The strange “dragon” carcass that washed ashore in Spain

Fox News |

Dragons may not be the stuff of legends anymore. A dragon-like corpse washed ashore in Spain and it’s got everyone wondering just what kind of animal is it.

From Fox News:

“We have no idea what it could be,” Civil Protection coordinator Maria Sanchez told Spanish newspaper Levante. “A woman found a piece [of the animal] and we helped her get the rest.”

The rotting corpse runs a little over 13 feet and is in an advanced stage of decomposition, according to the Spanish news outlet.

“It’s hard to tell [what the animal is],” University of Miami shark researcher David Shiffman told NBC on Twitter. “But the official guess that it could be a thresher shark seems plausible.”

Oh come on, a shark would be boring. Let’s hope it’s really a dragon.
