THE REMAINS of a bizarre alien-like creature has washed up on a beach in North Devon.
Richard Walden shared a photo online of the huge carcass from Woolacombe beach on Saturday and some suggested it could be an eel, part of a whale or even an alien.
Richard wrote on Facebook: “Anyone have any idea what type of animal this might be?
“If it was stretched out I’d guess up to 3 metres long.
Allen Groves said: “It looks like a part of a whale but it could be anything we could be here all day trying to guess.”
Richard Olde joked: “That might be worth reporting to The X-Files!”
Bianca Robinson agreed: “Definitely alien”
Stuart Poffley said: Pelican eel maybe?”
While Julie Elliot said: “Looks like a sloth gone wrong.”
Even a spokesperson from the Devon Wildlife Trust was stumped.
He said: “It is hard to tell because it is so decomposed.
“We do get a lot of strange things washed up on our coast.
“It could be quite an exotic animal that died in the middle of the sea, hundreds of miles away and was blown up on the coast due to the strong winds we have been having.”

The lamprey are typically found in Spain and Portugal, making it a rare find on British shores.
