Shocking pictures of a Loch Ness Monster-type beast found on a U.S. beach have sparked talk Nessie could have moved stateside.
The mystery creature was reportedly found on Wolf Island, Georgia, by a father and son who were out on a boat trip, The Sun reported.
Jeff Warren (father) spotted what he said he thought was a dead seal lying in the surf, according to First Coast News.
But after getting close to the deceased creature, Warren said it became clear he had no idea what the animal was.
Warren said the creature was lying in the sand and being eaten by birds when he arrived.
It appears to have a long tail and two fins, as well as a long neck and a tiny head — features usually associated with the famed Loch Ness Monster. Warren states that the creature was roughly 3 to 6 feet long.
Experts have so far been unable to positively identify the animal from the photos and video footage.
Dan Ash, director of the Fish and Wildlife Service, told Action News Jax that some sea animals have a way of decomposing where they can resemble a prehistoric creature.
He said a 9-meter basking shark can end up looking like it had a long neck and tiny head.
The “creature” could also be nothing more than a simple hoax…but a good one at that.
Warren said he was later told about a local legend named “Alty”, or Altahama — Georgia’s own version of the Loch Ness monster.
