sea creature in Spain

A mysterious sea creature has washed up onshore in Villaricos, Spain, leaving everyone scratching their heads. A woman found the decomposing carcass on the beach early Thursday, according to a report on ThinkSpain.com.

“A lady found one part and we helped her retrieve the rest,” said Maria Sanches of Civil Protection in Cuevas. “We have no idea what it was. It really stank.” The carcass sprouts shattered bones (which some mistook for horns) on one end and is about 13 feet long.
