Unidentified Creature Discovered in Malaysia

A Malaysian fisherman uncovered the skeletal remains of an as yet unidentified creature. The carcass was found rotting in the mud of an area river and could measure 5-7 meters long. Local fisheries officers have as yet been unable to identify the creature.

"It's like nothing I've seen before, but these are partial remains so I don't want to speculate"

Maybe one of our readers, perhaps someone versed in animal anatomy, could identify this for us or at least pass this along to the IAFFV. Also if they have any idea what such a creature might eat, it sure would make tying the fly to catch one much easier.

As one versed in animal anatomy I would have to agree that early speculation at this point, particularly based on photographic evidence alone, is risky. I would expect DNA analysis to be quite useful in the identification of this unusual creature. As to what fly such a creature might eat or be attracted to, I would try a Zugbug. It appears that your friend Zugbug has been quite successful at attracting...and catching things lately.

Looks like ole' Zug is in for quite a fight to land this fishy.
