A strange creature has washed up on a beach in Mexico leaving residents baffled as to what it could be.
The creature appears to have the head of a dolphin but the tail of a tadpole. It has sharp, fanged teeth but no eyes – prompting speculation it has emerged from the deep waters of the Pacific Ocean where no light penetrates and eyes aren’t needed.
Locals found the bizarre creature on the Destiladeras beach on the Pacific coast of Mexico, but as yet nobody has been able to identify it.
Initially, people thought it was a dead dolphin until they got closer and realized it was something completely different. None of the locals interviewed by local media could recall ever seeing anything like it before.
However, they mentioned that in Puerto Vallarta, there is a marine area more than a thousand meters deep.
They speculated that it could have been the home of the strange creature.
Local media confirmed that no one had been able to identify the strange animal, but there were also no reports in the media suggesting that it was a fake.
