There is no question that there are even some fake pictures out there... But that doesn't mean they all are.

There are some fake 20 dollar bills out there too, that doesn't mean they're all fake.

This is why it is always important to research these things yourself.

The first is the Zuiyo-maru carcass.

In 1977 a Japanese fishing boat was the center of an astonishing find. While its nets were dropped to a depth of 1000 feet, a large animal carcass became entangled in its net. The massive creature was 33 feet long and weighed about 4,000 pounds.

Upon examination, none of the men onboard were able to identify it.

Tissue samples were taken along with several pictures.

To avoid contaminating millions of dollars worth of fish onboard,(and because of the horrible stench) the decaying carcass was dropped overboard.

Scientists were asked to view the pictures, and were also unable to identify it.
Many viewed it as being the carcass of a plesiosaur, which had previously been thought extinct for millions of years. Others feel that it is the rotted carcass of a basking shark.

Many people have claimed (and still claim) that this was a plesiosaur. This thrilled many in the scientific community.

As much as I would like this to be true, there is a great deal of evidence that it is NOT a plesiosaur.

I have posted the evidence that the Zuiyo-maru carcass is a Basking shark HERE
