The 15m-long creature was first spotted by 37-year-old local resident as reported. Asrul Tuanakota initially mistook the dead sea creature for a boat in the dark, but was quick to realise that it was something much stranger.


Looking like some kind of mythical sea monster, the cause of the death seems a mystery. It is thought to have passed away at least three days prior to washing up on the shore.


Originally thought to be a giant squid, others have posited it might be another creature entirely. A co-ordinator of Indonesia’s Marine and Coastal Resources Management said it was likely to be a whale. The lab tests are underway to confirm the species.


Meanwhile this has become a tourist attraction and locals are flocking to Hulung Beach in West Seram to see the mysterious remains.


It isn’t the first creature from the depths to leave spectators flummoxed. In July 2015, a beast with a ‘long beak’ and ‘furry tail’ reportedly washed up on a beach along the east coast of Russia.
