“Carolyn Hoffman was walking along the beach in Delray Beach on Jan. 5 with her husband when something odd caught her eye.
A long, ribbon-shaped fish with a large, bulging eye had washed up in the surf.”
It`s usually summer when horrendous creatures, like the Mantauk Monster, wash up on the shore, but it`s always summer in Florida.
Carolyn`s husband is a fisherman, and he didn`t recognize the strange creature. I don`t want to cause a panic in Delray Beach, but commonsense tells me that there`s more than one of those creatures lurking in the water.
Palm Beach Atlantic University Biology Professor Ray Waldner, an ichthyologist (somebody who knows a hell about fish) said the creature is probably an oarfish, or maybe a dealfish. In other words the fish expert is clueless, it could also be a monster from the deep.
The residents of Delray Beach will need suntan lotion and a lot of courage when they sunbathe on the beach.
