Oathy posts a comment. The same tired insults get 'boarded. It's positively Pavlovian.

Did you leave this in woods?

May I ask WHAT THE FUK you think this is? Yevelle found this yesterday, it was not near a river or lake, yet is seems to have fins and fangs? This is Yosemite not freakin Alligator Garville. Maybe it is one of those common animal corpses that decompose and then don't resemble the creature they ....


One of you smart people figure this out please? Yevelle is freaked out and thinks this came from the sky.

Maybe the damn thing did fall from the sky.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9MmxkrO2p6k

At first look at only the skull, I could imagine a small bear bodied animal that looked like that. It would be covered in hair while alive, and resemble a bobcat or small mountain lion in body type.

Nah. It's a leftover from a Kaos_King story.

The crooked snout gives it away as a post-spawn salmon. Plus, a quick GIS search of "salmon carcass" turns up dozens of photos that look just like this guy. Judging from the condition of the carcass, this was most likely an eagle's meal. Eagles tend to not eat the skin and simply pull the flesh out from inside the body. They will often carry their meal a good distance away from the river before consuming it in the top of a tree.

Bears, on the other hand, tend to stay near the water when they eat their catches because a) they are larger and need more than one fish to satiate their hunger and b) they want to protect their fishing spot. They also consume most all of the fish, skin, bones and all.

Man, I need to get back out west.

Eh Jeanneee thanks for the input. Funny how a common creature can look so strange in death...

Oh duh. Guess I should skim the previous comments first.

Looks like a salmon carcass to me. Although what it's doing in the middle of the woods, I wouldn't have any idea.

I think you have it Silvr! I am showing this to Yevelle, even tho the Salmon runs are several miles away, a big bird prolly flew it up here and dropped it. Thanks a lot, it looked mildly familiar, but I couldn't place it.

No mystery. Salmon. Find them all the time.

They pretty much all look like that after they rot.

Maybe a Gar Skrap, the heads of the Gar seem slimmer and the fins don't seem quite right tho.

Funny about Uber, I knew there would be ideas about this unknown creature and they would be GOOD ideas. Thanks to all.

Skrap, I know about this incident. http://yosemiteblog.com/2009/10/06/fisherman-pulls-piranha-like-fish-from-lake-outside-yosemite/
These crazy bastards are friends of mine, they took a couple of frozen piranha to the lake and put them on their lines and then reeled them in claiming they caught them in the lake. 'Twas a beer soaked hoax. Skillfully done, the media and a lot of locals still believe it.

I will peer at the other links you have provided. Thanks.

Thank you FALLEN! You managed to make this creepier than it already is. I will show the link to Yevelle. NOT! Hahaha

"The coelacanths constitute a rare order of fish that includes two extant species in the genus Latimeria: the West Indian Ocean coelacanth and the Indonesian coelacanth." Wikipedia

This might be a possibility, however when I looked at a coelacanth in the above article I did not see that it had fins on it 's head like the thing Yevelle found..

It's probably a fresh water gar. It probably did fall from the sky, after a fishhawk or eagle dropped it.


or maybe it's http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GWAR
