On July 27 2010, Gill Pearce spotted a mysterious creature about 30 yards off the Devon coast at Saltern Cove, Paignton. First thought to be a turtle, photographs reveal something that is too long to be anything normally found in those waters.
The creature appears to be a greenish-brown beast with the reptile-like head is far too long for it to be a turtle.
Fish in the area were said to have beached themselves to escape the mysterious creature, very strange behavior for sure.
Saltern Cove, Paignton is about 200 miles south west of London on the southern coast of England on Tor Bay.
Something mysterious has washed up on the Newfoundland beach in Lower Cove at McIvers on the Bay of Islands lower north shore.
It is reported to be approximately 15-foot length including a pointed, 10-foot tail and has a single two foot long flipper-like appendage on its right side. The creature has no head and cannot be easily identified, even by locals who are familiar with the native marine life. It has a Loch Ness Monster/plesiosaur type look to it.
Its reported that there are patches of hair on the body, ruling out the possibility of it being a part of giant squid.
