A TikToker has claimed to have found a 'unicorn skull' while 'digging in a garden', although some social media users remain sceptical about the discovery, arguing it may have just been bought online.
TikTok user @180flix shared a video four days ago, captioning the post: "Look what we found!"
In the clip they claim: "We found a unicorn skull while digging in a garden."
The footage shows them brushing dirt off the skull to reveal a large horn on top of the head, before adding: "We found an arrow head through the eye socket. This means it could be up to 60,000 years old!"
The video has been viewed more than 16 million times, with three million likes and 96,000 comments.
However, while some people were impressed by the supposedly ancient discovery, others aren't quite so convinced, arguing that the item is likely a fake.
Another user called @connsully shared his 'analysis' of the clip in their own video, having done a little digging of his own online.
He says: "At first I thought, 'No way this could be real', but then I read this comment with 12,000 likes: 'Just because you haven't seen one with your own eyes, doesn't mean they haven't or don't exist'.
"So I decided to do a little bit more research and they were right. The unicorn skull is so abundant you can get one for $35 off of Amazon."
Over on Twitter, people were equally dubious, with some questioning the condition of the relic.
One tweeted: "So this person on TikTok dug up a '60,000 year old unicorn skull' that looked in way too good shape to be even remotely that old btw lmao and the comments are Christians saying that unicorns are in the Bible so they must have existed... as if the Bible isn't a fictional work..."
Another said: "I know I did not just see a TikTok of someone finding a unicorn skeleton... 2021 just started, we don't have time for this right now."
But the saga doesn't end there, as the original poster then shared another video, implying that the FBI had become involved.
In the second post, @180flix said: "Around 24 hours later this showed up."
They then cut to a screenshot from their phone, which showed a WiFfi network named 'FBI surveillance van #12'.
I mean, we all know how easy it is to change the name of a network to something juvenile and hilarious, and I'm hoping the FBI would know to be a little more covert than that... But stranger things have happened, I guess.
@180flix also told 'the people who say it's off of Amazon' to 'stick around', which presumably means there's more intel coming.
