The festering carcass of some yet to be identified sea monster was filmed soaking in its own decay on the shore of Seram in Indonesia. Now, you may be asking yourself, “what type of unholy beast is that?” It’s a 50-foot long monstrosity that gives the fabled Loch Ness Monster a run for her money.
Locals have been gathering at Hulung Beach to witness the incredible creature firsthand.
The person, who originally shared this video, Patasiwa Kumbang Amalatu believes that this creature is a decomposing humpback whale. He also said that the carcass looks like a liopleurodon wrapped in very old skin. Liopleuodrons were gigantic ancient sea creatures that existed in middle of the Jurassic Period. It’d be crazy if that beast reappeared in the Maluku Providence of Indonesia.
“These aren’t tusks,” Amalatu said. “This is its mouth, but it’s covered with decomposed skin.”
Is this a humpback whale like Amalatu thinks? Southeast Asian mammal researcher Marcus Chua thinks otherwise. Chua believes this repulsive carcass is a baleen whale.
“[Based] on the images and videos, in the advanced stage of decomposition it is not possible to determine whether that is a humpback whale or not,” Chua said. He also mentioned that there is no record of a giant squid being spotted in Indonesian waters.
Lab test are current being conducted to determine what the heck this thing is. Could it be a humpback whale? Could it be a baleen whale or giant squid? Or maybe it’s a prehistoric creature or ancient alien.
