what is the 'hairy blob' or globster found on the philippines shore?


a six-metre-long "hairy" sea creature has washed up on the shore of dinagat island in the philippines and people have been questioning what it is. an unidentified creature like this is often known as a "globster" and they've been washing up for years.while some people think it might be new species, experts aren't convinced.lucy babey, head of science and conservation for the animal charity orca, says it's definitely the carcass of a dead animal - probably a whale."it's definitely a very decomposed sea creature in the later stages of decomposition," she tells newsbeat."the carcass is about six metres long, but that's obviously not the whole carcass - there's no tail so it would have been bigger than that."that would suggest that it was probably a whale."image caption blue whales are the lar
