The mystery of the creepy looking creature that was found on the beach in South Africa may have been solved. John Rudley from the National Oceanic Institute says he thinks it might be… but wait, I haven’t told you the whole story yet.
A woman in South Africa posted this picture on her social media page. She found it on the beach near Cape Town, South Africa…
Along with the picture, she asked “Can Somebody tell me what the hell this is? We picked it up on the beach. It’s the real thing.
The weird looking creature is fish like but with huge teeth and it’s head appears far too big for it’s small body.
So far, people have speculated that the creature is some kind of mutated species – specifically a cross between a puffer fish and a mussel. But that is just wild speculation.
So now back to Rudley. He thinks the creature might be a Rocksucker. This is a species of clingfish found along the Atlantic coast of Africa from Namibia to northern Natal, South Africa. This species grows to a length of 30 centimetres (12 in) TL.
Rocksuckers are a type of clingfish that had dried out in the sand and became disfigured.
This is a picture of a Rocksucker, and it does look similar, but so far nobody has been able to prove it one way or another.
