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?

  1. 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.

  2. 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.
