The Tasmanian Globster was a large unidentified carcass that washed ashore in western Tasmania, in August 1960. It measured 20 ft (6.1 m) by 18 ft (5.5 m) and was estimated to weigh between 5 and 10 tons. The mass lacked eyes and in place of a mouth, had "soft, tusk-like protuberances". It had a spine, six soft, fleshy 'arms' and stiff, white bristles covering its body.
A similar find was reported by Ben Fenton, one of those involved in the earlier find, in 1970. It was buried in the sand, but the visible part was 8 ft (2.4 m) long. Pictures taken of this carcass have since gone missing.
