Stories of crazy, weird “monster” bodies washing up on some random beach somewhere are becoming increasingly more common.
Usually the creature ends up being something normal and natural–although possibly a bit deformed–and people just move on.
Still, each time it happens, something in the pit of my gut hopes to high heaven THIS time, it’ll be a real monster and not just another animal from the deep.
Check out what popped up along the beach in Santa Barbara, California and decide for yourself: Is this some ancient beast having risen from the depths, or just some unfortunate animal that drowned and has been in the water so long it’s nearly unrecognizable?
“I’d say it looks like a combination of a seal and a dog with fangs dried up, potentially,” resident Michael Curtis told KEYT-TV.
“To me it looks reminiscent of a dinosaur…like an old dog, ancient,” Josh Curtis added.
Whatever this brown, hairless beach creature is, it has claws and fangs and as the KEYT news anchors pointed out, it’s not very big. It’s not much larger than the broken branches lying next to it.
