I guess it is the dead body of a Dugon. "monster" is such a harsh term, the only animals you could call a mosnter is some people.

It looks like a dead horse to me. Look at the teeth. Do whales have teeth like that?




Well, maybe not.

American Alligator:

Snout shot:

Nile Crocodile:


In all honesty, it looks like a gator with worn out teeth. Their teeth do wear out.
This one is still pointy, but it's too round to look like pristine teeth.

Worn tooth from "croc relation":

Slightly worn teeth:

Wide variety of Croc teeth:


Flat tip:

Basically, if a croc has teeth that worn, it would likely be dying or dead.
And not all Gator relatives have nearly the same shape head.
Could well be a "new variety" of Gator/Croc.



And OOOOO Croc molars: They have round nubs.

Crocs and gaters grow back multiple teeth... they don't wor out...

They do wear down.
They're just more likely to fall out and be replaced before they wear down.

Jsut like some people never lose their baby teeth, this croc could be such an abnormaility.


And again, not all teeth in a crocs mouth are pointed.

Doesn't look like a horse to me if you look at the pictures of the tail it's kind of like that of a snake. You'd think it was some kind of croc but they don't live as far up as russia. They are reptiles and it's took cold. So i'm stumped.

The pictures they supply are somewhat 'selective'.

Are there any shots of the the carcass not covered, giving a full.

I think if I was going to display photos of a 'mystery creature', I would expose the whole carcass showing all the features.

Perspective can be everything.

It's a beluga whale.

Next!

How dare you say that about a publication called "The Truth"... If it wasn't true, they couldn't call the magazine Pravda, now, could they? Eh?

I don't see any nostrils, so I'm guessing it is some sort of whale.

Not all of Russia is too cold to have gators/crocs. It's just less likely to have them because most of russia is too cold.

The only reason I keep thinking this looks like one is the tail section.

There is not enough exposed skeleton to be sure of anything. There isn't enough body left to determine anything.

Blue whale skeleton:

Gray whale:

Humpback Whale:

Another whale:

While the tails are similar to a whale, and the skull is narrow enough to be a whale, the typical split down the skull is not there.
Either:
1. There is no split because it isn't a whale.
2. It's not rotted enough for the skull to split like that, and it is a whale.
3. This particular whale type doesn't have a split skull...l
ike the pilot whale:
Hell. This whale almost looks like a gator.

4. The pic or skeleton is doctored.

The Beluga whale skull I've found:

It has the similar shaped head, from side-on, like an alligator, but this isn't a top view. I think it's very plausable.

But I still think it's a gator.

It obviously does not look like any of the baleen whales you listed, but that is not what I was suggesting anyway. It sure looks like a small toothed whale to me. If it is an alligator or crocodile, what happened to its nostrils?

Also, look at the picture where its mouth is being propped open. It looks like the the hinge of this animal's skull allows it to lower its bottom jaw. Crocodilian jaws can't do that.

Also, how could it walk? It's rib cage is enormous far larger--in comparison to the rest of the body--than any crocodilian I've ever seen. And we get an okay look at the back of the body, and I see no sign of hind limbs, not even any joints.

And you are correct on the tail. I've been around alligators all of my life, and I've eaten my fair share of alligator tail, and that does not look like a crocodilian tail to me. I've seen a few dolphin skeletons, though, and it looks very similar.

I think what we're seeing is actually one of these:



Thought to have gone extinct in the '70s, notice the similarity of the teeth, or lack there of.

Peace

Wow... even though it's a funny, I'm impressed you found a puppet that looks so close to the photo. What was that from...Lidsville?

Can you say Beluga Whale?

Despite the shape of their head, Beluga Whale skulls are rather cone shaped. And if I remember correctly, Beluga is the russian term for white, therefore, we can safely assume that they are from the waters surrounding Russia.

I've never seen a reptile or a sea mammal that has molars, like the ones in the picture. In fact, molars are uniquely mammalian. But I can't find a sea mammal that has flat molars, either. I can keep checking.
