I find it hilarious that a "zoologist" thinks it is a raccoon. So well done everyone in the thread who "thinks it is a raccoon you can now class yourself as Zoologists.. LOL



Classic scientific tactic. Means you can say "it's pretty much this" but just get away with it ifo n the very small chance it turns out to be "that". You'll very, very rarely get a scientist says something is 100% certain. I know because when I was at Uni we were encouraged to adopt this tactic; strangely enough in Zoology :P So if it comes from a scientist I tend to read it as "yeah, I reckon this is the case, but I'm just covering my bahookie...... just in case....."

Not a rat. The teeth are wrong. This has teeth along the jaw line, rats don't. They have incisors at the front, then nothing, then large grinding back teeth (something I wish people who put rats into animation and such would realise; they don't have rows of big pointed teeth!). The eyes are also too small in comparison to the head, rats have relatively large eyes.

You can rarely trust what your eyes see when it comes to something washed up on the beach. Whatever the thing you're looking at is has been swept around, gnawed on, rubbed raw by sand, and steeped in seawater for God-knows-how-long. Take the "Plesiosaur" carcasses that have been found washed up, that turned out to be basking sharks--determined through DNA testing, NOT staring at the thing and trying to come up with solutions. I agree, looking at the tail and the feet it's probably a grossly bloated rat. Also, if you look closely at the green thing in the sand next to it, that's a piece of sea glass and judging by the color it's from a ginger ale or lager bottle. That'll give us a bit of an indication of its size. In short, not very big. MAYBE the size of an obese Jack Russel terrier.

It isn't a rat. Trust me. I've owned rats for 16 years, I've post mortem'd a good deal of my own, I am familiar with what they look like from all angles, and internally, and this isn't a rat.
The hands are wrong, for one. Rats have shorter, thicker fingers, and they do not have the 'thumb' like digit this animal does. They do have a tiny little nub of a thumb, but not a clear long digit like this. Rats also have very distinct 'bumps' on the pads of their feet, they are not smooth.
It looks like you can see its 'bellybutton' for wont of a better word, or the scar where it was, similar to what you see on dogs. You do not see this on rats, theirs is not visible, even on hairless rats.

If you look at the last pic, look at the bottom jaw. See the teeth? You can ever see canine teeth in the bottom jaw. Rats don't have mouths like this. They don't have canine teeth, nor any teeth along their jaw, they just have large front incisors, and big grinding teeth at the back, too far back to see.

The eye is also not situation close enough to where the ear starts.

I believe this to be a raccoon. Its certainly not any rat species.

I've also owned Rats for most of my adult life and the teeth, tail, feet...eyes...etc are ALL wrong.  Also cannot be a pig.  HOOVES? I say it's a bloated raccoon. Nothing more, nothing less.  Really no mystery here.

I was wondering about the teeth. We had three pet rats when I was a kid, but I never looked into their mouths, haha. Thanks for giving us the details, though! I felt like I ought to be taking notes or something. =)
BTW, with your rats, have you noticed their personalities relating to yours, or that of whoever their owner is? My sister and brother and I each had one, and our respective rats took on aspects of our own personalities to the point that it was almost comical. Since all three of them did that, I wondered if that was a common feature in rats. We had a lot of different animals, and none of the others ever did this. Anyway, just curious.

I don't care what it is, poor thing, but hope someone had the decency to dispose of the corpse so it isn't still lying there.

A rodent?

I've flown from one side of this galaxy to the other. I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen anything to show me where the hell Helen of Annoy has been for the past couple of months.

Thanks CC, its a Ryder Cup thing.

Europe left America dead, unrecognisable an washed up on the beach on Sunday after almost being there themselves on Saturday.

Hang on, is this creature Jim Furyk?

Reminds me of the decayed raccoon corpse that was found and was called a cryptid, lol. Looks like a pig or something, probably a known animal that looks strange due to decay and bloating.
