This is weird.


A strange creature has washed up on a beach in Mexico leaving residents baffled as to what it could be. The creature appears to have the head of a dolphin but the tail of a tadpole. It has sharp, fanged teeth but no eyes – prompting speculation it has emerged from the deep waters of the Pacific Ocean where no light penetrates and eyes aren’t needed. Locals found the bizarre creature on the Destiladeras beach on the Pacific coast of Mexico, but as yet nobody has been able to identify it.

Initially, people thought it was a dead dolphin until they got closer and realised it was something completely different. None of the locals interviewed by local media could recall ever seeing anything like it before.

Pictures at the link. Any ideas? Deformed dolphin? Unknown deep sea creature? Hoax?

Whatever it is, it’s definitely strange.

The way the tail it is shaped makes me thinks it’s something other than a dolphin. Whatever it is, the tail seems like it was designed to go side to side, while the tail of a dolphin moves vertically.

Who knows, maybe a dolphin banged a eel or something... and maybe they banged in that wonderfully toxic water off the coast of Japan. And maybe that little sea devil creation swam over to mexico for spring break before perishing.. i dunno, im a few credits shy of my marine biology degree

Check the comments.


The comments go from an eel, to a deformed Dolphin, to a Fukushima accident, to a Boris Johnson supporter.

I’m not sure which one I’m leaning towards.

Why do I always feel so sorry for these creatures? I bet that it is a deformed something due to manmade toxins in the water. Certainly looks as if it has the typical head shape of a dolphin. Maybe it has teeth like that for the same reason it didn't develop normally in the first place.
Poor thing.

It's a dead eel. The eye placement on them messes with you when you look at this. Morays and other eels have eyes above the mouth and that hump behind their head makes one see an eyeless dolphin (I even can picture that).

But it's an eel. You can even see the eye above the mouth. Once you see it, it becomes obvious.

Yeah had to look for a different angle photo..The first picture would really make you think it some kind of dolphin.

The eye socket is still visible in the second picture.

Peace

Well done with the addition of the googly eye. It makes it stand right out as a moray eel.

It looks like it might just be a physically retarded dolphin. Mutation happens across all living things. I'm not making fun of it or anything. That's just what it looks like. There's tons of chemicals flowing out of the Mississippi River from the agriculture and farming.

Not a classic eel body and no size reference
Has the belly and head of a dolphin but jaw and tail of an eel

Be more interesting if there was a size reference

Sea monster was once known in my local river, the Swan in Perth, similar as the one in the photo as I understand
Was called the wagyl, myth and superstition now days

As much as I and everyone else wanted it to be cthulhu spawn, the masses are correct for once. Just a dead eel. I just wonder if any if those sick bottle nose dolphins had their way with it after it died? Opportunistic swimming mario batali bastards
