AQUATIC MEAT CHUNKS CONTINUED...
Questions about the existence of "sea monsters" raised by these discoveries aren't quelled by the subsequent finds of more recent years. While many have been dismissed as dead basking sharks or the like, a few escape easy explanation. Enter the "Globs and Blobs". The Tasmanian Globster and the Bermuda Blob are among the most well-known cases. These bizarre "corpses" have turned up on beaches all over the world, and have thwarted nearly every attempt to positively identify them.
Similar only to each other, these large masses range in size from 8 to 30 feet long X 3 to 18 feet wide X 1 to 8 feet high, and seem to be primarily composed of a gooey, flesh-like tissue. Many are reported to have no smell when first found, then to reek of battery acid as they decompose. This horrid smell is frequently the reason why the samples they are not studied more extensively. Such was the case of the MS Zuiyomaru, a Japanese fishing boat that snagged an enormous "carcass" in its nets. For fear of spoiling the day's catch with the stench of this bizarre find, the unidentified "glob" was thrown back (though, photographs were taken). Many think the pictures clearly show a decaying plesiosaur, an extinct dinosaur. I'm pretty sure I see a Class 9 Full-Scale Poltergeist. But who's to say for sure?
May aquatic ecto-materializations be the true source of other legends of the ocean's depths? The Loch Ness Monster? Champ? Ogopogo? It's hard to say. But when I see a "No Swimming" sign posted at my local beach, I pay heed. Until next time...
