Unidentified Creature Washed Up in San Diego – What is it?

Posted by By Justin at 3 February, at 10 : 06 AM Print

This week, a the corpse of a rotten dead animal washed up on the beach in San Diego, California. People are still trying to figure out what it is, and of course the internet starting trying to guess what it is, and a lot of people are saying it’s some sort of monster or demon.


Of course, it’s far more likely to be something really boring. My guess is, it’s a Mexican Wild Pig, which is a little-known species of hog or boar that exists in Mexico and Central America. These pigs have downward facing tusks, while most wild boar species have their tusks facing upwards, or at least the largest tusks face upwards with the smaller ones facing downwards.

Some people thought it was a possum – obviously those people have rather hilariously never seen a possum in their life – otherwise they would have known that it is far too big to be a possum and the face looks nothing like one at all.


What do you think this bizarre and rather scary looking creature could be?

    some kind of canine – the hair most likely looks as such due to the ocean ‘sanding’ off what was on the raised part of the skull in the surf and hadn’t yet been able to reach to crease in the center… can’t be to old otherwise the flesh would be gone from rot or being eaten by sea critters

      I think it is a canine of some sorts it could even by crazy chance be washed up from the tsunami in japan but it is more possibly a canine or dog related animal/creature the hair does look glued but that tends to happen when something with no other hair is in the water for a long period of time the hair could also be sun bleached or salt bleached from the water magnifying the sun or the saltwater cleaning the color out of it so it could be a canine or pig or some unknown japanese creature that until now was un discovered

    this isn’t real:

    1. eyes are plastic
    2. you can see a cotton lining under the hair
    3. no ribs
    4. the teeth are unnaturally attached to the gum
    5. it’s bone dry
