A "Loch Ness Monster" Washes Up On Georgia Beach

Is it possible the Loch Ness monster has been spotted on a Georgia beach?  Probably not considering Nessie is a Scottish legend, but one man did capture a strange creature washed up on Wolf Island.  Jeff Warren of Waycross, Georgia was shocked when he saw the mysterious creature on the shore.  It has a striking resemblance to Nessie, but some were quick to shut that idea down.

“It looks like a deep sea shark, like a frilled shark,” says Chantal Audran of the Tybee Island Marine Science.  “Although I don’t see gill slits.”  Unfortunately, the world may never know what it really was as the body was never recovered.  Some are starting to wonder if the video was just a hoax.  Chuck Bangley of the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center thinks its just a weirdly decomposed shark, if it was even real.

“After taking a look at the photo the tail looks pretty sharky, so my guess (if it’s real and not a Photoshop job) is that it’s some kind of badly decomposed shark,” says Mr. Bangley.  “Basking sharks do tend to flatten out like that when they wash up.”
