What Was the New Zealand Monster/Dragon? by John Koster

Unidentified animal caught in the net of fishing vessel off New Zealand. (Taiyo Fishery Co./Michihiko Yano) On April 25, 1977, the Japanese fishing ship Zuiyo Maru, trawling for mackerel off the coast of New Zealand, snagged a rotting corpse at a depth of 900 feet and hauled in the remains of a beast that no one anywhere seemed to be able to identify.

"It's not a fish, whale, or any other mammal," said Professor Yoshinori Imaizumi of Japan's National Science Museum, in the Asahi Shimbun newspaper story that broke the news to the world. "It's a reptile, and the sketch looks very like a plesiosaur. This was a precious and important discovery for human beings. It seems to show that these animals are not extinct after all."

Whatever it is, it looks like it's covered by a canvas tarp.

Noticed that as well. Happened quite some time ago. Are they still unable to figure out what it was? :-?

i've seen this several times before and did my research on it. at first they thought it might be one of those extinct underwater dino-type monsters ala Loch Ness monster, but found out that thats how a rotting whale carcass looks like. the points of deterioation are like what happens to a dead whale. i've read that most scientists that has seen the picture conclude that the creature is most likely a whale carcass, although nobody can prove it because only a picture exists now and the japanes fisherman didn't keep it. of course, like everyone else, i was so sure that they had found a underwater dinosaur initially, but thats now unlikely.
