The ocean and the sea are the natural habitat for all if not most sea creatures, but to see the remains of a sea creature washed up on the shore is not a common thing to see. It’s not everyday that you see this kind of thing but when this happened it sent chills down the spine of residents living nearby.

The remains of an unidentified sea creature washed ashore at Hulung Beach in Indonesia. Local residents don’t seem to know what kind of fish it is. It measures 49 feet long and weighs approximately 35 tons. Unfortunately, the sea creature was already dead, and its blood turned the water red.

We can’t imagine what must have happened to the poor thing.

Locals say that the creature could be a giant squid or a sperm whale, but experts say it looks like a baleen whale. They point out that the mysterious creature appears to have bones and ventral grooves, which is a stretchy tissue found on some species of baleen whales.

It’s unclear how this animal died, but one thing is for sure, residents can’t wait to get the stinky mass off of their beach.
