It's on ABC ????
It will probably tie into the season finale of Lost...
or Dancing with the Stares.

I'm guessing it's a hoax. If it were, real we would surely have heard what the first one was. If there's a chance that this thing is a diseased or mutated animal, wouldn't the NY Dept. of Health by obliged to do an autopsy? It also makes me suspicious that there's a blog devoted to this thing where you can buy a t-shirt.

My guess is that the hoaxers made several different models, some from latex and some from real dead animals. It doesn't look like a computer model.

Anatomically it looks like a domestic pig... with the exception of the skull. I suppose, considering the cranial and neck tissue has been peeled backwards and my belief in a hoax, that the original skull was replaced with something I can't put my finger on at the moment.

But in all seriousness, I do hope that it is legit, or a genetic mutation. I love knowing that there are things in this world that in my lifetime will never be explained. :)

I read somewhere that it was determined that 1.0 was a raccoon. There is no beak just a jaw bone with missing teeth and a weird camera angle. The paws and teeth match those of a raccoon. Floating in salt water tends to do crazy things to a rotting mammillian body. I'm sure 2.0 has a perfectly normal explanation.
