The corpse of what appears to be a previously unidentified aquatic animal washed ashore in Spain recently, confounding onlookers. Some sources reported a second corpse washing ashore shortly thereafter but that has not been confirmed.
The 13' long creature appears to have horns and possibly legs or fins but only photographs remain of the beast as authorities claimed they had to bury the body for safety reasons. Many armchair skeptics insist it is merely the decomposed body of a dead oarfish but others are not so sure, noting the horn-like protrusions on the head.
