10 Infamous Sea Carcasses People Thought Were Monsters

Montauk Monster

The Montauk Monster is incredibly bizarre. The creature washed up on the shores in New York in 2008, with the head of a bird, teeth on its lower jaw, and the body of a dog. The creature was completely hairless, too. Today, some believe it to have been a diseased raccoon.

Newfoundland Blob

The Newfoundland Blob isn’t quite as mysterious as other mentions on this list, but it was certainly disgusting enough. The empty shell of blubber, fat, and skin washed ashore from a whale that had died years prior. The slimy remains were floating in the ocean for a long time before washing ashore.
