Marine Monster Mystery on S.C. Beach
A bizarre creature that washed ashore last week in Folly Beach, S.C., sparked speculation in the area and on the Internet that a dead sea monster might have been discovered.
The tan-brown animal with greenish patches was strange enough, but what really baffled beachgoers was its massive size and the dinosaur-like bony plates on its sides. It’s not clear just how long it was, but photos suggest it exceeded 10 feet.
