Strange Creature Found On Russian Coastline Baffles Locals

print this print      Bookmark and Share   RSS 2.0 feed

SAKHALIN, Russia -- This creature was found by Russian soldiers on Sakhalin shoreline. Sakhalin area is situated near to Japan. It’s the most eastern part of Russia, almost 5,000 miles to East from Moscow.

Locals haven't been able to identify the mysterious beast. According to the bones and teeth - it is not a fish. According to its skeleton - it’s not a crocodile or alligator. It has a skin with hair or fur.

It has been said that it was taken by Russian special services for in-depth studies, and we are lucky that people who encountered it first made those photos before it was brought away.

I think it might of been a creature that lived in the waters in the days of the Dinos.

I think it might be one of the many dinosaur species that never have gone extinct. The earth is, after all, only 6,000 years old not 4.6 billion. And because of this dinosaurs are still around they are just very rare.
   comment# 8   - Jon · Anchorage Ak · Nov 18, 2006 @ 9:09am

I agree with Jon from AK, Earth is not as old as we have been taught to think. This may be a creature that lives deep, deep within the ocean and somehow made it to the surface. We have no idea what truly lurks within the ocean's deepest, darkest places.

Surely this could not be a marine mammal.

Holy scat, what's that? I suppose it's a very old creature.
   comment# 11   - Garez · Porto, Portugal · Nov 22, 2006 @ 6:53pm

It's just a whale skeleton. Nothing major. The exact species i'm not sure, but look at any picture of many whale species skeleton and you can clearly see it is.

I have no idea what it is, but alot of strange things have been going on lately. I wouldn't be suprised if it was a dragon or some type of alienic creature. I hope they keep us updated and not try to hide it like everything else.

would really like to know what they find out. i home school my kids and we came across this article while looking up something else and we would love to know, what it really is. it really is very strange!!!
   comment# 19   - mary ann johnson · kansas city kansas usa · Dec 12, 2006 @ 10:24am

Perhaps it is something which was stuck in ice and unthawed due to global warming.
   comment# 20   - Shell · Louisville, Kentucky · Dec 15, 2006 @ 11:44am

How could anyone possibly believe that the earth is only 6,000 years old? That tells me there is something seriously wrong with both their education and their thought processes.
   comment# 21   - Jim Smith · João Pessoa, Brazil · Dec 16, 2006 @ 11:30am

   comment# 22   - Sue Jamasem · Helmut, US · Dec 25, 2006 @ 2:03pm

The earth is proven to be older than 6,000 years old. Maybe you should not pay attention to your holy book, and pay attention to real science
   comment# 23   - steve · atlanta, GA · Dec 26, 2006 @ 10:32am

This body is only a few thousand years old. But it appears to have been locked in the ice by the look of the thing. This probably came from one of the ice shelves, which are quickly melting.
   comment# 24   - John Terry · New York, USA · Jan 1, 2007 @ 9:29am

I personally think that the creature belongs to the deep sea. After all, look at the coelacanth a prehistoric fish thought to be extinct 65 million years ago and now a living fossil, that goes to show that instead of spending billions and billions of dollars on exploring out side this planet why not spend that on exploring what is still to be a great mystery to us on our planet the depths of the sea.
   comment# 25   - sara · puerto rico · Jan 2, 2007 @ 6:23pm

Hmmmm. A creature from the Deep would not have fur or hair.
   comment# 26   - Toby · USA · Jan 4, 2007 @ 11:04am

The earth is only 6k years old? That is funny. I don't kow what it is. The photos strategically leave out any features that could lead to identification.
   comment# 27   - Don · Orlando, USA · Jan 7, 2007 @ 11:10pm

its a birdlike creature.. (looks like a vulture ^.^)
   comment# 28   - senshow · Sweden Sthlm · Jan 19, 2007 @ 7:52am

It looks like a whale's skeleton of some kind to me. No nostrils on its "snout" (as they'd be on its 'forhead'which is covered by the seaweed/skin etc) and the shape of the head really looks like a toothed whale.. and the body/tail, check out the link from Ryan · Flagstaff, AZ. Wish it was something more fantastic but I get the feeling it's.. just a very dead whale.
   comment# 29   - tam · canada · Jan 24, 2007 @ 4:41pm

I think it's a close relative of the Beluga whale. The Earth 6K old? That's a good one. The ice shelf thaw and release theory sounds feasible though. I reckon it's a whale, due to the lack of nostrils. the stuff around it isn't reliable.
   comment# 30   - Stewart · Adelaide, Australia · Jan 29, 2007 @ 8:08am

It is a beluga whale
   comment# 31   - tom deck · usa · Jan 31, 2007 @ 10:12am

It's probably another one of those "living fossil" creatures that we haven't seen a lot of. You know, we've seen coelacanths and frilled sharks...anything can happen. We could probably find that it is somehow related to the modern day beluga whale.
   comment# 32   - Bekah · Henderson, Nevada · Jan 31, 2007 @ 12:17pm

eh it doesnt matter because its not alive but it would be good to know what it is
   comment# 33   - gabriel ahnee · waipahu , hawaii · Feb 3, 2007 @ 7:28pm

i just saw a video on aol about some creature that looked kinda like that, that they found it in Japan they said that it was a very old type of shark. and the japanese people found a live one and took it in captivity, but it died a few hours after they captured it

It is absolutly an gator or croc. look at how long it is and the mouth and skin.

   comment# 42   - darien · stirling hights, United States · Feb 17, 2007 @ 8:02pm

Jon ·Anchorage Ak. The earth is about 4.5 billion years old give or take a few million. Humans are around 6000 - 10000 years old. That's not a croc cause the head isnt the right size and shape, it dosent have nostrals, there dosent seem to be a place for the eyes and the teeth dont look right. I wouldnt say its prehistoric cause the soft tissue would have decomposed by now unless it was frozen or mummified. I dont see signs of ice or of mummification. I doubt its a whale casue they dont have tails like that. I'd say its either a deep sea animal. Or its the head of sum type of big land herbevoir and the tail of a croc thats been planted there.
   comment# 43   - Mist83 · Dublin Ireland · Feb 21, 2007 @ 7:35am

it looks like a crocodile, alligater sort of creature it definitly is not a shark!
   comment# 44   - LAUREN · United Kingdom · Mar 4, 2007 @ 9:02am

it's probably a hoax... the bones don't look like anything I've seen. The lack of a pelvis suggests something water-living. The vertebrae taper into the tail. The jaw is shaped right to be a small whale skull..but whatever it's been dead for a long time. I still think it's a hoax..until proven otherwise..
   comment# 45   - orcaholic · USA · Mar 4, 2007 @ 3:15pm

it appears to be a frill shark, one was recently dicovered of the coast of japan. The species at one time was thought to be extinct if I am correct.
   comment# 46   - vince cook · tupelo, ms usa · Mar 5, 2007 @ 9:38am

all of u take this to far its obviously a whale
   comment# 47   - karl · leicester england · Mar 10, 2007 @ 8:25am

Aha very funny, you all talk about it being some deep see creature but you've looked past the color or the tail, No deep sea creature would be bright yellow? Most creatures blend into there habitat and well this definatly aint a whale and whoever thinks it is needs to get their brains checked. That "thing" has some sort of beak/snout and well no whale has that, while you guys have already ruled out a croc or gator, because of the fur. In the pictures it almost looks as if it has a beak and attaches to the creatures head as for my idea of what it is, i have no idea.

it appears to be some sort of thing. the face skull is simular to that of the whale but has a few different features. guessing its just some ancient beast from the deep or from the high skies. let it be a mystery
   comment# 53   - inspector jim · Ohio, America · Apr 2, 2007 @ 11:42pm

Hahaha at Ron's comment. To me, it just looks like an alligator or crocodile... the skin with hair/fur could just be stuff from the ocean. But others say it's a whale skeleton, so who really knows for sure? :P
   comment# 57   - Casey · Denver, USA · Apr 10, 2007 @ 1:00pm

First off, its outrageous to believe the earth is only 6000 years old.Everyone with a brain knows it was created in only 7 days, by a great being playing with cosmic crayons,WTF?...So the earth must only be 7 days old. Making this creature a moronasourus...The long lost cousin to every dumbass who believes anything they read online.My personal opinion would have to be, its the body of Jimmy Hoffa. He was an alien imposter and when he was killed by Elvis, who came from the future riding on a unicorns back, he was locked away in Davey Jones Locker and guarded by Nessie. Who coincidentally, enjoys long walks on the beach with the abominable snowman. Now, Im sure Santa Claus and the easter bunny would have some objections to this theory but the tooth fairy will gladly substanciate my claims. Meanwhile, God is looking down on us all and laughing because he made this whole story up just to mess with our heads and I,m here to deliver the message to you. Grow up and stop being so naive.

   comment# 61   - loch ness · inverness · Apr 16, 2007 @ 4:26am

The Earth is old. Adam and Eve did not ride dinosaurs; that was the Flinstones. The Bible did not give us penicillin, cars to drive us to Church, or the technical "magic" needed to make movies like "The Passion of the Christ". This creature, if it is not a hoax, EVOLVED. Science does NOT threaten religion. God CAUSED evolution (which we have plenty of evidence for and can see happening clearly in species with life spans much shorter than our's). Evolution is something we KNOW exists like Jesus knew that earth, wind, and water exist. Evolution is a FACT. If you keep denying it you deny one of God's acts. If you believe God created all FACTS you can add evolution to your list of them. Expect science to add a few more facts to that list you so fervently resist expanding...facts God created which you refuse to acknowledge in the name of your preconceived "god".

It's the carcass of a rare Beaked Whale. That's all. Seen one just like this before that was later identified as such.

"The earth is, after all, only 6,000 years old not 4.6 billion" The religious nuts with no mind of their own are going the way of the Dinosaurs. A form of evolution. The churches are losing their grasp. BTW looks like a hoax to me.

It looks like a Mosasaur, but it can't be if it has fur. Mosasaurs where marine reptiles. If you are interested you might look it up on google. The teeth are not right for a Mosasure though. That's interesting. Thanks.

I believe it could be a new species (for human's knowledge that is). We still haven't discovered everything in this world there is still more to discover. Maybe it could be an evolved plesiosaur!!!
   comment# 78   - Kavia · Bronx, New York · May 24, 2007 @ 6:34am

As a veterinary anatomist, I can tell you that this is a variation of a common species. Occasionally there is a rare polyploidy chromosomal disorder that results in what is similar to a combination of marfan's syndrome and acromegaly in humans. This is, in fact, and East Siberian brackish rat that had a rare disorder affecting pituitary function.
   comment# 79   - Dr. Steven Torkelgergen · NYU, New York City, NY, USA · May 25, 2007 @ 12:28am

it is a plesiosaur and it still has muscle and skin tissue so it must only be a week or 2 old (the carcas i mean) it is an amazing find. there must be more in the deepest part of the ocean. Dinosaurs are still alive!!!!!!!
   comment# 80   - Kasandra Moxxvilla · Hollywood, America · May 31, 2007 @ 7:08pm

there is no telling what this creature is. There is alot of things about earth that people still can't explain.It would be good to know if it were still alive.There might even be more these creatures.Lets just hope when they do find more that they dont cut them all up just to figure out what it is.
   comment# 81   - Joseph Mildner · lakeland, USA · Jun 4, 2007 @ 10:58am

the skull looks like it is a whale of some sort and the teeth it is probably a carnivore or is omnivorus but i think it is a wale the only kind of prehistoric creature that it could be is a mosasaur like tylosaurus wich could get up to 36ftbut looks more like a whale skeleton and not the lochness monster.

   comment# 84   - Sarah · Melbourne, FL · Jun 23, 2007 @ 2:16pm

This seems more like an opportunity to harrass anyone who believes the bible. Bible says that the earth is 6000 years old. So what. And no, God did not use evolution. Why would he, what kind of God needs to use an idea as ridiculous as evolution. The two concepts are opposite. Evolution is the idea that first there was nothing, and then it exploded. Creation is the idea that first there was God, and he created. This picture could be a number of things, there are two many things that we don't know about this picture to make an educated guess.

I would agree with the whale theory. Decomposing blubber often takes on a "hairy" appearance and carcass appears to be the right size to be an Orca. I doubt it's a hoax, many marine creatures look drastically different once decomposition has had its way with them.

The truth is, folks, we really don't know what this creature might be, so let's hope the people that have it will actually study it and learn something. By the way, thought I'd throw in with those who actually know how the earth is: 6,000 years young! Regardless of what the believers in "Evolvo-land" have been taught, evolution is just one interpretation of the evidence. It is a religious belief that actually struggles against science. I'm not going to take all your time on a site that is not on this subject, but you really should take a look at what the Bible has to say, and the evidence for it, before you reject it out of hand. That is, if you're not afraid that the belief that allows your lifestyle may be wrong. This isn't just something I came to in a moment. There is a lot of research out there that fits better with the Bible. Okay, I know that most of you are going to ignore reason and simply will throw proverbial "stones." But I don't mind. I've done my part, the rest is up to you. In Jesus' name, you've been given the chance to find out the truth.

Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, The Flying Spaghetti Monster, UFO's, the Tooth Fairy, and Bigfoot are also are very much real and deserving of your reverence. I think we should be spending more time researching these important branches of science. In Jesus' name Amen.

Apparently crazy people run searches for weird creatures. HUMANS are only 6k years old, maybe more. The earth is billions. 7 days theory only applies to the task and not time frame. The bible DOES NOT SAY THE WORLD IS 6,000 YRS OLD! Nowhere! Most people haven't read the bible, but someone some where told them something was in the bible, through interpretation of course. + the bible is 2k old. So 4,000 years of stuff made it through oral tradition unscathed? Read Gilgamesh, older than the bible and references the flood. Information is vital, old info is destroyed with the last religion by the next one. Gods and ideas vilified for propaganda. There is nothing wrong with the bible, but it is written the way it is because you are too stupid to get the whole picture all at once. In my opinion everything exists. This creature could be real but the pictures are too few. Fairy tales without science are just fairy tales. To say science is anti-god is just clown shoes.

I have read the Bible and found it to be full of contradictory nonsensical rubbish. I've found more answers on the back of a cereal box. This picture is clearly a toothed whale by the way. See here: Anyone still unclear on this is obviously bent on believing something else (such as farcical Bible stories).

We all think that they are monsters but they are small creatures that evolved may be evolutoin is taking in other animals which are all the time underwater or may be it had been eaten up by some other bigger creature which is more gigantic in size........

Looks like a whale. Obviously been down a long time, it's covered with barnacles. The "hair" is probably the rotted remnants of a net in which it was caught and perished. 6,000 yrs old? The freaking Sphinx is 10,000 yrs old (per latest research), and Stonehenge is older than 6,000. I think my husband has socks older than that as well. ;-)

Ok honestly, I agree with Lemmy the freakin cereal boxes have more answers than the bible truth be told man have been fighting over the writings in the bible for a long time now and people have even died over it. I personally don't know what that thing is and I will agree it looks like its from the dark crystal however we all know that is not possible but who's to say that there can not be a sea creature with some hairish substance on it I mean look at some seaweed in fresh water lakes it looks like green frizzy hair, and pretty much dries like that to. So who is to say it isn't a prehistoric creature that didn't have something like that maybe even growing on it, or from it. No stops to think about the land creatures such as the sloth it's fur "looks" green but it's not maybe this thing looks like it had fur but does not the fur or hair may even be some type of prehistoric parasite making look like its growing from the skin Logic!!! people Logic!!! religion has no part in this! And i'm a tree hugging pagan! *rolls eyes*

The earth is only 6000 yrs old i don't care what this creature is those of you who think we evolved from monkeys, well you may have thats why you still have the small brains to believe that the earth is billions of years old. There will be a day when you have to answer for your beliefs and i don't want to be standing beside you when that day comes. the entire world has lost faith and that is all that God really ask you to have. believe in Him and He will remember you!

yo this thing sure has got people going.....lets say this the thing is actually the devil who came to russia to take over the world. luckly enough people still belived that the world was only 6000 years old so the devil died and decomposed like a vampire on the beach. And once again the world was saved by religion and faith and all the super smart people who still belive. Ha ha right who cares what it is I dont think I could eat it.......well maybe with some a-1 or cocktail sauce. Funny thing though the reason I quit beliving the organized church....was sitting in bible study and ask, "if adam and eve named all the animals then how did they name the dinosaurs?" His reply"i dont know"...I think I was like 5. If anyone catches one alive send me a fillet.

It's a pig whale ancient sailor's told of hairy, pig resembling creatures in the water. they had long hair and swam through the water. and the earth is not close to six thousand years old. by carbon dating we have discovered that the dinosaur's were supposed to have died out 65 million year's ago.

hi i think that it is a creature from a deep dark cave that probly satarved to death or probly got hit by something or just was washed ashore by a big wave but i think it could be hybrid or something like that it looks like a bird that it flew high up in the skies and ate fish and maybe squid so thtas wat i think

if you look at its tail, it appears to have a serpentine motion, which means it swimms like a fish or reptile not a mammal. so its nothing like we have seen before.

Yea, it's definitely not a whale, due to its skin and the tail's ending. As for the dino or deep sea creature approach it could be. Though it could be one of the many species or creatures we still haven't discovered.

1) It's the decaying carcass of an Orca that washed ashore several months ago. What you think is hair is decayed flesh being eaten by seagulls and other beach carrion eaters. Could also be some seaweed thrown in too. 2) Sakhalin Island is in Orca waters. 3) Moses (Genesis' author) never said Earth was created in 6 literal days. He meant ERAS not days - duh! Also using Moses' birth and death records he recorded one can reverse extrapolate the 1st human couple's beginning at about the year 4,026 BCE. That's about 6k years ago. Organized religion screwed up the translation! YES the Earth is BILLIONS of years old. The universe started with a big bang from a supernatural sentient singularity - God? Non Intelligent Design evolution is illogical as there is too much complex and interdependent systems everywhere to be just a random accident especially with the total absence of missing links fossils. K.I.S.S. and Occam's Razor - Its not a Dino nor a monster its a simple Killer Whale carcass... And the Bible (Genesis) is not a science journal. Its a READER'S DIGEST version of creation. You blind Fundamentalist Christians need to mature up a bit in that department... And you blind Evolutionists need to jump off of the science bandwagon too... Charlie Darwin was on a mission of RACIST genetic 'thinning of the human herd' NOT looking for the true origin of species... Just look at the WHOLE title of his 19th century book! Jeez!
   comment# 127   - Spooky · Connecticut · Dec 5, 2007 @ 2:10pm

BTW that's NOT it's tail... That's it's backbone. Notice the real tail, dorsal fin, and bottom fins have been either rotted or eaten away. The teeth are not big because it is a senior citizen Orca. The teeth have been worn down with age. There is no nostrils as Orca's have a blow-hole just under that hairlike mess. The mandible meets in the front at a point just like an Orca's would. The rib cage is buried under the sand or has since been broken off. It probably died of old age! It's a Killer Whale carcass...

   comment# 129   - Stephen · Gordon,NE · Dec 24, 2007 @ 7:23pm

the Biblical account of creation in Genesis means 6 literal days. scholars agree the word for day meant nothing more,nothing less. the bible is true, & man's arrogance will keep him trusting in his own 'science', instead of the real truth-God's Word. this is a creature that was mucg more common before noah's flood, as were most dinosaurs. watch kent hovind's seminars on creation science, dinos & the Bible, & the age of the earth. you can download them for free at secular scientists base most of thier theories on flawed logic. carbon dating is terribly flawed, as dr. hovind explains in his seminars. the evidence for a young earth is much more convincing to me, than for evolution. I once believed that evolution was correct & that the Bible was simbolic/metaphoric. I was wrong. we as a society have been programmed to accept certain lies as the truth. I have even contacted a missionary who states that he knows villagers who are aware of an animal they call 'urufere', & will not venture into it's territory out of fear. what they describe is a stegasauraus. look for the Truth with an open mind, & you will find.

For the creator, the earth would only be 7 days old- day of rest - imagine what will happen when the creator wakes and sees what has become of that misty little blue, green and sparkly white planet with fire and lighting tucked away at the end of the Milky Way... there could be hell to pay.

Perhaps is stead of attacking Jon we could be respectful of his beliefs? Jon, I am a Christian and I feel you may have been taught a very typical type od doctrine based on some flawed math and guess by very well meaning holy men from several hundred years ago. As a Christian we need to understand that various texts and writings come from men and what they know and can understand at the time. Our God given intelligence makes is incumbent upon us to continually look at the world around us with the facts we are given. Science has neither proven or disproven the existence of God, but has given new lenses to look through. The creation stories we know actually follow the natural order of evolution and the creations of Earth. The stories we read are told to men (most argue Moses)and shared in a manner with which men of the age could best understand. Weather you want to argue intelligent design or not evolution is something we need to survive. Just as Darwin was a devout Christian and responsible scientist we should be responsible stewards of our ability to learn and understand and apply that in all facets of our daily lives. That said, it does look like an incomplete whale skeleton to me. That would explain the hair I guess.
   comment# 152   - JD · NJ,USA · Apr 2, 2008 @ 2:19pm

I'm pretty sure that it will end up being an Orca skeleton. From the photos I've seen it seems pretty clear. Second, I dont understand why people would get on a scientific website and try and change peoples beliefs by preaching about got. Sit there and sya all you want about people in science believing all these so called "LIES". But Christians do the same thing every time they got to church. There is a reason church and state were separated. I dont know about anyone else in here, but for me, if I want to read about God I'll go to the Church of Satan website. I'm here to read about science. So leave all preaching at home. I'm more interested in what some intelligent people has to say about this creature. Not the opinions of a bunch of hipocratic jesus lovers.

   comment# 154   - Joseph · Berlin, Germany · Apr 8, 2008 @ 10:34am

It's like the mammal dragons...aka dragons mainly from the waters. Even though not many believe in dragon except for those living on land, our culture bases it on dragons who decieve others of how they look like and in turn, they transform themselves to unpredictable creatures of different figures so they won't uncover how they really look like by i guess they call it mutation, but of course mutation can't occur so rapidly which is why not many people believe it to be true. Water dragons for example need to be seen to believe for some people because they have never seen any for real, but when they do...some either believe it to be true or they reject it entirely and say it's something else. Knowing that there are creatures out in the open or not, the world is not fully discovered yet and of course, there are more than most people think. For those who do believe that, look forward to it because in time, you never know when you will be able to catch a glimpse of that glory you caught with your eyes. Hopefully, people won't mistake it for something else but the creature itself. Not that this topic even comes close to this subject, but kind of familiarize itself with it is that people who see fairies may not be seen by others. Same concept for people who think these creaures are whales, or orcas..or something else is not their fault for theorizing, but given little effort, they may know more than the ordinary and give them some prop for trying. Ordinary people can

The teeth are very similar to orca, more than beluga, but the spine is not right. With the stuff they call hair, it is not possible to see sinus cavity area. Also, neither cetacean has hair.

It is amazing how much people want to believe, either in God(s), fairy tales or monsters from the sea! 1-James Ussher calculated almost 500 years ago from the Bible that Earth had been created in the year -4004 on the 23rd of November at noon. Which is alright if you believe that Abraham and many others lived well over 100 years old. And that God either created Woman more than once or that Eve was incestuous. Ussher also predicted that the World will end on the 23rd of November 1997 at noon. Oops!! That much for precision! 2- Carbon 14 does not date things as old as the dinosaurs, not even close, other numerous methods and techniques do. Do the research yourself. You'll find science a truly enlightening world. 3- Homo habilis is more than 2 Million years old, Homo sapiens is 100,000 years old at least. Dated scientifically, repeatedly, by several methods. Not written "definitely" in a book revised every time "God" spoke to let us know he changed his mind. 4- Pick-up some random bones, arrange them neatly on a beach, hide the parts easily identifiable under worn out blankets and bear skins, take pictures, play with them on Photoshop, upload on the Net. Fun guaranteed for more than a year! Get a life! Use your brain, no matter how little you have, for something that really matters. Like making sure that the Earth and people on it will live on for another few thousand years.

I'll bet it is just a mutation of a crocadille and it got some hair, the after days of rotting people found it and thought it might be something special, but hay thanks for sharing the pics, the creature is pretty kick rear orifice.

This is kind of weird. It hasn't been discovered yet, so would proabably live down deep. But it has fur, indicating a mammal, so that couldn't be the case. And the beak just plain has me baffled. Oh, and the earth is scientifically proven to be more than 6,000 years old. If it was that young, we wouldn't exist, we wuld be much farther behind in evolution.
   comment# 181   - Ted Bobbery · NYC, USA · May 18, 2008 @ 6:22am

Earth is not proven to be older than 6,000 years all our history dates back that far. Also I seen them analyze and object and look at it, all they do is check it over for hours. Than they "PREDICT!!!" Do you see that predict? That its been that old or made that long ago now stop saying Earth is older than 6,000 years when we got no proof or history of it dating that far back.

You guys just crack me up. The bible is a good book, in the sense that it teaches morals and good nature(sometimes) but to use it as 'proof' that the world is 6000 years old is unlogical beyond being funny. The story of jesus is an adaption of the old Egyptian story of Horus, which was taken by the Israelites when they left Egypt. They were held as slaves so wanted nothing to do with the Egyptians so changed a few minor details, but in basic terms it is just an astrological story of the alignment with the star sign Aquarius. The end. Oh and plus the picture is of a badly decaying toothed whale, just look in any whale anatomy book. Its time that america stops filling the heads of its children with unlogical blind faith, before it consumes us all. Peace

These gotta be the same people who give money to TV avangelist. Geez, explain Coelacanths then, oh wait, it's not in the Bible, must not exist then, even though it's on the endangered species list and it's existed millions of years.....hello, educate yourself fool.

I think it's an orca or a beaked whale. It doesn't look like a beluga enough. The skeleton matches orca & beaked much more. But who knows, it's possibly a new spiecies. As for the earth being 6k, I believe it's true. I believe there isn't enough evidence to say that evolution is real. Saying there's a God who created everything makes so much more sense than the earth just appearing out of thin air, then life just spontaneously jumping from goo, to a living, complicated organism. It's like trying to put a lego set together by just stuffing the pieces into a box, then shaking it around. Nothing will happen, it's not possible. If you really want to believe in evolution, fine. But just remember that you'd better be ready to face the concequences when the time comes. Personally, I'd be insulted to say I evolved from a monkey. Or that this whale-creature-thing came from a pile of goo.

Hello all, sorry to be a barer of bad news. I have recreated such a creature in my toilet after a feasting of chipotle mega burritos. Actually, that might be one of the fecal creatures I have created on a cruise around the Alaskan region a year ago. Guess it made its way over to Russia.

   comment# 191   - M. Long · USA · Jun 1, 2008 @ 12:07am

Ok, we are all here because we want to learn about this creature, right? Well then why are we having these religious arguments? Why can't people just express their opinions? Let's face it, people in the world all have different points of views and nobody can truly change that. So just let it be! By the way, I think it could be some sort of whale because of the way it's skull is. The alleged "Fur" on it is probably stuff from the ocean, and the thing looks like it has been dead for a while, so that's what gives it it's grotesque appearence. I think that the reason why the "fur" actually looks like it is on the body is that the stuff that got caught onto the dead whale as it floated to the surface rotted with the animal. Or it could be a completely new species that we haven't discovered yet. I mean, look at the Frilled Shark and Coelecanth ;)

Evolution is a brilliant and groudbreaking idea, would you have thought of it.

Well, it's definitely not identical, or even similar, to the now-famous "Montauk Monster" that washed up on a beach near that eponymous Long Island fishing town. For one thing, this creature's snout is longer and non-hooked. Makes me wonder if it might be a decomposed dolphin, or beaked whale.* *Officially, the "Beast of Stronsay" (a Scottish island in the North Sea) was a decomposed basking shark.

It's a beluga whale folks--right down to the serpantine tail. The flukes and fins are soft cartilidge and muscle and will rot away. As others have stated that animals take on the coloring around them (not always the case) and this has yellow flesh. The Beluga is white--add some discoloration due to decomposition and we have yellow. Look at this

It is NOT a whale of any species. In the pectoral fins, there are finger bones. Toothed whales have conical teeth, close together and conical all the way back. The rear teeth close to the pharyngeal region of this animal (if it is real) are molariform. This animal (if it is real) most likely was not a meat eater. Would sure love to be in the room as the bones are reassembled (if it is real) and studied by the experts, of which none of us are!!! I suspect a clever hoax.

I think it is a small whale. Not a fraud or hoax but a decaying whale that certainly looks a little weird. The skeleton, minus absent legs/arms, does make it look like a dinosaur of some sort.

Has anyone bothered looking at pictures (2) and (5) there is a big difference in length and bone structure also i would think the ice shelf theory would be most correct for those believers as there is still skin on this creature picture (1). but to be honest this thing is screaming one big rear orifice hoax! and to prove that! compare the type of bone from the bone mass of the skeleton to its skull they don't barely match up on a calcium or iron index chart, also i thought these photos were taken by soldiers? so tell me why there are two civilians in picture (5)? my point proven its a hoax by the russians read the caption as it quotes "SAKHALIN, RUSSIA -- This creature was found by Russian soldiers on Sakhalin shoreline. Sakhalin area" -"It has been said that it was taken by Russian special services for in-depth studies, and we are lucky that people who encountered it first made those photos before it was brought away." to blow the ice shelf theory out of the water also why is our friends teeth not black? ok so everyone think on that and you russian folk stop bull shitting!

definitely a dragon or griffin, hope this clears things up :) oh- and the world is around some thousands of years old, not millions or billions by any means. The reason those things we find date back to "3.4 billion years ago" is because we use (mainly) a technique known as carbon dating- which can only date the residual carbon left behind in any biological or living object. Besides: the only thing carbon dating can really do is tell us that something is OLDER than the ground around it... do you really think we've developed a device that just KNOWS "HEY! THIS BONE'S 400 MILLION! AND THAT ONE'S 3498 billion!!" sheesh... scientists can GUESS too, right? Not to nit-pick, but there are plenty of things in this world that we simply CANNOT know; such as the age of the planet that we've been on ever since we can remember- and the species of that well worn corpse.

it is probably a new speaseas but those of you who think the earth is billions of years old need your head examind. "Evolution" is a HOAX and darwin acnoligas that manny things are rong with his thery, sutch as the posibilaty of eyes evolving and such.Besides that we know now that the earth would be in searios truble becouse of the moon geting further of in recent years,it would droun all the dinos and the earth is slowing down witch means it wase way faster billions of years ago so billions of years ago all the dinos would have flown off into space and all the life forms would be DEAD!!

I think that it could a dinosour. The earth really isn' that old and we are still continueing to find speicies after speicies of creature we all thought were extinct all the time.

   comment# 282   - Jessica. · Hartlepool, England · Mar 19, 2009 @ 9:06am

Its obviously a beluga whale, it's just a little ditearated. As for the skin/fur, it's just seaweed,garbage, ect. Stop tryiong to make it a big deal. Sure there's different kinds of creatures not known to man, and they are out there somewhere. If everyone exagerates like this each time someone discovers something..... then maybe everyone is not ready to see what is ment to be seen. Oh yea.. I'm a logical stoner, so dnt be upset.

judging by the look of it,it could have been a baby basilosaurus,the bones don,t seem to be that old so this baby basilosaurus or what ever creature it is didnt die to long ago, mabye even 200 years or less.slight chance its a hoax but unlikely due to the fact that the ocean is so big,so deep,soo dark,and as far as mankind knows almost unexplorable.

I think a lot of you are just insane (or paranoid). It's obviously a species of fish that found its way to the surface or was frozen and then thawed out. You can tell by the beak-like nose that it was just some sort of ancient ocean-dweller like a sturgeon.

Well, any updates on the creature?Since its press release in 2006, nothing have been said about it.Please Russian Special services, do tell us what it is! Maybe it's a mutated baby whale which cant survive in the ocean because it has long fur/hair which disable it to swim efficiently, hence, died by drowning.

Hey guys, google at killer whale's skeleton and you'll see 100% the same as the skeletal remains at the photos. It's a decomposing mid sise killer whale that has been washed out from shore and died.There' nothing strange with this.Killer whale's head skull is actually smaller than it looks that make it look like a skull of a different animal.

I agree with Vic, it looks alot more like a mid sized Orca. The skull is a near perfect match, and not fat enough to be a frill shark. The body area is in too bad shape to tell how big is, but its definately too fat to be a frill shark, they are thin, like eels. I have no definate answer, only an opinion, and thats what it looks like.

   comment# 319   - Ahmad Najib · Indonesia · Sep 3, 2009 @ 2:29pm

I am a creationist and I believe dinosaurs and man were created within the same week under 6000 years ago. After the flood, the outer atmosphere of water was dissipated over the earth through 40 days and 40 nights of rain over the entire earth killing all but a couple of each species by the grace of God. The water layer of protection prior to the flood provided increased atmospheric pressure and light filtration. combined, they increase size, strength and life span dramatically by providing structure and protection from the suns harmful rays. After the flood, all species were weaker, smaller and had shorter lives than before. People's lives shortened from an average of 600-900 years to around 120 years max. Many dinosaur species died out from a less regulated temperature in the atmosphere. Dragons are evidence that dinosaurs were a reality in pop culture. Sightings of pterydactyls and sea cratures are frequent throughout history. The bible mentions a couple descriptions of prehistoric creatures in the book of Job, which should be impossible according to evolutionists. I think this creature might be a Pleisiosaur? Who knows. Where are all the missing links? there aren't any. Just very specifically created species which are very adaptable and too complicated to have evolved from natural selection. We are God's most spectacular creation! Very unique. Email me your comments.

   comment# 324   - Kennedy · United States of America · Oct 21, 2009 @ 7:03pm

It appears to have a whale-like skull structure. What is left of the elongated body with the large "chunky" vertebrae and the huge ribs (indicating a large chest cavity) also indicates whale heritage, however the proportions are somewhat different - more reptilic, as is the appearance of what is left of the facial epidermis. The teeth appear to be flat and molder-like rather than canine could indicate that the creature was a herbivore.. but more likely an omnivore as herbivore teeth are flatter and more plate-like. The hair/fur indicates it was not a water-dweller. I conclude by the combination of appearance of in-tact remains of different features of the creature's body that it could possibly be from the Mammoth period where it has been quite successfully mummified in ice. However, the decomposition of the remains suggests that it is much younger than that. DNA analysis will easily determine its species.

a friend of a friend (if you know what i mean) has a story of an animal described as a water going emu with teeth that they saw and tracked when fishing in remote parts of south coast Australia. They tracked it and found it had eaten another in the dunes. maybe its something like that. recent scientific (CSIRO I think)deep sea netting between New Zealand and Australia found many new species. Not evrything is known on the planet. Scientist of the future will laugh at what we think we know.

And as for the creature thing thing, im pretty sure it was found to be a whale. And if you think the earth is 6,000 years old you are an less than intelligent person! No, just kiddin, everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but people have to stop kissing the sack of the government, or religion... research for yourself and make your own opinion, cuz the golden religious book isn't neccesarilly %100 factual, and neither are your history books.

It's definitely NOT an orca skeleton. Look at the blunt teeth. Orcas have sharper teeth, used for piercing. The...whatever-it-is up there has thick, short, blunt teeth. The spinal structure is very similar, but the or whatever isn't. I am reluctant to think it's a hoax, but who knows. The skull and jaw structure of the thing makes me think that "it" is NOT an orca skeleton though.

I Think it may have been a deep sea creature which lives too deep for us to find, despite our technology, we are not capable of reacing the bottom of the ocean. Another theory of mind insists that this creature has been preserved from the ages of the Dinosaurs, Properly an Omnivore, Blunt teeth for chewing Plant Life, And A Beak to capture small animals and swallowing them whole, its some sort of bird like creature, i can tell you that.

It is definitely not a shark.Sharks don't have a skull for a start,and the teeth are pointed,not serrated.This looks more like a Leopard Seal,which is large and predatory carnivore that hunts penguins and other seals.The postcranial vertebrae look more crocodilian than mammalian,however.Very odd.

if it,s real, its not from the croc or gator family (seen any front or back legs?)so that means it must have lived in the water. could have been some type of shark or whale except the placement and shape of the teeth are not quite right to be such. this just maybe some kind of illusive sea mammal that was undoccumented because of lack of proof of excistance... or the ill shot photos caused us to miss the flippers and its a really big walris. either way we may never know the truth, but i must say if it was a hoax it sure was a good one.

Based from the photo, It looks like prehistoric dinosaur who fought with giant mammoth and both died in the battle. Look at the bones, jaws & tails, the skin at the tail gives a hint that it resemble of dinosaur and the fur is actually resemble from mammoth furs. The decomposition looks like it was mummified and buried before any earthquake or some meltdown expose the corpse and wash to the shore.

   comment# 406   - Ben Jones · Bristol · Oct 11, 2011 @ 4:26pm

i am an expert on these types of things... judging by the fur or what ever you wanna call it, it seems to be somekind of a mammal of sorts. it may very well be a whale, but im hesitant to beleive that because whales don't have perms. no, i doubt that the fur is just sea plants, because the color, texture and abundance says otherwise... the teeth suggest that it is probably a fish eater OR a herbavore, and the tail vertebrae look like that of the variouse placadont species. if there is any other evidence to it's repto-mammal origins, it would indeed be it's bone shape\color or the fact that it has land fairing legs and not cetecaen flippers. i say its bigfoot =D just kidding it's probably another kind of large, terrestrial beast that science refuses to study because it's "nonsense...weve allready discovered every single last damn species on the damn, we did...end of story.....were right and your wrong...shut up..." bah! bahbah black sheep! i dislike science...
