Numerous photographs are selfies, which locals took of themselves with the pale-colored, hairy-looking large mass, that appeared to be bleeding.
The carcass, believed to be that of a sea cow, according to the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) Manila, washed up on a beach in Barangay Poblacion, Cagadianao.
Globster is the name given to an unidentified organic mass that washes up on the shoreline of an ocean or other body of water. The creepy beast measured 20 feet long and, as it sat on the shoreline, became the subject of many selfies, photographs and videos. This time it was a enormous serpent-like oarfish, which was discovered on the northern coast of Mindanao in the Philippines.
This, however, hasn't stopped people from clicking pictures with it or speculating about it.
Without sufficient evidence, we'll have to leave this one as a mystery for now, but hopefully as more research is done using roving deep-sea vehicles, we'll get a better idea of what's bringing these creatures to the surface.
Some netizens said it was a carcass of a sea cow (dugong), while others see it as a bad omen.

The Oarfish is a remarkably long, seldom seen deep-sea fish that has found itself at the center of a conspiracy theory suggesting they are natural quake predictors.
In addition to its natural disaster predicting abilities, the oarfish sightings are significant due to several unexplained incidents of animals beaching themselves recently, including hundreds of whales in New Zealand.
