Strange Skull: It’s A Tuna!

Posted by: Loren Coleman on April 20th, 2010

Two weeks ago, WCSH-6 reporter Bill Green created a buzz by doing a story on a “strange skull” that a man had kept in his garage for 15 years. We wondered if it might just be a common big fish, maybe a sturgeon. The answer, we assumed, could be discovered, quite easily, if the owner or Green took it to an expert.

Green decided to do the common sense thing, and take it to a museum. He consulted with Dr. Paula Work at the Maine State Museum & Archives, who, along with Bob Lewis there, quickly came up with an answer.

Green fancily talked about it maybe being an alien, dragon, or a dinosaur.

Work said it is an old tuna skull.

End of that non-story.

Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T.

    Really and believe me wandering around to the other like-minded, (but not even close to this site), sites it seems the skull is everywhere and….people were falling for it. One site even suggested it was from the alien lizard people who apparently live on as the Queen of England or ‘pick a president’ and yes it’s my own fault for going to these places in the first place hahaha.
    In my own defence mind you I’m not dumb, when I need the crypto-truth there’s only one place I goto that I trust and respect…thanks for the post….Tuna skull, the Queen is a reptile hahaha what a planet!!!

    Sorry Charlie, only the best tuna are Chicken of the Sea!

    …and only a real researcher would have taken this thing to an expert…say…15 YEARS ago…

  3. Cryptoraptor responds:

    So it’s a tuna, but aren’t tuna considered ‘Bigfoot of the Sea’?

    Yes, yes they are and they taste like chicken.
