Sea monster washes up in Australia
February 21, 2016
Yet another sea monster has been found (opens new window), this time in Swansea, NSW, Australia. Ethan Tipper posted the photo on Facebook, asking "What the f*** is this?".
Many alleged sea monsters are partially decomposed basking sharks (very large sharks) and other large fish and mammals. In this instance, an expert has identified the animal as a pike eel.
In 2013 a sea monster that washed ashore on Tauranga beach (opens new window) was identified as a badly rotted killer whale corpse.
