A huge, dead creature has washed up on a beach in Indonesia – and so far, no one knows what it is.
The body was found on Hulung Beach on Serum Island on Tuesday night by local people – who initially thought it was a stranded boat.
The bloated 45-foot corpse is believed to have been dead for several days before washing up on the beach.

Locals shared images of themselves with the creature in Indonesia’s central Maluku province – with many convinced it is a giant squid.
But experts from Indonesia’s Marine and Coastal Resources Management said that the animal was more likely to be a whale – due to four-metre protrusions at the front.
The laboratory has now removed samples of the meat for testing.
