You have to admit that whatever this thing is.....it looks rather weird.. Maybe some marine biologist can identify what the creature is ? I certainly do not know.
www.dailystar.co.uk...


The freakish creature was spotted decaying on a US beach in Texas City, Texas, once the superstorm had cleared.

The monster – similar to something from horror movie It – can be seen in photos with its fangs and tail trailing across the sand.

Preeti Desai, from the National Audubon Society, found the monster lying on the empty beach.

It does look smaller than the first/feature picture shared. That one makes it look bigger than it is.
Better perspective:

It looks rather horrific, no doubt, Lovecraftian of sorts. Due to features, etc. I'd go with decayed eel for now.

“We squished it around a bit, and even turned it over but couldn’t come up with any other ideas.”

Ahhh, the scientific method. I'm glad they knew what they were doing. First step when discovering a potential new species is squish it around a bit. At least that's what Mr. Grant taught us in 9th grade....

They make it sound so huge in the story, but it isn't that big. Well, if you are a crab walking on the beach, I suppose it would look huge.

That there is a fangtooth snake eel. Seen one once and it looks just like that. Bet my life on it.

Did they use a stick.
If you're going to poke something, always use a stick.
