- On Friday, Jeff Warren and his son were boating on the Georgia coast when they came across the carcass of a mysterious dead sea creature
- The dead creature’s carcass closely resembles the Loch Ness Monster or a prehistoric Plesuisaur
- Experts so far have been stumped about the creature’s identity
The carcass of a dead sea creature which recently washed up on a Georgia beach is drawing parallels to the Loch Ness Monster.
Jeff Warren took pictures and video of the mysterious sea creature while out boating with his son around Wolf Island National Wildlife Refuge on Friday.
Warren told News 4 Jax that at first he thought the carcass was a dead seal when he saw a heron pecking at it.

The dead creature has drawn comparisons to the legendary Loch Ness Monster
But when they got closer, he saw that the dead creature more closely resembled a ‘Loch Ness-type thing’.
With its long neck and small head, the animal has also drawn comparisons to the prehistoric Plesiosaur, an extinct species of large marine reptile.
Dan Ashe, the director of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services, told the outlet that sometimes basking sharks can begin to resemble Plesiosaurs as their bodies decompose.

Locals in Georgia have a Loch Ness of their own – the Altamaha-ha. The Altamaha-ha is a river monster who lurks in the Altamaha River, just west of where the carcass was found
When the photos of the creature started going viral, social media users also pointed out that it looked like the mythical Altamaha-ha – a river monster who lurks in the Altamaha River, just west of Wolf Island. Skeptics pushed the theory that the corpse may be a fake, placed ahead of next week’s April Fool’s Day.
More practical social media users said it also resembles a frilled shark.
DailyMail.com has reached out to several experts for their opinions on the mysterious sea creature’s identity, but is waiting to hear back.
