A horned monster carcass has washed up on a beach in Spain and it has scientists stumped, as this doesn't look like any fish with horns known to mankind, according to “Fox and Friends” live on Friday morning Aug. 21. Curious beach goers who want a gander at the horned monster have to brave the horrendous stench coming from this dead carcass to get anywhere near it.
NBC News reports that this horned monster may never be identified. Experts have weighed in with a few possibilities, but nothing fits the bill completely for this dead discovery when searching the database of marine wild life. Some suggest an oarfish, others have suggested a shark, but both possibilities fall short of looking exactly like these suggestions.
The horned monster was in “advanced stages of decomposition,” reports Maria Sanchez, Civil Protection Coordinator. The carcass washed up in the village of Villaricos in Andalusian on Luiw Siret Beach putting a bit of damper on the summer beach outings for folks if they were down wind from the horned sea creature.
The horned monster washed up in a few pieces so the authorities picked up the stragglers along with the huge 13-foot body of the creature. NBC News updated their information later in the day to say that an expert from Florida State University, who is a specialist on the biology of fish species thinks he knows just what this dead sea creature is.
Dean Grubs, believes the horned monster is the carcass of a dead shark. He believes the decomposing shark has its scapulocoracoids exposed, which look like horns. They are a part of a shark's body that support the pectoral fins in a shark. Grubbs, who didn't examine the dead carcass, made his observations from a picture of the horned monster.
