Is it just my overactive imagination, or does this piece of driftwood washed ashore on the sand at Rhossili Bay look like a prehistoric Mososaur or some other kind of sea serpent?

Nope, it looks like that to me too!
I saw this piece of driftwood at various states of the tide. It looked most realistic as the waves began to swamp it at dusk – as if it was slinking away to the safety of the depths once more.
Very cool. It looks like some of the ancient sea creatures we saw at the Smithsonian two days ago. What a neat find.
Hi, Jessica. Although this was just a lookalike driftwood sea monster in South Wales, closer to home in Dorset, ichthyosaurs and other ancient sea creatures are a frequent find as fossils in the rocks along the Jurassic Coast.
Happy Christmas and a wonderful New Year.
using the second image for a school project. typed ‘prehistoric beach’ into google image search & found this. it’s absolutely perfect. thank you so much & you have a beautiful eye 🙂
Glad you found what you needed. Thank you for telling me. It really did look like a monster didn’t it? Did you see the other posting on the blog about sea serpents at Whiteford?
