The Four Mile Globster

The Four Mile Globster was an unidentified mass that washed ashore in Four Mile Beach, Tasmania, in 1997. The carcass was 15 ft (4.6 m) long, 6 ft (1.8 m) wide, and was estimated to weigh 4 tons. It was described as having paddle-shaped flippers, strands of white hair, and six fleshy lobes along its sides.[1][2]

The Globster was described by eyewitnesses to resemble a cross between a walrus and a giant squid. [3]
