A mysterious "blob-like alien" sea creature washed up on the shores of Durras Beach in Australia's New South Wales, baffling experts about its origin. The creature, which has a yellow hue and three segments, drew comparisons to several things including a jellyfish, part of a jellyfish and part of a sea animal.

The most hilarious of the comparison was when someone described it as "Donald Trump's hairpiece in the sea." While many joked about the "alien creature," experts tried to determine what it was. Photos of the creature was sent to Sapphire Coast Marine Discovery Centre in Eden.

"Suggestions included a jellyfish, part of a jellyfish, part of a sea creature, part of a fish, an egg mass, and someone's yellow scarf they dropped last winter," centre manager Kerryn Wood said on social media, according to Mirror U.K.

"The reaction has been one of genuine mystery and intriguem" Wood said. "It's an unusual looking thing and it's hard to tell if it's a whole thing or a part of something. It's something not normally seen and therefore it's attracted a lot of attention."

Kerryn said that she believes the blob is the bell of a jelly blubber - a common jellyfish species along Australia's eastern coast. The look of the creatures seems to make her think that the jellyfish was mutilated.

"Possibly it's due to predation," Kerryn said, "or human interaction like fishing or boating - it could have been run over by a boat motor... Or rough seas could have battered it against rocks."

This is not the first time that an alien-like creature has baffled beachgoers and several other people on the internet.

Most recently, a traveler found a mysterious "sausage-like" creature at Victoria’s Lake Bolac, Australia, and posted a video of it on social media. Guy Shlomi posted a video of the miniature creature on Facebook with the caption “Just another alien in Australia…”

Dr. Tanya Latty, an entomologist at the University of Sydney, said the animal was a rat-tailed maggot and the creature did not pose a threat to humans.

In another incident earlier this month, a man discovered an alien-like creature living in his aquarium after he filled it with plants he took from Lake Waikaremoana, North Island in New Zealand. Photos of the life form, swimming inside one of the green plants were circulated online. Though the man was not sure about what the creature was, some suggested it to be caddisfly.

In a similar incident in New Zealand in November 2018, a woman found a strange-looking skeletal sea creature with spike-covered skin, two legs, a tail and a long head while collecting trash after a rough storm near a beach.
