Sakhalin Sea Monster

The remains of an unidentified sea animal with fur on its tail have been washed ashore in the Far East. Found near the airport at Shakhtersk, on Sakhalin Island, its appearance is unlike anything ever found in Russia. Judging from the remains the creature was giant and about twice the length of a human, and it had a huge nose like a bird’s beak.

Nikolay Kim, deputy head of the Forecasting Department at the Sakhalin Research Institute of Fisheries and Oceanography, said he believed it to be "some big dolphin".


"According to a characteristic of the skin, it is a rare species," he said. "I doubt that it lived in our waters. Most likely, the animal was brought by a warm current."

Another expert from Essex University told The Daily Mail that the sea animal could be “pre-historic specimen frozen in the permafrost,” like a mammoth. The fur on this mysterious creature seems to quickly dispel the dolphin theory but the jury is still out on this one.
