Creepiest things that have washed up on shore – “The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents.” – H.P. Lovecraft Did you know that we, as human beings, understand more about space and how our universe works than we understand about the oceans on our very own planet? In fact, we understand so little about the Earth’s oceans and what lies beneath the depths that scientists are constantly discovering new and wondrous things that we hadn’t previously known about.

Our oceans provide food, air and a healthy fear of the unknown. We call the fear of deep waters thalassophobia, and we have acquired this fear for a reason. The things that lie within the waters can be very strange and alien indeed, and more often than not, we discover things much larger and much more strange than we would have ever thought could have existed.
It seems that the more pollution we put into our water, the more of its denizens we force out of it and onto beaches where people find them. Mysteries abound as we continue to find more and more objects and creatures that we have no way of understanding. The more we change the world around us, the more it reveals its mysteries to us. Unfortunately, we, as humans, must come to grips with the fact that we may never truly understand out own world, and the things that occur within it.
15. The Montauk Monster
In the heat of summer in New York, 2008, a creature that has still yet to be identified washed ashore on a beach near the business district. It quickly attracted a small crowd and rumors quickly began to circulate as a picture of the creature went viral.
Since its appearance, there have been many theories ranging from raccoon to dog or large rodent in an attempt to identify the creature, but all attempts to identify the animal come to obstacles regarding body and skeleton structure. To make matters worse, the carcass disappeared shortly after its appearance, making identification all but impossible.
Because of this, rumors have spread that the creature had come from an experiment performed at the nearby Plum Island facility. Is this a creature changed by decomposition, or something much more strange?
