Does the fabled Loch Ness monster have a long lost uncle?
A MYSTERIOUS and grotesque, nine-metre long “sea monster” has washed up on a New Zealand beach.
This headline from http://www.express.co.uk grabbed my attention this morning. I figured it was worth sharing. A video of the gruesome find was posted on YouTube by user Elizabeth Ann, who requested help in identifying it.
I have posted the video up on my webpage located here, http://andymancan.batcave.net/
The remains are in pretty poor shape so it is rather hard to say what the heck it is. The one thing that I think we can all agree on is that it contains some rather nasty looking chompers.
When she posted the video she included this comment:
“This strange marine creature was washed up dead on Pukehina Beach in the Bay of Plenty last week after some violent storms.”
“Can anyone help identify what it is? It has a huge head and teeth with rudimentary flippers.
“It seems about 9M in length but the lower part of the body is probably mainly entrails from an attack.”
My guess is a small whale? hard to say
However, scientists who have bravely taken a closer look at the beast have since said the creature could just be a dead Orca, better known as a Killer Whale.
I like the idea of it being a sea monster alot better! It’s anyones guess.
Have a great day,
