What it is has stumped plenty of people, but hasn’t stopped locals from posing for selfies with the scary sea monster.

The mass, which some have speculated is a whale’s carcass, is the latest in a series of unusual deep-sea creatures to have been spotted after the 6.7 earthquake, which left six people dead and at least 120 injured, as well as damaging buildings and an airport.

People on Mindanao’s northern coast reportedly spotted a number of oarfish measuring up to 30ft long in the days following the quake earlier this month.

The earthquake is believed to have been set off by movement in the Philippine fault, which sits in the so-called Pacific ‘Ring of Fire’.
