The rotting remains of a mystery sea creature have washed up on a remote Indonesian beach.

The amorphous carcass – measuring around 15metres long and several metres wide – was discovered by local resident Asrul Tuanakota on the northern shore of Seram Island in Maluku province, the Jakarta Globe reports.

Mr Tuanakota, 37, initially thought the huge sea creature was a stranded boat when he found it on Tuesday night.

Since then, residents have flocked to Hulung Beach to see the bloated and discoloured mass for themselves.

Baffled locals have speculated that the creature may be a giant squid or the remains of a whale.

Residents have asked authorities to help remove the decaying remains.

  1. Biggest squid I’ve ever seen is in New Zealand’s national museum, Te Papa Tongarewa. It was fished up in the southern ocean and not in great condition by the time the boat got home, but it was preserved anyway and is on public display. Scientifically interesting (I have to admit, I did say ‘well, that’d make a lot of calamari’ when I saw the tank – it’s sealed, but somehow there’s still a formaldehyde aroma around it). The possibility of bigger squid can’t be discounted, but this Indonesian find will need proper investigation to determine what it actually is.

      Thanks for your comment. I am more concerned about what made such a creature die…lack of oxygen in the ocean or something else but that is NOT a good sign
