The Dunk Island carcass was a globster that washed up upon the shore of Dunk Island, near the Great Barrier Reef, in 1948.


Australian boatmen discovered the creature washed ashore, which they described as appearing to be a large jellyfish but with a tough, hairy side. The side also boasted slits, apparently.


After experts attempted to identify the creature, they claimed it to be a deformed whale embryo. Attempts were made to burn the embryo but with no avail. Eventually, it was left for the tides to take it away.
