'Sea monster' mystery spawned after bizarre-looking carcass washes ashore in New Zealand
A bizarre-looking carcass washed ashore recently on a New Zealand beach, fueling speculation that it was some sort of sea monster.
This is because the head and teeth of the deteriorated corpse resembled that of something ferocious and prehistoric, while the rest of the creature was unidentifiable to beachgoers who made the discovery because of its state of decay.
A YouTube video described the carcass on Pukehina Beach in the Bay of Plenty as belonging to a "strange marine creature" and the uploader asked: "Can anyone identify what it is? It has a huge head and teeth with rudimentary flippers. It seems about 9 [meters] in length but the lower part of the body is probably mainly entrails from an attack."
