Hi guys,

I am new here and I would like your opinion about this skeleton. It was found for a friend of mine in the coast of Alicante (Medieterranean sea) and we don't know which is the genus and specie.

It is a swordfish skeleton? or maybe a dragon? C)

Doesn't match up to a swordfish. Can we get a closer/better view of the skull?

Are there no good photos of the entire skull in lateral view? That would make identification much easier.

The vertebrae match those of fish, not a cetacean. It would be helpful if we could get a decent picture of the skull.

Do you mean length? Based on the size of the table it is sitting on, it certainly doesn't look to be 4 meters long.

If you compare the vertebrae of the mystery skeleton and that of the bigeye tuna I posted earlier, they are nearly an exact match.

Could well be, originally  thought sturgeon (maybe a beluga) because of the length. 

But as sturgeon are cold water and tuna warm water, i am going with tuna too,  a big one.

Its a tuna.

On that note, have you ever read Old man and the sea by Ernest Hemingway, great book.

Yeah it's probably a tuna but I can't prove it's not a dragon so "maybe".
