A couple walking along a Scottish beach came across the remains of a strange sea creature.

The 30ft corpse is partly decomposed, experts are still attempting to determine what it is and the images have sparked considerable debate online. "It could be a killer whale, given the size of the animal. A pilot whale is another possibility," suggests London Zoo marine life expert Rob Deville.

"A walker got a monster surprise when she encountered a gruesome sea creature curled up on the sand."

It's dead so decomp has set in, the lips have pulled back. 6 with a beak? yeah right.... anyay why on a beach That's not a beak, that's a exposed jaw with the teeth missing. It's bone. 7 whales dont have fur do they? this is too furry Whales actually do have fur, they're mammals after all. Though they rely on their blubber to keep them warm. In this case though, that's not fur. That's decaying skin. http://paleo.cc/ce/plesio-russ.htm 9 the skull doesnt look like what i know as a racoons face anyway they mention propo... [More]

Well, OBVIOUSLY it's a sand worm. I mean, anyone familiar with the species would see that in a... No wait, the head and neck of a diplodocus! Yes, that's it, most definitely the head and neck of a diplodocus, CLEARLY the body is still out there somewhere. Yup, yup, yup!

FYI, just because something looks like fur do... [More]

I'm familiar with some of these remains from other articles and I think they're making stuff up. Never heard mention of the CIA at one of these before, and the sku... [More]

You have to accept that science 100% knows everything about every creature that lives in the ocean. I mean only 95% remains unexplored so you can see that there is virtually nil chance of something undiscovered washing up you're right, obviously this is instead a overweight Atlantean who died in exposure. It just happens to look like a desiccated whale. Humans havn't explored, however much has been mapped and explored by ROV. It's also worth noting that most of this area not explored consists of a mostly empty zone between the ocean bottom and surface where the majority of life in the ocean is... [More]

It's probably just a mermaid. Or merman - don't be sexist It just looks like a whale. It's fins are missing because it's in advanced stage of decay and has probably been mauled by wild animals.

Just the spine and head of a whale with the little remaining flesh you see on it in the picture.

You think that a majority of the ocean has been explored by ROV? That would take thousands of ROV's decades to get anywhere close, unless you are suggesting that ever creature discovered at every depth is consist... [More]
