Massive 'sea monster' discovered on Hulung Brach in Indonesia

A giant "squid-like" creature has washed up on the coast of an Indonesia island leaving locals baffled.

The massive carcass was found on Hulung Beach on Serum Island on Tuesday night by a local man, the Jakarta Globe reported.

In the darkness, Asrul Tuanakota, 37, initially mistook the huge fleshy blob for a stranded boat.

Since its discovery, locals have been at odds as to whether it's a giant squid of the remains of a whale.

It is thought to be almost 50 feet (15 meters) long and 6-7 meters wide.

Disturbingly, this isn't the only time a weird creature has rocked up on heavenly beaches, as earlier this year a "hairy" creature washed up in the Philippines baffling locals. Further investigation, however, has revealed it to be some kind of dead creature large like a whale but of an unknown species.

A group of marine scientists have reportedly taken samples of the creature in a bid to identify it. However, others have suggested that it's not a squid at all, but a dead whale which has grown unidentifiable due to decay.
