A scary-looking sea creature with what many people are calling "horns" was discovered at Luis Siret Beach in Villaricos, Spain, on Thursday. The problem is, no one seems to know exactly what it is.
The decomposing creature is reportedly about 13 feet long. The mysterious find has led to bizarre theories that is could be the Loch Ness Monster, a sea dragon or even a water dinosaur.

However, according to GrindTV, the best guess from experts so far is an oarfish:
“It’s hard to know what we’re dealing with,” A PROMAR (Programa en Defensa de la Fauna Marina-Sea Life Defense Program) spokesman Paco Toledano told Ideal.es Ameria, according to 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.”
