I'm sure experts are examining it, but the known creature in an advanced state of decay is the most probable explanation.

Remember this? This was another "probable pleisiosaur" that turned out to be a basking shark.

The basking shark is a sloppy mess. I hope this latest one is further examined and they follow up. Can’t find information more than “probable”

Since when does advanced decomposition lead to necks growing longer?!

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.

Worth a DNA analysis or something like that. May just be a new unknown species not related to the dinosaurs. That would still be a big find.

It looks like a piece of seaweed, to me.

It looks like it's some sort of eel rather than the partial carcass of a decomposed shark or sea mammal. The reported size (5') is right for an eel.

Looks just like a plesiosaur to me. One way to find out. Wonder if anyone has done more than speculate

Until further analysis is available, there's not much anyone can do but speculate.

The fact that there is only 1 photo and none close up makes me more than a little suspicious.

There have been no calls to anyone about the supposed "monster", and Warren's the only one who has reported it. Local news has tried to contact him, but he's strangely not returning their calls and his Facebook account has been deleted. The "body" is gone. The smell of decomposition isn't the only stink hovering around this carcass.
