A mysterious dolphin-like creature with no eyes or fins has reportedly washed up on a Mexican beach.

Fishermen at the popular surfers’ beach of Destiladeras told local media it could have come from deep in the Pacific Ocean.

 It was said to have been discovered at Destiladeras, a beach popular with surfers and sunbathers in Punta Mita

The discovery of the stranded beast – with a strange tail similar to an eel’s – took place in Punta Mita, in the western Mexican state of Jalisco which is on the Pacific coast, reports Tribuna De La Bahia.

With its dolphin-like head and sharp teeth, but lacking any flippers, it apparently startled many people.

Tribuna said that the “strange creature” was found dead and “caused a furore on social media” and among residents.
