Bizarre Beach Beast
Part of maritime legend since man first sailed the oceans, monsters have always caused curiosity and terror, and many films have featured sea-beasts of huge proportions, though the stories surrounding these creatures are mostly mythology, little evidence to suggest that some of these giants of the deep ocean might actually exist ever having surfaced,
Cryptozoology which is the study of such creatures of legend is still an area capturing imaginations of laymen and scientists, and the appearance, this week, of the large body of a dead sea creature, seemingly unknown, was found washed up on a beach near Aberdeen in Scotland, which quickly became the hot topic of the day

Whether it turns out to be a real sea monster or just a whale carcass, the debate will rage on, previously unknown large marine animals having been discovered many times before. Since some environmental biologists believe that there could well be dozens of big ocean-dwelling sea-life that humanity has never encountered before, the idea is not outlandish at all.
With only a tiny fraction of the vastness of the world’s oceans fully examined, the possibilities of exciting discoveries are mouth-watering, baring in mind that the amazing Megamouth shark was only discovered, entirely accidentally when one got caught by the anchor of a U.S. navy ship in 1976.
Unlike any other shark previously seen, these beasts are very rarely sighted, just like the Omura’s whale, first caught by a Japanese research ship around the same time in the Pacific, the 33fr monster barely ever seen since, so new species turning up now and again can hardly come as a surprise.

Sea monsters, if they exist, are depicted in ways suggesting that they could possibly be descendents of plesiosaurs, marine reptiles of the dinosaur age, as many reported sightings include the long necks or giant flippers typical of such beasts. For the doubting Thomases who swear that no fossils newer than 65million years old of such creatures have ever been found, the same is true of the 5ft Coelacanth fish, yet one was discovered in South African waters in the 1930s.
Whatever the truth really is, with the likeliest explanation being that the carcass is NOT an unknown species at all, the earth has a set of oceans so vast that humans may never fully catalogue the boundless varieties of life beneath the surface of the seas, and Godzilla COULD be lurking somewhere, though we may never get to see it.
