A mystery animal corpse that washed up on a beach has perplexed people im Devon. The strange-looking dead animal is barely recognisable, but for what appears to be the remnants of some tufts of reddish-brown and white fur. The pictures of the splayed remains of the badly-decomposed animal strewn amid the stones were sent in to Devon Live. Connor Willers, who found the unidentified animal at Teignmouth, was intrigued by his curious find and unsure what the creature could be. “I found this really weird and mysterious creature on the beach in Teignmouth,” wrote Connor. The mystery animal isn’t the only creature to have been seen near Devon beaches recently. Monster jellyfish that can grow to the size of dustbin lids and weigh the size of a small child have been spotted basking in the shallows of Torquay Harbour. The giant barrel jellygish are harmless, but huge – growing up to 90cm and weighing as much as 35kg. Rising temperatures are thought to be behind the largest barrel jellyfish population along that coastline in years. Warmer sea temperatures are thought to have provided bountiful food for the marine invertebrates – the largest jellyfish in our waters. Their presence will also be delighting the local leatherback sea turtles that delight in snacking on the super-size jelly treats.
