    It's a capybara with mange and a severe overbite. In fact, it looks like something that fell out of a really bad date I had ass when he coughed.

    Actually it looks like the corpse of a small mammal.

    A dog, a pig, a peccary, a raccoon or something. Most likely a dog.

    Nothing weird about it, except that's it's decaying, bloated, and probably eaten.

    The only weird feature they claim it has is the 'beak' and in the second picture it's not really a beak but the nasal bone showing because the skin covering it has been eaten away or something.

    Small animal, stripped of skin and partially chewed on. On the roadsides you see all kinds of bizarre corpses that don't resemble their living, hairy, unchewed-on bodies.

    The truly bizarre thing about a picture of a corpse is that this actually hit the news cycles (CNN, etc.). What, no news from Afghanistan? The news media disgusts me.

    The Montauk Monster is a rodent-like creature "with a dinosaur beak" which washed ashore dead in Montauk, New York in late July of 2008.

    It has been speculated that Montauk Monster may be a turtle without its shell, a dog, a raccoon, or perhaps a science experiment from the nearby Government animal testing facility in Long Island.

    Since the body is not available for study, and is only shown in photos taken by the locals who discovered it, some think that this may be a photoshopped image or some viral marketing campaign by an upcoming Cartoon Network show called Cryptids Are Real. A new picture of the creature has also been shown on the news and Internet. Animal Expert Jeff Corwin has appeared on Fox news and claimed that upon close inspection of the photograph, he feels sure the "monster" is merely a raccoon or dog that has decomposed slightly. The creature also had sighns of light burns.

    its a deformed baby bird that the mom kicked out of the nest for whatever reason. It looks fairly small actually.

    it's probably something very explainable
    but that it's been physically changed through decomposition

    But it's kool to look at icon_eek.gif

    The shell of a turtle is also part of it's spine, since the skin is intact, the thing also has some fur, it can't be that. It appears to have a beak but also has teeth, to me that suggests that the nose was eaten by carrion. I think the paws offer the best clue and I suggest a drowned racoon. Racoons have long manipulative digits. The body is bloated from the gas of decomposition and the hair has fallen out. We can't really tell the size that well because there's nothing but sand to give it scale, not even a footprint. Or it could be El Chupacabra.
    If "El Chupacabra" means Goat Sucker in spanish, what what is the word for Man Sucker?
