Canvey Island Monsters

Region of origin: Canvey Island, England

In the 1950s two similar animal corpses with wide mouths and stumpy legs washed up from the North Sea into the Thames estuary and onto the shores of Canvey Island. The bodies were never properly identified before being disposed of but commonly believed to have been a species of deep-sea fish, possibly monkfish or anglerfish, which had made their way to the surface.
