The mysterious creature found itself on Bonfil Beach, in the city of Acapulco, in south-west Mexico.
It is understood the body was brought to shore by strong currents.
The odd-looking beast, a huge four metres long, was found by sun worshippers on Bonfil Beach, in the city of Acapulco, in the south-west Mexican state of Guerrero.
The floating body was brought to the shore by strong currents that have been affecting that particular part of the Mexican coast.
Rosa Camacho, believes the animal had not been dead for a long time, it still seemed to have rapidly started to decay.
"We have no idea what type of animal this is, but I do know that it does not smell bad or have a fetid aroma.
"It is four metres long and was found on Bonfil Beach."
Some have suggested that the creature might be a type of giant squid and others a whale.

The simple answer is yes, whales can and do vomit.
When food or bacteria gets lodged in the whales throat and digestive system it irritates the whales digestive tract and causes it to vomit the trapped food/bacteria out of its mouth in order to clear its throat for other foods and prevent the whale from loosing its ability to properly swallow/digest its food.

Maybe it could be some weird form of a jelly fish like this one?
When a Youtube video of the creature was posted last month speculators suggested it was everything from the remains of a whale placenta to a fishing net. However, experts have now confirmed that the ‘sea monster’ is, in fact, a rarely studied jelly fish known as Deepstaria Enigmatica.
The jellyfish was reportedly filmed during deep-sea drilling near the United Kingdom. The species is usually found approximately 5,000 feet below in the south Atlantic Ocean.
Roaming the oceans are two species of Deepstaria, named after the submersible Deepstar that first spotted one intact in the 1960s. Deepstaria reticulum, shown at top, features that beautiful red hue, while the other, Deepstaria enigmatica, appears whiter. Otherwise, they look largely the same.
“Most jellies would have a relatively small bell and then relatively long tentacles,” says Steven Haddock, a biologist at the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute. “These guys have the really big bell that’s almost like a trash bag or something, and pretty much no tentacles.”

Apparently it looks a bit like dog poo. I have friend who found a bit about half the size of your palm or smaller and Ka-Ching $700. It weighs less than gold I think.a reply to: zazzafrazz
