COULD IT BEEEEEEE SATAN?
Where's Mulder and Scully? This is the oddest thing I've seen in a while. And I see a lot of odd things where I live.
Rumors are circulating that is is Satan. Seriously? If this is what the devil looks like than throw a few more coals on the barbecue cause it's dinner time.
Others speculate that it is a turtle minus it's shell. First off. Turtles hatch with their shells. Their spine is attached to the shell. If this were a turtle, there would be serious trauma to it's back.
And then, there's the possibility that it is all a hoax. This picture came from someone and it was passed on to someone else and now the creature has been whisked away by someone.
There is a chance that whatever this is escaped from Palm Island Animal Disease Center which is located close to where this thing washed up on shore. The USDA boasts on their site that "We're equally proud of our safety record. Not once in our nearly 50 years of operation has an animal pathogen escaped from the island." Okay. A pathogen has never escaped. What about an animal carrying a pathogen?
Satan, Turtle, experiment gone wrong. Who knows. Whatever it is chose a bad time to try to get publicity seeing as how this country is in the middle of an election campaign and all people are talking about is McCain's ad comparing Obama to Britney Spears.
