It’s a whale! It’s a shark! It’s…probably a whale.

A mysterious, giant aquatic entity recently washed up on the shores of Guangdong, located in South East China. According to 3 expert marine biologists who looked at the photo of the sea-monster, they determined from the ‘throat grooves’ that it may be a fin whale — however, they weren’t completely sure because it seemed smaller than usual.

In addition, the carcass is so badly decomposed that it’s hard to tell — so there’s still a chance this 55-foot creature may in fact be some sort of sea beast! (A girl can dream)

Sadly, the carcass was also covered in remnants of a fishing net — which means at some point, the beast was likely caught, but then cut free when fisherman realized it was too big to reel in (or it just busted through like a BOSS). But hopefully this had nothing to do with the actual death of the ‘whale’.

The marine biologists are hoping that someone collects a tissue and bone sample for genetic analysis.
