The skull greatly resembles an ox or an impala..

I would love if this thing had dna tests run and doesn't suddenly disappear, or get thrown back into the ocean.

  • Hey, I'm not wrong. I'm just not completely right.

It is definately a fish. The tail shows clearly that this is a upright "fish like" tail, not a fluke or flipper like a mammal would have.

And the vertebrae look like fish to me also. Sharks and other fish have those slots in the bones, while whale bones are solid. Shark vertebrae can even be made into beads for jewelry.

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.

Apparently "sea creature" in English is also "sea creature" in Chinese. Heard it twice.

Kind of looks like the skeleton of a Great White shark. The tail matches up as does the nose of hte skull.

Take away the jaws and the rest of the fins and other bits and the skull is almost the same. And look at the spines on the Great Whites tail and compare to the tail section of the monster.

Could be another shark species, but clearly is an open ocean type of shark.

As you said it could be another shark. The tail and skull structure is pretty similiar in those sharks so I would like to know a more specific detail before I agree to a Great White,Its certainly not a frilled shark btw the cranium of Chlamydoselachus africana for example is obviously very different (http://www.mlml.cals...a sp n 2009.pdf) and probably the skull of C. anguineus is it too.

This made me chuckle :P the point is we can't take away anything, only analyse it as it is. Wouldn't it be cool if it turned out dragons did exist after all? Not that they would have breathed fire but just that there would be some truth in the myth.

I agree there does appear to be holes for tusks or some kind of head gear.

African Wart Hog ....... are we getting closer? (Missing lower jaw, obviously).

Yes, the more I look at warthog skulls the more I'm convinced that's what it is ...... with the spine of something else attached and the lower jaw missing.

I was looking for a frilled shark skull online... Your Kung Fu must be better then mine. :nw:

The eye sockets of the frilled shark fit in with the "tusk holes", but the nose does not quite match. Could be a cousin species to the Frilled shark maybe?

Also from what I read, the Frilled Shark usually is less then 2 meters long, and this "dragon was almost 4 meters long.

Could be a similar shaped shark.
Bull sharks... Great White sharks... Tiger sharks... Bronze whaler... Mako... Whitetip...
http://www.dpi.nsw.g...ntifying-sharks

All reach 3.5 meters and have similar head anatomy, so it could be any large shark.

Sharks don't have skeletons... they have cartilage instead of bones, except for their jaws.
