Hopefully they recovered the skeleton for examination.

Side to side like an alligator? The dorsal view looks reptilian but there are no legs.

It could be a very large dolphin but they move up and down to swim too not side to side.

Looks like there is enough left there to get a DNA sample. Couldn't we compare it to known species? We do have DNA samples of lots of things in the ocean....right?

I guess the scientists are to baffled to act and share! ; )

It’s clearly a Crocodile tail, you can even see where the hind legs were. Then the old depth perception pic behind it to make it seem larger than it is.

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.




My guess.
Oarfish


I think you have it,

This is a smallish one, it is a bony fish, and you can see the flat looking fins all along the backbone markings.



Much more detail here,

The only way to find out what's that thing is cooking it and see what that taste like.

Now tell me the ten first simulaties :



Well, first off it’s not skeletonized yet, and it could be upside down. It’s covered in seaweed, but you can see scales up where the legs and body use to be. Honestly, I don’t know how you can’t see It.
I’ll try to post a picture but it will probably be a link.

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


I don't think any sharks have bones - they have heavy-duty cartilege instead.

The op is misleading. The link says "locals are baffled". It does not say scientists are baffled. Only the op says that. And I see nothing to verify what he said about scientists being "baffled".

ETA

It does say "But even marine biologists are baffled" but that is only because they cannot tell much from just the one picture. So baffled is a stretch.

I agree with Texas here. My first though looking at the end of the 'tail' was crocodile or alligator.

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.

Yes, baffled, is a bit hyperbolic. A DNA test will answer the question.

But that’s still a huge crocodilian.

First thing that came to mind was crocodile.
