I think it's a Chupacabra (goat sucker) also known as a Jersey Devil.

ok, i was leaning towards a racoon but the skull doesn't match up close enough.

however, a koala skull does. and body shape is also closer to a koala.

So, what is a koala doing washing up on a beach in the US?


Actually, I was missing the canine hole on the top jaw, it's there but you can't make it out at first. I must concur racoon but it's top canines are gone.

Word "on the street" is that it's part of the viral campaign for Cartoon network's Cryptids are real. I don't buy it. Why do something like this (which is pretty gruesome) when its end market is kids?


Nope. I'm sticking with my original opinion...

Also, those giving their opinions should take a close look at the high definition pictures posted here by ruabadphyshtoo. You'll change your opinion. Trust me.

Edit to add: This is why it's not a turtle

No, there is a facility to do research on viruses and such on an island in Long Island Sound but it is close to being closed. It is where they keep and do research on the most deadly viruses in the Small Pox etc...

the local newspaper said it was a skinned racoon with it's top jaw missing.

line two.

I cant recall my login so im posting this anonymous

First thought that came to mind when I saw the body was Bulldog. But frankly it could be any animal. Also if you look closely both front legs are bound together by that "cloth". I also thought that it could possibly be from Plum Island. They do a ton of weird stuff out there. So much so that if you were to even try and get over there you get in BIG trouble. (Yes I live very close to Montauk).

Of course my real conclusion is... fishermen. I've been around fishing on Long Island enough to know there are allot of shark fishermen who are just outright sick.

Why hasnt anyone done any on it?

And, to me (and I am an idiot) it looks like a Gryphon.

It looks like a Chupracabra to me.

Could this creature actually be a sea turtle? the sea turtles get Very big and could there be a possibility that its shell was busted off either by a predator or a bad storm? This could just be the body without the shell maybe?

That is not what they said, they asked if it may be. The fact that they would entertain this idea at all without research is sickening. I sent them an E-mail Telling them to do some research on this before entertaining the notion that it is an alien or creature not of this earth. This is what is wrong with news channals like fox and others, No real investigating at all, Just put some guy on there talking about far fetched ideas and hope it brings in viewers. Its just sad. =/config/common/fan/default.xml

There is the link to the fox video. Sorry I dont know how to put the video directly on to the screen.
They should atleast offer there opinion and not just act so stupid like they so have no clue what it may be. Research is key fox news!! get a clue.

impossible. the arm on the creatue goes down toward its feet then bends up, like our arms. but a turtles arms go up towards the face, then go down and out. but i can see where you're comming from

Absolutely a raccoon missing it's fur, snout and upper teeth. The hand-like paws, body shape, everything screams: "I'm a dead raccoon for God's sake!"

Here's a pic to help illustrate....

that's a great illustration! did you do that yourself?

now, maybe you could do a turtle and a gryphon over it, too, just to confuse the gullible!

Hey i think thats very close, Only reason i didn't say raccoon was because to my knowledge raccoons are a little larger and have quite a wide body (though i don't know how much of their bulk is fur) But its definitely of that family or similar families which includes meekats, Mongoose etc .

I'm in the UK and i've seen a few dead ferrets on the sides of roads which should be surprising since they are not indigenous to the UK, So on that basis although Meerkats etc are not indigenous to America the fact that because people keep them as pets you shouldn't rule them out.

But yeh this animal is definitely nothing unusual.

uh no it's not a racoon. their skull is shaped completely different. all this is is a turtle missing his shell. you can see the imprint of his old shell on his rear end.

That would be my guess as well. Bet we start seeing lots of strange things washing up as the ice melts.
