I honestly just think most of these washed-ashore cases are simply examples of known animals in an advanced state of decay that laypeople cannot
identify with any reasonable amount of accuracy. I think if some of our beloved pets were dead decaying along the shore, or in the sea, for a long
time (days at least I think) you'd have a hard time recognizing Max, Sparky, whatever... I grew up near the coast in NJ and beaches are very active,
diverse ecosystems that include crabs and other crustaceans, fish, birds and all manner of wildlife that will eat just about anything.
