    I can’t see it in the picture too well, but are those hooves on the creature? Maybe it’s a yak who met a bad end. Yaks are big and hairy, right?

    Oh my god the yetti fell into the sea!

  3. Shadow says:

    Yak’s are not 20 feet long, nor do they have frickin dorsal or pectoral fins.

    • Ciel says:

      Actually it was not even close to twenty feet long it very well could be a yak taking this creature was only about 6.6 feet in length so it could very well be a yak

    Manatees, commonly called sea cows, only grow to about 12 or 13 feet. If this is actually a sea cow then it is the Hydrodamalis gigas which was thought to have been hunted to extinction in the 1700s. If that’s what it is, this is good news. It means they are still out there.

    Either a Sea Cow or Frilled Shark. Whatever it is it’s been in something’s stomach for awhile.

    I enjoy the scientific method employed of using some sort of dull blade to awkwardly saw at the animal while a drove of people encircle it.
