Large mysterious sea creature washes up on Mexico beach
A large unidentified creature has washed ashore on Bonfil Beach, in the city of Acapulco, south-west Mexican state of Guerrero on March 10, 2016.
The animal is 4 meters (13 feet) long and was brought to the shore by strong currents that have been affecting this region.
Rosa Ramacho, the coordinator of the Civil Guard and Fire Brigade, said that she does not think the animal had been dead for a long time, but it did start rapidly decaying. "We have no idea what type of animal this is, but I do know that it does not smell bad or have a fetid aroma."

Or, it could be the climate change has warmed the waters so much it died.
Is there going to be another photo, where I can tell a little better where the head and tail might be? I am saddened, that it most likely will still have something to do with Fukushima, I am afraid. Somehow I am hoping that we some day will see one of these water dinosaurs that has the huge long neck sticking out of the water.
