St augustine carcass lusca.jpg

The St. Augustine Monster was a cryptid carcass discovered in 1896 on Anastasia Island in Florida, though it was later washed ashore on Crescent Beach,in St.Agustine Florida. The carcass was initially believed by scientist A. E. Verrill to have been part of a giant octopus, which the scientist in question gave the scientific name Octopus giganteus. However, samples taken from the creature were later revealed that the "octopus" was actually a mass of whale blubber, likely from a sperm whale.
