My highly speculative guess would be a partially decomposed whale.

I recall seeing a similar find a year or two ago and that is what it turned out to be.

it almost looks like a giant giant giant flatfish of some sort.
if it is fresh enough, those people probably are not going hungry that day.

all we need now is a giant frying pan...



nope, that pan isn't even big enough..

qualitygossip,
for future references, we might get this thread moved to the crypto forum:
www.abovetopsecret.com...

Thanks for posting the photo. I've yet to suss out how to do that.

Whale could be right actually as it looks like the sort of black skin has decomposed?

I think it was proven to be a decomposing sperm whale and the tendrils were bacteria and or shrimp, krill and other bottom feeders and bugs of the sea. I saw this a while ago.

It looks like a typical water-borne mammal.

It's badly decomposing, so any 'hair' on it seems to be speculative.

My first guess is whale.

If that's not right, then my second guess would be a mutant spruce grouse.

End of story.

right click on photo from web.

go to "properties"

highlight & copy "address" of url (if not too long/more than 2 lines)

then paste that url code inbetween:

[ ats] and [ /ats] (without spaces).

you can see how i did it if you try and quote my post, to give you an idea.

Clearly, it's a blobasorious.


I think that this has been discussed on this site and others and most likely it's a decomposing whale.

I would guess that it is a rotted sperm whale. You can even see the where the "lines" were (the darker lines on top of it), in its blubber.

no problem, the Esoteric Teacher is also a student, always.

for future reference, though... a mod may edit out that quote. they do not appreciate long quotes.

but, for the purpose of that quote you were just learning how to embed a picture here on ATS.

no problems,

What is this animal???

Well it is obvious isn't it.
IT IS DEAD.

I'm going to say it's a Whale Shark, largest fish in the ocean. If it were a sperm whale I think the teeth would have definately been attached to the carcass and identifiable.
