Skeleton of mysterious sea beast that was washed up on Scottish beach

Mystery surrounds the skeleton of a mysterious creature that washed up on a Scottish beach during Storm Ciara.  The intriguing beast was found on the Aberdeenshire coastline on Sunday as the country endured 90mph winds and torrential rain, Daily Mail reported.

A photograph of the creature was shared on a Facebook page prompting hundreds of suggestions as to what it might be.

Some thought it a whale or a dolphin, while others rubbished this suggestion saying the 'horns' of the creature make it a thresher sharks - which have been known to enter British waters during the summer. 

But even marine biologists are baffled, with Professor David Lusseau from the University of Aberdeen, saying he would need more information. 

He told MailOnline: 'Unfortunately from just this photo we can't tell much other than it is a whale of some form. We would need shots of the front end (and probably a bit of poking around) to get an ID.'
