    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.

            It might be a shark with a characteristic that is unusual for sharks. As we know, some members of groups deviate from the norm.       Neal

          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.
