Sea Beast Washes Up on Indonesian Beach

In 2017, a mysterious sea beast the size of a large bus washed up on a remote beach in Indonesia, completely baffling locals and triggering an army response.

Government troops were called in to help clear the gigantic remains after a local, Asrul Tuanakota, 37, found it at Hulung Beach on Seram Island, Indonesia.

It was later reported to be the remains of a giant squid that had died at least three days earlier. However, no one knows the cause of death for the animal – or if it was even killed naturally.

The maximum size of a giant squid is thought to be only 43-feet for females and 33-feet for males as they are among the largest living organisms in the world.

This is not the first giant creature that shocked the region.
