Marine experts have been examining a new photograph taken of an alleged sea creature off the coast of Devon.

Looks like a log. I have tracked down and spoken to both the other article originator and the lady from Brixham. The lady from Brixham has posted the following on Facebook " The accounts of the Torbay Sea creature are exciting and I have seen two turtles near Torbay too. I thought it was the monster at first. From the beach I could see a large grey hump appear each time the wave went out and what looked like two monster heads popped up occasionally a very close distance off. I scrambled round the rocks to get a better look. On closer examination the large grey hump was a not very healthy looki... [More]

here here! that is a pilot whale in that picture. Almost. It's a sperm whale rather than a pilot whale and was seen by lots of observers that day in that general area.

They've already figured it out satisfactorily, or as close to it as they will. It's a jellyfish/turtle/sperm whale combo, sightings of different creatures.
