Globsters (I prefer to call them blobsters [blob+monster]) are large masses of organic remains. “Globster” was coined by cryptozoologist Ivan Sanderson to give a name to these unindentifiable blobs of tissue that wash up on shores around the world. One has appeared recently.
Like the unholy offspring of a giant squid and a mollusk without its shell, a mysterious creature washed up the shore of a village in Aparri, Cagayan Thursday, prompting residents to seek help—and take pictures.
24 Oras showed pictures of the silver creature on the beach decomposing, fraying at the ends, and absolutely headless.
At five to six meters long, the creature was never weighed; it is now buried under the sand it was found in, after two days of residents enduring its rotten stench.
As this one was, they stink, being seriously decomposed. They are typically buried on the beach if they don’t wash back out. It can be difficult to carve a chunk out of the rubbery mass. No samples was taken of the creature either but a technical report is supposedly coming next week. In all cases, globsters have been associated with remains of whales or sharks. They are so decomposed that they are unidentifiable and were previously speculated to be giant octopus or unknown species. Tissue tests these days can identify the protein as fish or mammal even after all the diagnostic parts are long gone. The glob is typically made of collagen, common in whales and slow to decompose. It is usually all that remains of the floating blob that washes onshore to the disgust and amazement of observers who think it’s something new and mysterious.
