It was in July of 2008, that the carcass of a bloated, chimera-like animal washed ashore in Long Island. The ‘Montauk Monster‘  zoologists concluded, was probably a water-damaged raccoon, rather than some sort of unknown species.

Now, in 2012, it appears another monster has landed on the beach.

These photos were recently snapped on the shore of Manhattan’s East River. Denise Ginley, who took the picture, is sharing hi-res closeups of the unfortunate creature on her Flickr account. (Warning, they are pretty gross.) You can see them below, if you dare.

 

 

Looking at the pictures gives you no idea what kind of animal this could possibly be. Makes you wonder what else is lurking in the deep, doesn't it?
