'Loch Ness Monster' Washes Up on Georgia Shore?

Could it really be Nessie?

PHOENIX -  

An unknown sea creature washed up on the shore of Georgia’s Wolf Island National Wildlife Refuge and people are very puzzled by it.

According to First Coast News, Jeff Warren was out on a boat ride with his son when they saw a bizarre looking carcass on the shore. At first glance, Warren thought it was a dead seal, but after taking the picture and getting a closer look, he described it as a “Loch Ness type thing.”

This creature has a long neck but a small head and it looks extremely slimy. It reminds locals of the Altamaha-ha, Georgia’s own version of the sea monster in Southern lore.

Even marine experts don’t know what to make of the photos and videos. Most of them are leaning toward some sort of shark creature.

Chantal Audran of the Tybee Island Marine Science Center told Savannah Now, “It looks like a frilled shark.” Mark Dodd of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources agreed with Audran but said that without a body to autopsy they can’t do a proper analysis.

Whether this creature is a seal or a shark, I’ll stick to believing it’s the Loch Ness monster.
