A 20-foot long unidentified sea creature found on a beach in Philippines has left locals terrified that a bad omen is upon them. Experts are baffled by the appearance and are attempting to figure out the unidentified mass.

The hairy sea creature, being termed as a ‘globster’, surfaced on a beach in San Antonia province on May 11. While some speculated that it might be remains of a decomposed whale, the locals have theorized that the appearance portends a natural disaster. Regardless, the creature has aroused interest in many circles and has attracted worldwide attention.
In the video, the grayish white creature can be seen floating near shore while two men with ropes try to pull the it out of the water. Some local residents also gathered around at the beach to take a quick look at the sea creature.
According to the villagers, anytime an unknown creature washes ashore, it is an indication of a disaster. This foreboding has disturbed the local residents who are praying against the impending doom.
Marine workers even took samples of the creature while some governmental officers stated that it may only be a dead whale.
Vox Krusada, Fishery Law Enforcement Officer, said, “For now we can say it is a whale, but the exact species is still unknown. The tissue samples are now sent to our lab for DNA analysis.”
Krusada also claimed that as he was present at the time when the tissue samples were being taken, he ‘experienced the full power of its smell’. He also stated that the smell was ‘awful’ and may have been ‘something from another planet.’
He added, “I felt better after taking a bath but the stench still lingers in my nose.”
According to Krusada, the foul-smelling carcass has now been buried by the local government of Gloria.
The ‘globster’ has made headlines across the world; the pungent smell has spread to the whole beach and on Twitter.

One user even believed it to be a creature from another planet.
Let’s wait for the DNA tests… without those, how would we distinguish Earth-based vs. alien life forms?
