Massive 'sea monster' discovered on Hulung Brach in Indonesia

Massive 'sea monster' discovered on Hulung Brach in Indonesia

The massive carcass was found on Hulung Beach on Serum Island on Tuesday night by a local man, the Jakarta Globe reported.

Whatever it is, residents understandably want the mysterious creature removed from their beach and have asked local authorities to help them dispose of the decaying ocean dweller. It was initially identified as a giant squid by the Indonesian Army, but upon further review, it appears as though the big blob is actually a badly decomposed whale.

Indonesia's Marine and Coastal Resources Management said it was likely that the carcass belonged to a humpback whale, although others claimed it looked more like a giant squid. But as he approached, he could see more clearly: whatever this was, it had once been alive.

While the cause of death remains unknown, the sea-animal is believed to have been dead for at least three days before it washed up on the beach.

The clip above shows the decomposing body of a mysterious sea creature that washed up on shore in Indonesia recently.

"Judging by the appearance of the head, this is clearly some big dolphin", said Nikolay Kim, the deputy head of the Forecasting department at the Sakhalin Research Institute of Fisheries and Oceanography, according to the Independent.

It baffled locals who speculated the two-tonne creature was a kind of rare undiscovered dugong.

It was later identified as a whale - but had developed a unusual appearance due to decomposition.
