When you`re down by the sea and an eel bites your knee,
That`s a Moray!

Most likely a dead and bloated eel, the mouth and teeth are a dead giveaway.

However, initial impressions give this eerie feeling that it must be some sort of deep sea dolphine that adapted and evolved in the dark ocean depths. The bloated head gives this "Alien Xenomorphe".

Too bad that the photos don't display the top of it's head - as I would like to see if it has any blowhole, or not.

They tend to have eyes.

I still don't see any eyes, in either picture...

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



Don't tell the noongar people that..

It is probably related to the Morey Eel, but I think it is a different species, they find new species all the time. When someone who specializes in this takes a look at it in person, they will be able to shed more light.

And here is me expecting a fat guy in a pair of swimming trunk's, that could be a mutation but if not I wonder if it could be an unknown genus of the whale family - if it is air breathing that is, a lot more interesting than some of the threads recently so thank you for sharing.

Other than the lack of eye's as other's have pointed out it look's as if the fin's have simple been chewed off the carcass and it could simply be a dolphin after all - but one with no eye's, not that big a problem since they hunt by echo location BUT it would if so still suggest an unknown species of dolphin.

Except that it does not have four big flippers...... That's not much of a resemblance.

Not your typical dolphin teeth..



Peace
ETA: if I place a googly eye here it becomes an moray eel...



Spot on! It is a Moray Eel. You can see the nostril and the tell tale stretched skin of the neck.

Yeah, that's a big Morey eel.
If you really wanna creep out, they should have opened his mouth up.
These guys have a second set of retractable jaws.
Reminds me of the video of the dude feeding the morey his thumb instead of the hotdog.
Popped his thumb off instantly.
Brutal.

Looks like big eel to me. That would be my 20 second look at it.

Ya know, if I walked up on that on a beach, I'd immediately say look at the Moray Eel. Not sure why anyone would think anything else?

Def. an eel.

There's one at an aquarium shop I go to once in a while, I never, ever saw the thing in full length, it was also just it's head sticking out.

Then one time I saw it move from it's little cave, and it was this strange thick stubby looking thing, like in the picture. Not you're ordinary eel that most suspect, like the wriggly mud dwellers.
