A mysterious sea creature's skull with a huge tongue and razor sharp teeth washed up on a beach in England on Tuesday.

A woman, who found the creature while walking on Shelly Beach in Exmouth, shared its images on Facebook.

Angela Mynard was with her husband Dan and her pet dog when she spotted the creature's remains, according to Devon Live. She posted the images to Facebook group Exmouth Community U.K., asking if anyone could help her identify the creature.

"Can anyone tell me what type of fish this is (was!)? It has a big tongue and more teeth further back in its head. The thought of this rubbing up against my leg while swimming...." she wrote.

Social media users quickly began debating about the identity of the scary looking creature.

"Eel I reckon from seeing other posts in the past. Could be wrong though," one user wrote. Another commented, "Possibly a stone fish ... is it complete or part of it missing??"

Some users said that it could be a monkfish. "With its huge mouth full of sharp teeth there is no doubt that the monkfish is a predator," a person wrote. "Monkfish will take pouting, sandeels, cod, pollock, coalfish, dogfish, all kinds of flatfish and even small rays."

""It's 100% definitely a Hake. And on another observation some of you mention Anglerfish and monkfish. Anglerfish was the only name for it until it was branded "monkfish" so the same fish," one user wrote.

Another user thought that the creature was a conger eel, many of which had been found washing up along Devon beaches earlier in the year.

The identity of the creature remains unknown and has not been confirmed.

This is not the first time a mysterious and bizarre-looking sea creature has washed up on a beach, baffling locals.

Recently, a woman and her son came across a mysterious creature, resembling an eyeball, on the shore of Mustang Island in Texas. Jennifer Baltazar spotted the creatures only after her son complained of a stinging pain in his foot. She took photos of the creature and sent the images to Mission Aransas reserve director Jace Tunnell at the University of Texas Marine Science Institute to know what the creatures were. Later, Mustang Island State Park shared images of the rare creature on its Facebook account, saying these are also called spaghetti monsters or thread-jellies.
