With fur on its tail and twice the size of a human being, no one yet knows what the animal is.

The remains of an unidentified sea animal with fur on its tail have been washed ashore in the Far East. Found near the airport at Shakhtersk, on Sakhalin Island, its appearance is unlike anything ever found in Russia.

Judging from the remains the creature was giant and about twice the length of a human, and it had a huge nose like a bird’s beak.

Pictures of the carcass have created a stir on social media after being taken by local people and posted online.

    This is the remains of a large beaked whale, perhaps Bairds Beaked Whale or some other similar species. The “hair” of course is the fibrous structure when the skin and blubber break down and decompose. This would be a small specimen since the largest beaked whales can reach over 40 feet in length and weigh over 12 tons.
    No mystery here.
