Sea Creature Washes Up On Russian Beach!

We always get terribly excited here at Foxsylvania when any kind of globster washes up on any beach, anywhere. Set up some food stands and a good band, and you’ve really got something to break up the summer doldrums!



…the “sea monster” in question is described as being smelly and hairy, and at least three times the size of an average human. It washed up on the shore of the Bering Sea on the Pacific side of the Kamchatka Peninsula; from Russia with Love, Darlink! Although the unidentified thing appears to be from an animal with gray and white coloring, it lacks a defined head or other body parts other than a possible tail or tentacle. The creature is covered with tubular hair, which is hollow and similar to that found on a polar bear.

Some have speculated that the carcass could be the remains of a wooly mammoth that had washed up as glaciers thawed, while others suggest that it could be from an octopus or giant squid. The most likely theory, however, is that the carcass is indeed a globster, a term coined in 1962 to describe something that is not a complete animal, but rather the decaying parts of sea animals such as whales or sharks. Under the influence of time, the sea, and post-mortem predation, the remains of large sea animals often take on bizarre and unrecognizable forms.

So if you visit a beach and come upon a globster, resist the temptation to make a sandwich. It wouldn’t be good for you…

    I have to admit: the left-hand photo insert does make it look like a decomposing squid. With those two lateral projections quite possibly being head fins!*

    Much as I want to believe in gigantic marine cryptids (like the St. Augustine lusca and the Phantom Bloop-er), I still have to remember the lesson of the Stronsay Beast.

    *Which usually double as rudders, if memory serves.

    Well, it could’ve been the guy who took over playing Zeus, from Sir Laurence Olivier, when they remade CLASH OF THE TITANS. But, honestly, I’m not too TAKEN with that idea ;-).

    People were wishing that it was Barney the Dinosaur, but the color isn’t right. We’ll get a “name that thing” contest going, while we sing “I’m just wild about Hairy…”

    Notice that the man shown is following the first rule of encounter with an unknown thing presumed dead; poke it with a stick! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Evidently, he never saw ISLAND OF TERROR with Peter Cushing.
