A giant mystery creature has washed up on a British coast and stumped beachgoers.

The mammoth animal carcass, decaying and with rotting skin, was found on the sand at Newport beach in Pembrokeshire.

A pelvis, vertebrae and flippers appear to be attached to the grey corpse, Wales Online reported.

Julie LaTrobe made the grisly discovery last Thursday.

She said: "It was quite a find, we poked at the remains trying to work out what it was for quite a time. It looked like a vertebra that was the size of my fist.

"It didn't have a head we could see, but a very definite pelvis and what looked like flippers. It didn't seem like bone, rather a cartilage, much paler and softer.

"It made a very interesting culmination to a beautiful wild walk along the estuary."

Pictures show what appears to be cartilage sticking out from within the sea creature.

But so far locals are none the wiser as to what the unusual beast is.

Guesswork has lead to suggestions that it could be a shark, a seal – or even a sheep.

The organisation, British Divers Marine Life, couldn't say for sure either, as the creature had decomposed to an unrecognisable state.

However, a spokesperson suggested that, based on its location, it was most likely to be a dolphin or a porpoise, and at a push perhaps a seal.

It is not the first unusual find on a British beach this year.

A smelly 15ft body with an "extra thing attached" was found in the summer in Liverpool.

The rancid corpse astounded locals who were unsure what to make of it.

Clearly, it had legs, potentially it had hooves – and it definitely had fur, the creature confused beachgoers.

And all who passed by agreed, it smelt horrible.

Elsewhere, the remains of a huge "alien-like" being were stumbled upon by a pair of vets in Victoria, Australia.

Coming in at nearly 6ft, the couple were perplexed by what they had discovered.

It turns out it was a – relatively small – sunfish.
