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."

Whether really possible or not is open to debate, but i watched a programme once with theories on this which consisted of mixing volatile chemicals (similar to the bombardier Beetle) in a (type of) armour plated mouth cavity that produced a burst of fire from the mouth. It could be used as a display or a warning, but not for projecting a flamethrower to attack or make BBQ lunch!

That is one of the best sentences I've ever read! It would make a great quote!

A sea-dwelling dinosaur perhaps? Maybe one that has yet to be discovered (until now, of course). If it is real at all.

Probably a dinosaur. Dragons are spiritual beings, they have no physical skeleton

Wasn't the Kraken more of a squid.

@WillowWolf: not only the cranium but also the "body" is of a shark. I think I don't have to tell you that this is just the vertebral column of a shark naturally. So there's nothing "strange" with it. Search through this thread I think someone showed this picture of a shark's skeleton before: http://australianmuseum.net.au/Uploads/Images/15767/sharkskeleton_big.jpg
