"I thought it was a dead possum until I saw it's feet."

That's what First Coast resident Paul Lovely told First Coast News about the creature he found washed up on the banks of the Saint Johns River Wednesday.

Lovely said the awful odor coming from the carcass is what caught his attention.  That is, until he saw it.Once he did, he was fascinated by the creature's odd features.

"Other than it stinking like God Almighty knows, just the weird feet, how long the legs are, and it's got a kind of weird-looking head but it could be just cause it's rotted off some, but I don't know how to explain those feet.

I think the comments on the article nailed it right away.  Its clearly a dog.  front legs have been repostitioned so that the shoulder blade is where the feet should be.

Hoax all the way. The first thing that came to mind when I saw this was P.T Barnums Fiji mermaid.

Amazing how all the flesh on the legs and feet are gone but this one mysterious piece remains on all four limbs? Hiding the joint connection more than likely so you cant see the hoax right away.

Posted 27 March 2012 - 02:09 PM

I dont think it looks real ...
The fur bits at the joints cover any articulations,which is bizarre,especially on all four joints.
The flippers look plastic
The teeth look fake too.
The actual carcass looks like a dog.

Miss me?

A minimal amount of critical thought by anyone looking at it should tell you it's a hoax.

-how many examples of 'bone flippers' are there in nature?  I can't think of any off the top of my head.

-where exactly would this creature live?  Land?  Water? It doesn't seem it would do very well in either environment.

It's a perfect fit. The teeth are horse like at the front, suggesting a kind of vegetation grazer. Maybe this is a 'water horse' and paddles underwater to feed on riverweed. The three toed paddle feet seem to good to be true. The huge neck muscle looks convincing too. This fits with the thick-neck dogman/bighairyman eye-witness accounts. If it's a fake, it's an *extremely* good one.

I'd guess a female. I bet they have trouble locating the sex organs. (The hyrax have them internally, male and female apparently)

The object, known by the locals as "Bicho Voador" (Flying Animal), or "Bicho Sugador" (Sucking Animal), has the shape of a rounded ship and attacks people in isolation.

Okay, I see the shoulder blades now and how they've been turned around. I thought the 'feet' were in plastic bags when I first looked!

Im not saying it's not part of a real carcass,but shoulder blades dont reverse themselves on their own.
Someone took it apart and put it back together,to look like something other worldly.

Miss me?
