SEA MONSTER WASHED UP ON SPANISH COAST – Much to the astonishment of Spanish Marine Biologists a creature, that can only be described as a ‘sea monster’ that is thirteen feet in length, has been wash up on the Spanish coast.
The creature was spotted by a person strolling along the beach at Villaricos in the shallows who contact local authorities.
Paco Toleano, the Marine Biologist has said that he has never seen anything quite like it and could be yet an undiscovered species.
The creature consists of a long thin white body with horns and currently tissue samples are being examined in order to determine whether in fact a new species has been discovered or that it is merely part of another member of aquatic life that we are already aware of.
The yet unidentified creature was in a state of advanced decomposition when found and so bad was the stench that only samples could be taken before having to bury the remains.
The Marine Biology Association has come out to suggest that it could in fact be the spine of a shark but until test are completed there is no way of determining the fact due to the state of decomposition.
The biggest mystery is the fact that the creature has horns as no aquatic life has ever been discovered with actual horns; it might be that the horns are not even part of the creature; it could be something that was ingested.
It remains a fact that we know significantly more about our universe than we do about life in our oceans. As a diver I find this most intriguing and even hope that this is a new species that has been discovered.
Diving for many enthusiasts is an incredible journey but even we openly admit that the depths at which we dive don’t even scratch the surface of what lies in the deep and dark depths of our mysterious oceans.
