Josh Menar, the 19-year-old snowboarder from Lake Tahoe who found this “Chupacabra/Montauk Monster-looking creature” on the Pacific beach in San Diego last week, sent these pics to Vice magazine, telling them it was about two feet in length, and that “it had the body shape of a pig—kind of a fat stomach, middle area. And the canines were just ridiculously large.” He then went on to say: “I didn’t know if it was some creature from around here. I’m from Massachusetts and I don’t see shit like that ever. My friends were like no, I’ve never seen anything like that and were pretty tripped up about it. I thought it was pretty funny and kind of mysterious.” The readers over at Gawker aren’t buying it though. “It’s an opossum,” claims MajorMoFo05. “Look up the skull. The head ride is diagnostic. And the tooth directly behind the canines. And the curvature of the front incisors. Sorry to burst your bubble. But hey, now you know why not to ever touch an angry opossum!” I don’t know. I’m sort of hoping it IS a demon from the deep. What do YOU think?
Behold, the San Diego Demonoid!
