I think it looks like a movie prop.

I originally thought it looked like a giant octopus laying on its side. But the tail appears to be obviously inspired by a Crocodilian.

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.

pacific rim or godzilla prop?

It is easier to claim it is paranormal than taking the hard route to find out what really happened.

I guess that tail could be a whale backbone. The thing is about the right length at around 40 feet long. I was not able to find an exact match. Would help if we knew where this was found.

There is only scant information available on the images. Here is what I found on an Iranian News site (using GoogleTranslate):

Rvznv - on 20 July 1391 at South Pars offshore naval vessels deployed in the carcase strange creatures were discovered by staff teratogenic.


گفتنی است؛ بوی تعفن بسیار عجیب این موجود تا شعاع چند صد متر قابل احساس بود.

It is a very strange smell the stench was felt to within several hundred meters.



Teratogenic - Of, relating to, or causing malformations of an embryo or fetus.  (Source)

This alt-site refers to the thing as a "Sphinx teratogenic"

Whale carcass, like others have said. Probably partly decayed which is why it looks a bit strange and smells.

Clearly the vertebra of a large mammal, certainly whale vertebra. The spineous processes floating sideways shortly under the water surface, the transverse processes extend vertical. I think we also can see the triangular, curved and tapered skull floating upside down what indicates that it is a baleen whale.

I see 3 creatures.  A long spiky tailed creature being swallowed by a Lizard type creature being eaten by a frog type creature.

Clearly a whale.

The Huffington Post reached out to Dr. Gary Griggs, director of the Institute of Marine Sciences at the University of California, Santa Cruz, for a second opinion about the floating carcass.

"From my vast knowledge and experience with whales and their skeletons, it is clearly a whale," Dr. Griggs wrote in an email to HuffPost. "Although with the condition of the body, [it's] difficult for me to determine what kind of whale."

What I find interesting is something no one seems to have touched on. There are people there who could have taken a sample from it in order for it to have been tested to determine what it is exactly. Instead they just took some pictures and posted them up with the infamous tag of "What do you think?".
