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.


Because a crocodile skeleton would totally baffle scientists lmao.

Also zoom in an look where the skull would be, do you see those two protruding bones coming out on top? Not a gator or crock.

I dont think it's a depth perception pic. Take a look at the footprint on the bottom right of the photo. Also other footprints middle right.

Gator probably choked on something.
Doesn't look like horns, looks like rib bones.

haha...I guess laugh away..
Did you see the picture I posted on page 2? Hell, I might have found the exact one that lost his life.
Things tend to get ate floating around in the ocean.
Crocodiles are native to Africa and South American. Didn't this wash up from a giant storm? But I don't see anything to even identify this as Scotland. Crocodiles are know to migrate and swim far into the ocean riding currents.
Where you assume is a head is where the tail connects to the body.
As for the size, its the old hunter/fisherman technique of standing behind the animal and faking a foot up.
I love a good mystery too, its why I'm on this site, nothing at all against the OP. But I feel like I found the answer.

The two, 'horns' may well be a product of deceit, I wouldn't give much credence to them, they even look planted in the background sand without too much thought, and as for "the top" an oarfish, giant or no, is more than likely to be a resting corpse...on it's side,



Go to the ATS link and you can clearly see through the resting body outline, the boning has a similarity to the skeleton tail in the OP picture,
files.abovetopsecret.com...

Another thing to consider is the guy in the picture's trophyesque pose, while his face is pixelised. Whodduh thought.

Show a pic of a crocodile skeleton that has those two long bones where the "head" is.

Creature’ found on Aberdeenshire beach during Storm Ciara – SOLVED


But an expert has confirmed the ‘terrifying’ sea creature is actually the remains of a Minke whale.
Commonly found swimming in the North Sea, this warm-blooded species is actually famous for its bad breath – giving them the nickname Stinky Minkes.



Stranding coordinator Nick Davidson told the Scottish Sun: “It’s a Minke Whale skeleton and it’s been there since October last year.
“It didn’t wash up it was uncovered by the wind.”


SO URCE

And there you have it folks...you're welcome.

Funny how people have more access to information now than at any point in prior history and they won't even use it. A quick Google search of various "vertebrae" configurations across sharks, whales, oar fish, etc. quickly and easily identifies it as some type of whale. By my 7th search I had landed on Minke whale and low and behold the answer was already given on page 3 as being solved.

It does look very much like a crocodile to me. But a large one.

I’m pretty sure Scotland doesn’t have any large crocs in the water up there. Maybe a released pet but again, it’s a very large specimen. Would be quite an old animal to get so big.

Strange animal to be washed up on a Scottish beach.

If anyone had bothered to read the complete text accompanying the second picture, he or she would have noticed that it said:
"Nick Davidson of the Scottish Marine Animal Stranding Scheme confirmed that it was in fact the remains of a Minke whale which originally washed up in October last year but had been uncovered by the recent bad weather.

The so-called "horns" are simple the jawbone of the skull that is lying upside down in the sand. The second photo showed that it was detached from the rotting torso at the time it was photographed, and so it must have been put back in place for the other photo but upside down, as the person who found it failed to realise what the sea creature was.
