The skeleton of a large sea creature has been discovered off the coast of China's Shandong Province.
Measuring 3.5m in length, the large snake-like skeleton has generated a lot of attention since it was hauled up from the depths. Camera crews were soon on the scene to document the find as it was laid out on a red cloth for examination. Despite the report appearing online on April 1st, the original story dates back to March 28th and is apparently not an April Fools Day prank.
Speculation is rife over what the creature actually is. Some believe that the skeleton, which consists of 153 individual joints, is that of a dragon or sea monster while others are more skeptical, believing it instead to be that of a shark or other conventional sea creature.
"The skeleton, which is believed to have a total of 153 joints, was found by fishermen in Qingdao on 28 March."
