The remains of what appears to be a mysterious, bizarre sea creature that was found on a Spanish beach has left experts baffled.
The 4-metre-long creature, with what appear to be horns, was found decomposing on Luis Siret Beach in Villaricos, Spain leaving locals wondering if they had caught a glimpse of a mythical sea monster from the deep.
Maria Sanches of Civil Protection in Cuevas said.
“A lady found one and we helped her retrieve the rest, We have no idea what it was. It really stank. It’s very decomposed and we cannot identify what it is.”
Both experts and residents are struggling to determine what the remains actually are, with guesses ranging from everything from a relative of the Loch Ness Monster, a dinosaur or sea monster, or an oarfish.
The latest mysterious find is part of a long history of discoveries of mysterious sea creatures. The bizarre, rotting corpses are often mistakenly identified as sea monsters or dinosaurs, or even just mysterious “blobsters”.
