A new image from boingboing

The original image of this creature, seen here, left people a bit breathless. Was it a dog with a beak or a sea turtle with long legs? Were we glad it was found dead on a Long Island beach and not alive in Manhattan like the lice in “Cloverfield?” Was its appearance the beginning of The End?

Relax. Armageddon is not upon us, and from the looks of this new image of the Montauk Monster, the curious creature was nothing more than a badly decomposed dog.

That was, of course, the most obvious explanation early on. For more background and Monty the monster’s Jewish connection, read GeekHeeb.
