I wish he had taken some more close up pics of the head and neck.

Its kind of foolish to assume we know of everything that is living in our oceans.
Who assumes that? No scientists do since they discover and publish new sea species every single month.

The smell of decomposition isn't the only stink hovering around this carcass.

Thanks for info. I don’t see anything about deleted Facebook or missing body though. No body and no returned phone call as of yet...

That's from a different location, didn't give the link:

Quote:
Paul Medders, who works with the agency’s Marine Education and Public Outreach arm, said the agency hasn’t been able to find the carcass. Medders said the high tide could have washed it back out to sea.

The agency hasn’t been able to get in touch with Warren or with anyone else who’s seen the creature. “A Facebook account belonging to Jeff Warren was originally tagged in the photos, but that tag was later removed and then the account went offline,” Medders said.

Dose was unable to contact Warren.

Gee, who would have thought the body simply disappeared? LOL

Eels are snake-shaped except for the fins. Eels do NOT have flippers. This is likely a latex-and-tinfoil fake but it sure looks plesiosauric to me!

Yea, I mean things on the beach never get washed out again.


Apparently you aren't so cynical about the person who allegedly found it. All he needed to do was get a 1cm cubed portion of it for DNA analysis. But that was too hard apparently.

Maybe one of the props from the new AQUAMAN movie got away and washed up in Georgia?

So, you're walking down a beach and you come across a dead baby plesiosaur you do what?

a) Take one crappy picture of it and walk away.

b) Take multiple pictures of it, video with your cell phone, drag it up past the tide line and call the media and some friends to bring you a big arse storage bin an 80lbs of ice.

Because hey, if it's real....it's only worth what? 10 mil? 20 mil? More?

The movie rights, book, interviews and let's not forget tickets to see the plesiosaur at $20 a pop at Sea World or Disney etc.

So what would you do if you found that?

To be fair, there is a video. Not a good video, I'll grant you, but there is a video:

It didn't occur to Warren to take a few steps and get a closer look at the "body"? Or walk around it to film from all angles? That seems pretty suspicious to me.
