Upon occasion we find strange creatures washed ashore that the ocean has deteriorated and bloated and now they resemble a monster of mythical proportions, but there are also some creatures documented on video and photos that are of questionable authenticity. I'm going to present you all with a wide variety of "finds" to evaluate and decide what you think....
Looks creepy, eh? This one was explained. It was found to be a newborn baboon, killed by a bite through the skull which is not unusual in that group of animals to have infanticide.
The African troll (above) video made its way around the internet. According to the hunters' story, they shot one and chased it into a lair where there were more they had to do battle with.
This creature (above) was found in Russia on the beach. It has skin with hair or fur. It was not an alligator, fish or crocodile. It was taken away by Russian special services. What it was? Still not reported.
Most of these creatures are found to be dogs, coyotes and upon occasion a hybridized canine.
"It was also described as having hind legs with five-toed horseshoe-shaped feet with concave arches – which appeared to be suited for bipedal locomotion – but no forelimbs. Its remains were cremated after a cursory inspection by zoologists who said that it posed no danger to the public. The 1954 specimen was described as being similar to the first but much larger, being 120cm (3.9 ft) long and weighing approximately 11.3kg (25lb). It was sufficiently fresh for its eyes, nostrils and teeth to be studied though no official explanation was given at the time as to what it was or what happened to the carcass."
In 2008, something washed ashore in near Montauk, NY that came to be known as the "Montauk Monster." Many believed it was the result of animal experiments on Plum Island nearby where the government did animal testing. Ultimately, a naturalist pointed out that it very much did appear to be a raccoon without its fur and decomposing.
The Brooklyn Bridge Monster of 2012 (below) was thought to be related to the Montauk Monster.
It washed up under the Brooklyn Bridge. This one was explained by one "expert" as a dog that washed ashore, its hair having slipped of its body and being bloated. Doesn't explain the claw or beak.
What I don't understand is why no one ever picks up these things and take them to a vet or someone?
This 30-foot creature (above) washed up on the shores in New Zealand. This was thought to probably be an Orca whale.
The Panama Monster (below) is an interesting story.
In 2009, the creature was found by some teenage boys near a cave where they felt threatened and hit it with sticks and stones and killed it. Some saw the photo and called it a hairless sloth. Supposedly, a sample from it showed that it was a brown-haired sloth.
Interestingly, most all these "monsters" washed ashore. What the water does to fur and skin, bloating the body, decaying away jaws and such, leaves something that barely resembles the original form. Still, within all these pictures above; I have to wonder which one might truly be unexplainable?''
This creature below is said to have been found in the Amazon. Looking at the toes, I'd say this is a bald monkey. And, the background looks photoshop stamped.
This (enormous "sea monster" below) was supposedly found dead in Cambodia -
This supposed "fairy" (below) found in Mexico was said to have a stinger on its tail. Sort of a cross between a person, an insect, a gargoyle and bat.
In Australia, this (below) was found washed ashore.
In Thailand they say that this creature (below) with the body and hooves of a water buffalo and head of a crocodile died after birth. They believe it to be a hybrid.
A reptoid among us? We will never know, as the farmer has passed on and the carcass is unaccounted for.
So far as creatures washing ashore, scientists have concluded that whales and other sea creatures running aground do so because of solar flares/geomagnetic storms that confuse their natural navigational abilities. Perhaps the same could be said of something "unknown" in the sea.
Looking at some of these creatures above, we have to wonder if they are photoshopped, fake models, real flesh, and if they are or are not explainable. It definitely makes one wonder what is out there yet to be found....
One more for fun -
