I think it looks like a selachian shark.

I thought the one pullet up on the fishing boat has far too much flesh on the fins to be a shark?

In the link provided, it said it was a basking shark and that often times, a decaying basking shark can take on the appearance of that monster.

Ah OK I always thought it was a whale.

The Qindao skeleton was also not a basking shark. Naturally the skull is similiar in its overall appearance due to the fact that it was a shark - I repeat once again for those who are not able to read the postings others made before in this thread - A SHARK. However in detail the morphology of this skull is very different from the skull of a basking shark. Just for example the epiphyseal foramen is not housed in a turrent-like rising, the dorsolateral cartilages (especially the median) are completley different! Here's the skull of a basking shark: http://www.wdc-jp.bi...0/402/40212.pdf and - if available for you - I also explained some of the morphology in the first issue of the Journal of Cryptozoology (Hemmler, M. (2012). Hunda 'Scapasaurus' Photo (Re)Discovered, with Explanations of Descriptive Trends in Relation to Pseudoplesiosaurs. Journal of Cryptozoology, 1, 25–43).

It's a shark. Pictures prove it.

Looks very close in my opinion.

Anyway.... CLEARLY a shark.

Looking at what others have posted, I think it's a shark.

I'm wondering what a dragon skeleton would be doing in the ocean anyways. Was it flying then it fell? I don't think dragons live in the ocean.

This kind of reminds me of that one time those Japanese fishermen fished up a carcass that looked like a plesiosuar corpse before they threw it back into the ocean.

Besides the fact that dragons as described in the general myths don't actually exist..........?

Just pointing out thing that show this is pretty much a hoax. If the conditions of this skeleton don't really match the beliefs and reports of supposed dragons, then it would be more likely to be a fake because it wouldn't make sense.

Just goes to show if you want to hoax, at least do it accurately.

If I remember right, the Chinese dragons were evem more likely to live in a lake, river or the ocean then they were to live in the sky or on the land. So finding a Chinese dragon in the ocean would not be surprising.

Oh, really? I didn't know that. I retract my earlier statement, then.

I'm actually now wondering where are the wing and limb bones on this skeleton.

Almost all oriental dragons flew, but had not wings. The winged fire breathing dragon is a European creature.

Sharks only have two bones,jaw bones.The rest is cartilage.A shark could not and has never possessed a skull.Although the tail appears to have a shark shape to it.

I do agree that this is not a dragon.
