Residents of South Carolina recently found something strange (pictured above) on the shores of Folly Beach. Folly Beach is a city of about 2000 people, located on historic Folly Island, in Charleston County, South Carolina, United States.
The people viewing the beached beast thought it might be a “Sea Monster.”
The stranded creature was large, scaly, and, well, looked monstrous.
But a local vet quickly identified it. It was an Atlantic sturgeon (Acipenser oxyrinchus).
End of mystery.
I do not feel we need to go so far as to call this Folly Beach’s Folly, now do we?
