A mysterious 13 foot long (4 metre) sea monster has washed ashore on a tourist beach in Mexico, leaving beach-goers and experts baffled as to what it could be.
The creature was discovered on Bonfil Beach in the city of Acapulco, Mexico, stunning witnesses who immediately began taking photo’s and posting them on social media.
Yahoo News reports:
The creature’s body was washed on the shore by strong currents that have been affecting parts of the Mexican coast.
Rosa Comacho, the coordinator of the Civil Guard and Fire Brigade believes the animal had not been dead for a long time – but it has started to rapidly decay.
She said: ‘We have no idea what type of animal this is, but I do know that it does not smell bad or have a fetid aroma.
‘It is four metres long and was found on Bonfil Beach.’
The photos of the mysterious creature have since provoked huge debate online – with some suggesting that it might be a type of giant squid, while others have suggested that it is a whale.
