Recently, an alleged monster creature has surfaced in Vietnam, with many scratching their heads due to the claims of how it was found.

According to Japanese new site Karapaia, the monster was dug up in Vietnam rather than found at a beach or near the water.

Typically sea monsters and large corpses are often found from an oceanic source, so this claim is what's causing quite the stir online.

Take a look at the video below to check out the monster for yourself:


Despite many being confounded at the monster, most of the observers online are claiming it to be a sea monster, or more precisely, the body of a beached whale.

"If you consider a whale a monster...OK, it's a monster," writes Roberto Berti on YouTube.

"The video... is most likely a recording of a beached, deceased whale being loaded on a trailer for burial," wrtes Preston Phro on Rocket News 24.

"It seems that in Vietnam, whales-dead or alive-are considered harbingers of good luck, and fishermen are always happy to see them in their waters. However, when one of them shows up dead, the fishermen will work together to pull the creatures to shore for entombment."

"It's very obviously a whale. It's got a blow hole, fins and everything," adds StagShiftZayas.

So there you have it. Although some news outlets are calling it a monster, the body is a sea monster at best, and more than a whale corpse.
