Local media claim it was found by two residents next to the River Kovashi in the Russian town of Sosnovy Bor, which was built in the 1950s to serve the Leningrad nuclear power plant. Biologist Yegor Zadereev, from the Institute of Biophysics in Krasnoyarsk, also said he was unable to tell what it was. He said: 'Extensive studies are needed to determine what kind of creature or organism it is.
