Strange Carcass on Georgia Beach

I was asked by First Coast News to comment on a photo of a strange “carcass” allegedly found on a beach in Georgia which has been circulating on the internet this week. I was interviewed for their news segment based on my research into the legendary creature known as the “Altamaha-ha” (aka “Altie”) which has been sighted in Georgia’s Altamaha River over the years. The location where this carcass was allegedly found is not far from the mouth of the Altamaha on the Atlantic coast.

As usual, I said much more in the interview than was presented in the final news report.  But essentially, it’s hard to tell what this truly is without examining the actual specimen (if there is one). There’s nothing in the photo to provide scale, so that makes it harder to speculate.

Here’s the news report:

Here’s the initial story that was circulating:
