A strange sea monster has washed up dead on the shores of Pukehina Beach in New Zealand after violent sea storms last month. The dead body of the sea monster measured about 30 feet and became a major attraction for beachgoers who were dumb-founded when they saw the dead carcass and thought it was a prehistoric creature.
A YouTube video posted by beachgoer Elizabeth Ann shows the rare creature very closely and clearly and has gone viral over the internet by getting more than 1 million views till now.
However, when marine expert Anton van Helden saw the footage, Helden was able to identify the carcass belonging to an Orca, a killer whale.
Orca's are not on the list of endangered species, but are threatened in some locations due to pollution and other related factors.
