Dr. Fong needs your help - Unknown Sea Beast

Dr. Fong Says:
Is it real or fake?


I found this real photo postcard the other day. The small writing says 30,000 lbs 45 feet. So what is it?

I know that the
readers at Dr. Fong's House of Mysteries know more about most things than most people, so I thought I would pose the question to you, my dear readers.

Please post in the comments if you have any information about the above picture.

Whale shark?

It's most likely it is either a Whale shark or Nurse shark.

Basking Shark, case closed.

Actually it's the monster shark caught in 1912 off Knight's Key, FL. An enterprising promoter skinned it and stuffed it, a job that took several months, and then toured the country with it, billing it as "The Only Creature of the Kind in the World."

The 26,594-pound whale shark was towed to Miami, preserved, stuffed and exhibited on a railroad flat car. The sign on the flat car read "weight 30,000 lbs. Length 45 ft." All went well until it was accidentally destroyed by fire in 1922.

It's a whale shark. Confirm and reconfirm again based on the white spots on the head section.
