I always like those little mysteries. And of course scientists are baffled ; )



Linky:


Mystery surrounds the skeleton of a mysterious creature that washed up on a Scottish beach during Storm Ciara.

The intriguing beast was found on the Aberdeenshire coastline on Sunday as the country endured 90mph winds and torrential rain.

Looks like someone made a dinosaur sandcastle to me.

Few interesting tidbits from the article:




'Very similar to Orca or Dolphin. But the caudal vertebrate looks rather slim. Not a shark for sure though.'

But Andrew Mowat rubbished the idea, saying: 'Spine looks like it’s designed for side to side movement? Whales move up and down.'

Does not look like sand to me... but hey, you never know!

I really like the horns !

Indeed an interesting spine. Looks nothing like a ribcase or a normale fishbone structure.

Any ATS'er around familiar with this kind of spine design ?

Strange how the pieces of backbone stayed together like that. You would think it would have broke apart in all those high waves. There was quite a storm over there. I have no idea what it is but think that there are some experts that could identify what animal it came from. Fish are animals too to clarify things.

Guess Id go with whale shark, or that odd Basking shark sized shark found around Norway.

My guess.
Oarfish

Guess I'm not a marine biologist. I looked at it and thought, "man, that's a big jawbone ..."

😜

Cheers

You assume.. : )

it could be uncovered instead of washed up.

To me it looks like something missing more of the top as of the bottom.

So it could have been buried in the sand and the storm washed away sand to expose it.

I'm not a biologist, but is is definitely not an oarfish.

Edit:

Maybe i spoke to soon, it does have the "horns"

Fun fact:

You does not have to "go" with anything.

I know it sounds ridiculous.. but "I don't know" is a legitimate answer.

That is true, it could have just been uncovered, buried intactduring a storm a while back. Good conclusion.

It does look like an oarfish from the picture you posted, I thought about that, but the skeleton does not look like what I thought an oarfish would look like.

Yeah, it intrigues!

The strange side "plates" of the spine does not reminds me on first sight of anything i know of.

um, since it hasnt been verified, "guesses" is all your thread has beyond the OP.

It looks to be a very very large reptile. In the alligator family from the spine.

I love these news stories. They always say, "Scientists are baffled!" ..but what scientists? Why would they be baffled? They can go and test it.
