Fishermen at the popular surfers’ beach of Destiladeras told local media it could have come from deep in the Pacific Ocean.
Mexican media couldn’t identify exactly what the creature is
The discovery of the stranded beast – with a strange tail similar to an eel’s – took place in Punta Mita, in the western Mexican state of Jalisco which is on the Pacific coast, reports Tribuna De La Bahia.
With its dolphin-like head and sharp teeth, but lacking any flippers, it apparently startled many people.
Tribuna said that the “strange creature” was found dead and “caused a furore on social media” and among residents.
It was said to have been discovered at Destiladeras, a beach popular with surfers and sunbathers in Punta Mita
It was reported to have been discovered by a group of people walking along Destiladeras beach.
Initially, it was assumed to be a dead dolphin until they got closer, and realised it was something entirely different.
For example, the animal did not have any eyes, prompting locals to predict that it may well have come from deep in the Pacific Ocean where no light penetrates and eyes are not necessary.
