This strange creature was found by the Iranian navy in the Persian Gulf in July this year. After the pictures were made public in several social networking sites, people have expressed opinion that this might be a new undiscovered species. However, it appears that it was not a living creature but just a corpse. After seeing the photos, a biology expert has stated that, taking into consideration the vertebrae and the skin colour of the creature, it could be a whale carcass. The supposition has been confirmed by Dr. Gary Griggs who is the director of the Institute of Marine Science at the University of California, Santa Cruz. According to Dr. Griggs’ vast knowledge and experience the find must be the remains of a whale although due to the condition of the corpse it is hard to determine the exact type.
