Something strange has washed ashore at Montauk Island, New York.
“This is an actual monster, some sort of rodent-like creature with a dinosaur beak. A tipster says that there is ‘a government animal testing facility very close by in Long Island,’” says Gawker in a posting for Tuesday, July 29, 2008.
Comments like “That’s a turtle, without its shell,” make no sense because of the teeth. Some fossil turtles had teeth, but no modern turtles possess real teeth.
What is this animal?
Why can’t people put some sort of size reference object in these mystery photos? How big is this thing?
For now, it remains the “Montauk Monster.”
