A grisly carcass has washed up on the south Wales beach and we’ve yet to get to the bottom of what the creature once was.

The 11ft remains were discovered by a couple walking their dog at Morfa Beach in Port Talbot.

Melanie Rees, 41, said she and husband Mike, 47, were used to seeing jellyfish and other small creatures washed up on the sands - but never anything this big.

Mrs Rees told Wales News: "I couldn't believe how big it was.

"At first I thought it was a piece of driftwood or a big log as it was so far off the beach.

"But when we got closer, I could see thousands of flies and I knew it had been an animal.

The remains are 11ft long in length 

"I couldn't believe how big it was. I think it could be a whale, but I'm not sure. I don't think a whale would wash up that far."

The mother-of-two, from Port Talbot, South Wales, said despite uploading photos of the beast onto social media no one has been able to help identify her find.

She added: "People on Facebook have been hilarious. One has even said it could be a dinosaur, but I'm not so sure."

Over to you, internet.
