Some think the Loch Ness Monster might have been found after a mysterious sea creature washed ashore in Spain. It’s described as being a horned animal that stretches 13 feet long and it has left beach personnel baffled, wrote. The beast is also being referred to as a water dinosaur or sea dragon even though it was found at an advanced stage of decomposition along the shoreline of Luis Siret Beach in Villaricos on Thursday.

“It’s hard to know what we’re dealing with,” Marina-Sea Life Defense Program, or PROMAR, spokesman Paco Toledano told as quoted by Inexplicata. “It’s very decomposed and we cannot identify what it is.

“Perhaps we could learn something more from the bones, but to be precise, it would be necessary to perform a genetic analysis, which is very expensive and who would pay for it?

“Anyway, we have submitted the information to colleagues with more experience and knowledge to see if they can tell us something more specific," he said. Toledano also explained the horns at the top of the creature’s head. They are just bones that fell out of place. “It’s not a longhorn cowfish, that’s for sure,” he said.

The head was found first by the women and then a team helped her find the rest of the body. “A lady found one part and we helped her retrieve the rest,” Maria Sanches of Civil Protection in Cuevas said via “We have no idea what it was. It really stank.”

The speculation seem to be endless when it comes to the true identity of the creature, with the fictional Scottish Loch Ness Monster being, arguably, the favorite guess. Some thought it might be a mutant fish or a rare shark species, but apparently the best presumption seems to be that it is an oarfish.
