A mysterious 4.5 ton rotting carcass has washed up on a beach at Guangdong in China.

The carcass is allegedly too decayed to accurately identify, leading many to speculate that it could be some form of unknown creature from the ocean's depths. Others however remain skeptical, believing the beast to be little more than a whale.

As everyone else has said, it is clearly a Whale, I think the original people to report this corpse are just not used to seeing one in such an advanced state of decay. Hardly warrants news coverage, but then again this is 'The Sun' we are talking about, that toilet roll of an excuse of a newspaper would print a picture of Elvis on the moon if someone sent it in and tout it as news.

I know it said it was too badly decade to be identified, but can't they do a DNA test on it to see what it is? Looks like a whale body however decomposing very quickly! I think they should try to run some tests just to be sure! COOL TOPIC! PS
