Hello, all mystery analyzing experts! The ocean always brings about surprises, especially that are from the deep and mysterious sea.
Have you ever thought of picking up a big displacement motorbike that drifted ashore? When it comes to the sea, people often imagine a romantic scene.
In fact, people stumble across bizarre things from time to time, ranging from mysterious creatures to the items that never can we imagine.
Some of these things even puzzle scientists because they cannot find their origins. Apart from that, those things may cost more than a fortune. So now, join us to learn more about: 10 objects washed ashore that make people extremely curious.
Number 11. A sea monster’s skeleton
Nature conservationists recently found a headless skeleton of the Steller’s sea cow on the remote Commander Islands in the Bering Sea, Russia.
Giant bones protruded from the sand like a barrier. After 8 hours of digging, they discovered this was the Steller’s sea cow that once roamed the waters between Russia and Alaska.
The team found 45 vertebrae, 27 ribs, left shoulder-blade and other bone fragments of the headless creature.
Arctic explorers once saw these “sea monsters” swimming before they were extinct. The sea cows belong to the group of mammals called Sirenia – named after mermaids in Greek mythology.
Number 10 Plastic eggs
Thousands of Kinder eggs drifted towards a German island’s beach, possibly due to a shipment overturned on a ship from China.
DW this week reported the eggs were discovered on Langeoog Island, off Germany’s northeastern coast.
Dozens of islanders, including adults and children, flocked to the coast in order to collect plastic eggs. Kinder eggs contained candies and a toy.
A package was assumed to be from a cargo ship attached Danish flag, travelling from China to Germany. The plastic eggs contained a piece of paper in Rusian.
Langeoog is a small island with over 1,700 people. It is located near one of the bustling shipping routes in the world, where cargo ships reach northern Europe.
Number 9 A container
With the exception of a few people walking their dogs, the Branscombe beach in Devon, USA, is often pretty deserted.
Nevertheless, in 2007, the coast suddenly became crowded after news of 62,000 tons of goods drifted ashore.
The beach was full of miscellaneous items such as motorbikes, beauty creams, oil paints, electronics.
One person there described the scene as “something like a bomb explosion or a car selling spot”. Afterward, many items were sold on eBay.
Number 8 Legs
It is legs that is one of the most mysterious things washed ashore. Since 2007, about 16 humans’ feet still being in shoes have been found on the British Columbia coast, from Jedediah Island towards Canada’s Botanical Beach.
According to local authorities, they’ve identified eight legs. 2 pairs of legs among them belong to 2 people, the rest belong to different victims.
Since the first leg was discovered in 2007, theories about them, including different views have been suggested.
In 2008, an article in the Toronto Star revealed: “They are probably the remains of natural disasters, such as the 2004 tsunami or victims of human trafficking and mass murder”.
Number 7 A lego statue
A giant Lego model up to 2.43m high washed up on the Zandvoort coast (Netherlands), which rendered people present on the coast extremely surprised.
Since they didn’t know where the Lego came from, they put it upright and took a photo with it in order to record the amazing phenomenon.
It has seemed to be impossible to identify the Lego model’s origin, even the Dutch LEGOLAND also affirmed that they’ve had nothing to do with the giant toy.
Number 6 A real eye
In 2012, when a person was walking on the coast of Florida, USA, he saw a giant eye right there. The eye looked completely intact and “fresh” so Gino Covacci was amazed at his discovery.
He reported to the local authorities so that they could identify what the blue-eyed animal was. Only after less than a week, experts from the Florida Wildlife Conservation Center detected the eye belonged to a huge swordfish, not any monster.
Number 5. Flow recorder
Another surprising thing that I want to mention is the flow recorder, maybe not many of us know about it except the experts
This item was found on the beach causes many arguments around people Based on its appearance, it looks like a flying saucer that people always assume that it comes from aliens.
However, this is just an equipment that is used to measure the flowing rate under the ocean.
Nunmber 4: A prehistoric shark tooth
A man named Philip Mullaly found a “giant” shark’s tooth in the well-known Great Ocean Road beach, about 100km away from Melbourne.
” When I was walking on the beach, searching for fossils, I noticed a part of the tooth protruding, next to a rock,” Mullaly said.
I was astonished, supposing this was an important finding that people would be particularly interested in.”
Mullaly contacted the Victoria Museum to learn about the shark possessing this tooth. Paleontologist Erich Fitzgerald confirmed that the 7cm-long tooth belonged to an ancient giant shark whose scientific name was Carcharocles angustidens.
The shark species used to live in the Australia ocean 25 million years ago.
Number 3: “Banana wave” hit Dutch beaches
“I think every person on the island can now own a bunch of bananas,” said Gossen Buren, an employee at the local Lighthouse.
Throughout half a mile on the Terschelling coast, 70 miles away from Amsterdam, was flooded with Cuban bananas.
The banana also drifted towards the nearby Ameland island. Inhabitants on Terschelling island are not unfamiliar with “bizarre things” at sea.
One year ago, they witnessed thousands of tennis shoes, bags, toys … drifting, and then they dragged the crowd to hunt for objects.
On top of that, about 20 years ago, the “flood of long-sleeved sweaters” also appeared at Terschelling.
And now the most exciting part of the, decoding the most controversial photo In the photo, there’s a rocket that was found on the beach by Vietnamese fishermen.
Question: what is that? All will be included in the following section Now, let’s coming back with
Number 1: Torpedo
Vietnamese fisherman Tran Minh Thanh landed an unusual catch the other day, finding what appears to be a Chinese torpedo off the country’s coast.
Under the watchful eye of local border guards, Tran dragged it ashore where onlookers got a chance to see it before government officials took it away for further inspection.
Tran reportedly found the torpedo more than four miles out to sea from his village in Vietnam’s central Phu Yen province, which would be within the country’s national waters, on Dec. 18, 2018.
The weapon is slightly over 22 feet long and has a diameter of just over 21 inches. It’s size and shape, coupled with Chinese markings, strongly suggest that it is Yu-6 from the People’s Liberation
Number 1: A plastic straw
The thing that makes people most curious and surprised is the plastic pipe drifted ashore strangely A 2m-diameter pipe was dropped into the sea during transportation.
Residents in Norfolk (USA) were immensely amazed to see it on the beach in August 2017. The huge tube is nearly 500m long.
