Gigantic skeleton filmed on the ocean floor

It's a sea dragon! It's just a spine and some tail fins, I wonder what happened to it's head. Amazing how the bones just went to dust when they were touched.

Probably a really old whale skeleton. Hasn't been down there long enough to fossilize, just turn very brittle, hence the porosity of the bones

Really cool, wonder if it's an extinct species? I'd assume so

Obviously a whale skeleton.

Probably not too ancient since bottom marine life tends to burrow through and eat remains on the ocean floor. From the disintegration when the claw tries to pick one up, it doesn't look like it will be around much longer.
If it did have 3 spines on each vertebrae, it could have landed on its back and one is buried in the sediment or consumed.

I can start to believe an enormous size, if I get something to compare it to...otherwise it could be a dolphin to me...or Homer Simpson...

But whale sharks have cartilage instead of bone, would it have lasted this long? It definitely looks like the spine of a massive shark but doesnt have the ridges of a whale shark. Definitely not whale either.

My vote is for oarfish. Maybe paeleaophis if you want to get exotic. Even though it really does look like it came from the biggest great white ever.

Oil and gas ROVs are not gigantic. Google “subsea rov” or “oceanearing rov”.

ive seen them operate. Likely what a lot of you all are saying- whale/shark.

Appears to be a shark by the shape. But 30 meters? Whale Shark maybe?

Not quite the right configuration, but a good guess.
