        Not a vertebrate specialist, but it looks like a axial skeleton from some kind of big shark - not of a too unusual size though. Only skull and rostrum remain,

          Not a vertebrate specialist, but it looks like a axial skeleton from some kind of big shark - not of a too unusual size though. Only skull and rostrum remain, the jaw that is suspended to skull with ligaments and fins are missing, perhaps they fell of the decomposing corps.

          The tail shape is typical, and the vertebra and skull seems poorly ossified.

                It might be authentic. The majority of shark fossil specimens consist only of teeth, though some have other components. Most well preserved shark

            I agree. If it s not a hoax, the skeletal frame is probably that of a shark. The skull is a bit confusing, though. But I m certainly no authority on sharks.

                  I wasn't thinking of a fossil, I think it is a decomposed specimen washed ashore.

                  On the video, it is more evident than on the pictures, because there are close-ups.

                  I think it always interesting to try to identify weird remains like this one, especially when they are reported as 'monsters' :-)

                        It may be decomposed; that alters the specimen to a considerable extent. I agree; it is interesting to try to identify remains like that.
