It looks like a Chup but they say it once lived in water so I'd put my money on strange mutated fish. But I could be wrong and so could they.

interesting find

I wish the pic was bigger, I couldn't really tell what I was looking at.
The bottom of the article said there was going to be a follow up to that story, did you find out if they ever found out what it was since it was from 2 months ago?

Game and Fish: Bizarre creature an ocean skate


"A bizarre creature found on Albuquerque’s West Mesa wasn’t the chupacabra, the Department of Game and Fish said, but it was something that isn’t often seen in New Mexico: an ocean skate.



At first, the department identified the creature as a stingray, but later found it was an ocean skate.


Albuquerque Aquarium manager Holly Casman said stingrays and ocean skates are similar, but ocean skates have wider tails than stingrays.

Camain said the creature looks so different because a fisherman cut most of the meat off."

Maybe they assumed it was a fisherman, I suppose someone could have purchaced a whole skate and removed the meat themselves. I don't know.

Woops! Didn't see that skibum.

What a disappointment I actually thought they came upon an mysterious unexplainable beast.

Yes, this is a fish. This issue has popped up before:

Yes, I remeber seeing this come up before. It is still pretty interesting though, and shows how easy it is to mistake something as normal as a skate for some kind of monster. In this case, the animals body had been altered and it was found outside it's normal enviornment, not near the coast, so I can see the confusion.

Probably because the meat was removed in clean cuts, and the rest of the body was intact. If a predator ate it, I would imagine it would be quite messy.

I'm just assuming they were clean cuts, but that would be a sign to me a human did it.

EDIT: That looks alot like a Jenny Haniver, which were dried and manipulated skates sailors would sell of as basilisks, baby dragons, etc... So the skate explanation sounds very likely.

This is what that ended up being? Man, what a dissapointment. Its interesting how people assumed it was an alien, or a chupacabra because hispanics were supposedly 'strongly affected by it.

Case closed, thread closed.
