around 2 centimeters across. Since then, he started posting pictures on websites to find out their origin and any detail explaining what they are.

Although till now, no one has been able to identify the structures, but Phil Torres, a biologist  from Tambopata, posted a link on Twitter which equally baffled scientists too as they had no idea what made it or what it was. While many biologists have failed to identify the origin, some have suggested that it was created by the Urodidae family or species, known for weaving basket-like cocoons, or that it is an incomplete cocoon, or the work of a moth in the Bucculatricidae family.

However, it is expected that scientists will find the answer very soon.
