The tattered, stinky remains of a 15ft mystery creature has washed up on a British beach.
The smelly carcass has astounded locals in Liverpool after it washed ashore on Ainsdale beach.
Clearly having legs, potentially hooves, and almost certainly fur - the creature has confused beachgoers.
But it has been accepted that it has a rancid smell, the Liverpool Echo reports.
Photos snapped and shared on Facebook show a large muscular creature laying on the sand.
Fur has worn away on some parts of the creature revealing huge bones.
The 15ft body first shocked a beachgoer on Wednesday, July 29.
The unnamed man told the Liverpool Echo: “It was approximately 15ft long and had bones sticking out everywhere, approximately four feet long some of them. Stunk too.
"It looked like it had an extra thing attached to it, maybe it was giving birth and died?"
The smelly body has dumbfounded Liverpudlians on Facebook who are convinced it is the remains of an alien.
One user said: “A woolly mammoth? *yes I’m aware they’re extinct but honestly what it looks like to me*.
And another said: “2020 what a year, the aliens have arrived."
A third said: “I’m still voting wooly mammoth or a Frankenstein monster gone awry."
The general consensus appears to be that the carcass belongs to a cow or a horse, not an alien.
One said: "Awh..... it looks like a cow, could it be one that has wondered off from the grazing grounds?"
Another said: “I think it might be a horse”.
And a third zeroed in on a tell tale giveaway, writing: “Looks like a horse. Don't cow's have cloven hooves?"
The creature is not the first unusual body to stun beachgoers this week.
The remains of a huge “alien like” being were stumbled upon by a pair of vets in Victoria, Australia.
Coming in at nearly 6ft, the couple were perplexed by what they had discovered.
It turns out it was a - relatively small - Sunfish.
