Mysterious Loch Ness-Like Creature Washes up on South Georgia Beach 1

A mysterious sea creature washed ashore in St. Simons Island and it has beachgoers scratching their heads.

Jeff Warren and his son were at Wolf Island National Wildlife Refuge just north of St. Simons Island in Georgia Friday when they came upon the creature on a barrier island.

Warren thought it was a dead seal, but said when he got a closer look it resembled more of the Loch Ness monster.

Warren sent the photo to News4Jax and said the creature was about 4 to 5 feet long with two fins.

A local writer and novelist contacted News4Jax saying he believes the mysterious sea creature looks exactly like the legendary Altamaha-ha, a river monster of the Altamaha River located just west of Wolf Island and could be a survivor of the Mesozoic Era.

UPDATE from News4Jax.com: Mysterious Georgia sea creature a hoax?

Jacksonville University marine biology experts say, “Not so fast.”

They’re calling the creature a hoax.

Dr. Quinton White of the Marine Biology Institute at JU said he’s seen the photo and video of the creature and the consensus at JU is that it’s a fake.

The Georgia Department of National Resources is trying to determine if anyone has the creature’s carcass, so state experts can examine it.

Officials said they got no calls about the sea creature, but would like to hear from anyone who has information. The ranger hotline is 800-241-4113.
