Great Yarmouth student Tyler Smith, 18, found this mystery creature near to Caister lifeboat station.


A student was “shocked” to find this mystery sea creature washed up near to Caister lifeboat station.

Tyler Smith, 18, of Garfield Road, Great Yarmouth, was strolling along the sand when he made the unusual find this week.

He said: “I was walking my dog and she noticed it before I did.

“It looks to me like a baby shark but it’s not very clear as some of it has been eaten by sea gulls!

“It was right by the shore and could well have been washed up by the sea, but it didn’t look like it had been dead for very long.”
