The Strange Mutant Sea “Monster” Washed Ashore In The Russian Far East: Like A Dolphin But With Thick Hair

Currently, scientists have not been able to determine the origin of this strange mutant. It has similar characteristics to a dolphin but is twice the size of a normal one.

Recently, the carcass of a giant sea creature with a strange shape with a bird’s beak and a few feathers on the tail has washed up on the shores of the Russian Far East. When scientists first saw this strange mutant, scientists were unable to determine its origin. It has similar characteristics to a dolphin but is twice the size of a normal one.

It was found on the coast near Shakhtersk airport on Sakhalin Island, closer to the US side than Moscow, with rotting flesh and exposed bones.

This ancient animal has surprised scientists with its shape like a dolphin but with an extra coat of hair covering the outside.

According to the captured images, it is clear that the carcass of this animal is covered with a thick layer of hair, a feature that has greatly puzzled marine biologists.

Nikolay Kim, vice president of the Forecasting Department of the Sakhalin Institute of Oceanography, shared that he believes this is a species of giant dolphin. “Based on the characteristics of the skin, this is a rare species. I’m not sure it lives in this area, maybe it was carried by a hot ocean current. We usually find tropical creatures and subtropical around this area, when the water cools down, they die off.I can say with confidence that this is a member of the dolphin family.However, it has feathers, which is quite special. “


This mysterious creature has a coat of hair and even a fish tail.

This creature drifted from the east coast of Russia but its origin is unknown.

Photographs of the creature’s carcass caused a stir in Russian media, with many locals trying to figure out what exactly the animal was. Some say: “It looks like a mutated sea monster with an extra beak.”.

It is further suggested that it resembles the Ganges River dolphin, which is commonly found in freshwater areas in India, Pakistan, Nepal and Bangladesh.

“Perhaps our summer is so cold that the Indian dolphins migrate to this area and have to ‘wear’ more fur coats,” a funny resident said.

It has no dorsal fin, the creature can only swim thanks to a small triangular hump.

With a small triangular brown hump in place of the dorsal fin, the Ganges dolphin is different from other dolphins. However, they are also completely hairless and only about 2.4m long, still much smaller than this strange creature that has just appeared. Nikolay Kim, vice-president of the Forecasting Department of the Sakhalin Institute of Oceanography, believes the creature has drifted inland due to rising water temperatures.


There are about 40 different species of dolphins in the world, of which the Orca is the largest, reaching 10 meters in length and commonly known as the Killer Whale. According to the famous marine park Sea World, at birth, dolphins have a short coat but are shaved soon after.
