Whenever something washes up on a shore and it isn’t immediately immediately recognizable, the first guess always turns to something like mutant or ancient creature of the deep. The newest such discovery has just happened on the beach of an Indonesian Island.

Initially, fishermen mistook the 50 foot long carcass for a wrecked ship, but were surprised (upon closer inspection), to find that it was something much more mysterious and smelly. At this point, experts are falling onto two camps between it being a dead whale or a giant squid, while non-experts are trying to figure out if it is a relative of the Loch Ness Monster or possibly a creature of alien origin. We should know the truth either way pretty soon, as they’ve now taken samples out for lab testing.
