So....nobody has been able to come up with what this is yet. I figured the best place is here on ATS. Anyone have any ideas? Looks odd to me and I can't seem to place what it may be, though I admit I do not know all sea creatures out there....




A Scottish tourist unwittingly captured an unidentifiable sea monster while vacationing in Greece.

Harvey Robertson was on a boat cruise off the coast of Parga, sailing through sea caves with his family. He was initially just trying to capture the unusual color of the surrounding water with his iPhone camera.




Some say it could be a Cuvier’s beaked whale, which have been known to frequent the Mediterranean, others have speculated that it could be the “love child of a hippo and crocodile”—but so far, even scientists are baffled

I instantly cringe when one of these silly stories come up and the sourced article inevitably claims that "but so far, even scientists are baffled", as if "scientists" all over the world are trying to figure this out and don't have anything more important to do.

As for the photo, from a personal opinion, I would agree that it looks very similar to Cuvier’s beaked whale, or at the very least, some other kind of Porpoise.

As usual for cryptoid photographs, the angle is really weird and would be difficult to identify even if it was a very common animal. At least it's not super blurry!

If the white material in the water is styrofoam. I would say our monster is a bottle brush.

Doesn't seem to show any symmetry. I'd guess it's either a deformity of something much larger or it doesn't exist.

not at all

I would also add it looks like a hippo missing a lower jaw

I do not think there is much chance of this whatever being identified

probably the coolest pic around

If that black dot is not an eye, i would say its a dolphin of some sort.
If we think of the black spot as just something floating in the water, it reminds me of a dolphin breaking through the water, belly up. The underside of his mouth is facing up.
I can even make out its right fin.

It looks a lot like Cuvier's whale,



That it's colour is very white in the OP's picture...that could be due to an ageing male.

All cephalopods are mullusks, so yes they can have tenticles


Kingdom‎: ‎Animalia
Phylum‎: ‎Mollusca
Class‎: ‎Cephalopoda

Edit: just to be clear, not all mollusks are cephalopods.
