It is common knowledge that despite this age’s sophisticated technology, we are still far from uncovering even a dot of the underwater world. You might even be surprised to know that there are still more than a dozen sea creatures that are beyond one’s imagination. Here are some of the unknown creatures that were washed up on the beach showing signs of the mysteries yet to be unraveled.
1. Giant Creature with Bird-Like Beak
In the Russian Far East, the carcass of a very strange creature drew attention to many people living nearby. As far as scientists call it, the creature is like a “strange prehistoric-like mutant” that looks similar to dolphins but is relatively larger.
2. The Dinosaur-Like Turtle
No, it’s definitely not a made-up creature from a film. In fact, when this photo surfaced in the social media, a lot of people said that the animal was a fake. Apparently, this dinosaur-like turtle is a real one and was found in the shore of Russia. After several studies, this odd creature was then identified as an “alligator snapping turtle”, considered as the heaviest freshwater turtle in the planet.
3. Giant Eyeball
What appears to be an eyeball of a giant sea creature was found in the sand of Fort Lauderdale, Florida in 2012. Most people who saw the giant eyeball first-hand initially thought that a colossal sea monster is living in the area! As it turns out, the rumor isn’t anywhere near reality. The giant eyeball was found to belong to a large swordfish about fourteen hundred pounds.
4. Montauk Monster
This list wouldn’t be complete without mentioning the one that baffled scientists and caused huge media uproar, the Montauk Monster. Authorities and zoologists first thought that the bizarre creature is just a bloating and decomposing raccoon. However, such theory was debunked knowing that raccoons are distinctively leggy. Since the monster’s debut in 2008 in the beach of New York, it remained a favourite subject of controversy and speculation. Even today, there isn’t any definite explanation how the creature got into the shore of New York and exactly what type of animal it is.
5. Unknown Sea Monster with Sharp Teeth
In 2013, the locals in the Philippines were stunned to found a massive sea monster washed up on shore after Typhoon Haiyan devastated the place. The creature seems incredibly bizarre that most people thought it was a product of Photoshop. Nevertheless, the fact remains that Typhoon Haiyan did not only wreak havoc on many countries, it also revealed one of the rarest and most odd beasts lurking in the ocean.
