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, which they described as appearing to be a large jellyfish (see Giant Jellyfish) but with a tough, hairy side. The side also boasted slits, apparently. After experts attempted to identify the creature and claimed it to be a deformed whale embryo. The embryo was burned but with no avail, so it was left for the tides to take it away.
