Russian Fishermen Find Remains of Large Unknown Marine Creature

(EFE) - Fishermen from the island of Sakhalin in the Russian far east found the remains of an enormous unknown marine creature, according to Vladimir Bedzhisov, director of the Sakhalin region's department of culture.

"One of the fishermen managed to identify the find with the aid of an encyclopedia and, much to his surprise, learned that the animal resembles a a plesiosaur (prehistoric marine reptile)," said Bedzhisov in a statement to the Interfax news agency.

The animal, according to the fishermens' account, has a length of nearly 7 meters, has dark grey skin and is covered by fine hairs measuring nearly 5 centimeters long.

The tail of the "sea monster", found on one of the shores of the Tatarski Straits, measures 1 m long by 40 cm wide.

Bedzhisov announced that a specialist from the Yuzhno-Sajalinsk Museum in Sakhalin would visit the place where the discovery took place.
