A MASSIVE sea beast has made a return after washing up on foreign shores following a spate of earthquakes
Beach-goers were baffled when the rare giant oarfish beached itself on February 15.
But seismologists from Japan, who refer to the beasts as the “Messenger from the Sea God’s Palace”, found correlations between the sea serpents washing ashore and rumbling earthquakes.
A series of impressive photographs show off the mysterious creature’s length as the world’s longest bony fish at more than 30ft.
But the sea serpent was dead when it turned up on the shores in Rojales, Carmen Aqusan del Norte, in Philippines.
Despite its scaly appearance – the monster is not a reptile.
In a post on Facebook, a baffled beach-goer said: “According to Japanese seismologists told the Japan times, the fish in the sea as oarfish are more sensitive to tremor or under sea reason evacuation in their habitat to find a safer place.
“However, live anywhere that the oarfish due to warm temperatures in the upper part of sea kompara in their natural habitat.”
Massive oarfish live in tropical shallows across the world.
The snake-like beast were first spotted in 1772.
