A massive, ultra-rare fish has washed up on the shores of a popular Australian beach.
The large animal was first discovered on July 25, near Point Hawdon in the country’s Victoria province.
Cath Rampton and her husband Tom were some of the first visitors to find the “alien-like” creature. The couple told the Daily Mail that, despite being veterinarians, they’d never seen anything like it.
Unfortunately, the animal wasn’t an alien, but rather an ocean sunfish. The species, which is considered vulnerable, can grow up to 14 feet long and weigh as much as 5,000 pounds.
