Mysterious creatures that have washed ashore

A rotting carcass of a huge sea monster was found on a beach in southern Spain on

Thursday, Aug. 22. While authorities and some experts were baffled as to what

it could be, two leading shark experts insists it’s a shark, according to GrindTV.


A woman discovered the creature near the Almanzora caves, where she found the

horned head of the beast and, later, its giant body located a short distance

away.
