    Check Out This 18 Foot Sea Monster That Was Just Found Off The Coast Of California

    The stuff of legends. When Catalina Island Marine Institute (CIMI) marine science instructor was snorkeling, she spotted the carcass of something amazing: an 18-foot-long oarfish.

    It took 15 people to help get this creature out of the water.

    The fish is believed to have died from natural causes and the camp is in talks with museums regarding what to do with it. Here it is on the beaches of Toyon Bay, Catalina Island.
