The term Globster refers of a relatively narrow spectrum of beached carcasses, which have appeared on beaches all over the world from Florida to Tasmania. Described as being virtually unrecognizable masses of fibrous collagen, most of these Globsters share an array of traits, some of which include: Long, tentacle-like limbs, a tough, rubbery hide, gill like slits and long fleshy lobes which run along its sides.
Other accounts mention the appearance of mouth holes and cilia like appendages on these SEA MONSTERS, however there has to date never been a single reliable report of any organs which were recognizable as eyes.
Often thought to be the storm ravaged corpses of the as yet unconfirmed OCTOPUS GIGANTEUS or colossal jellyfish, many of these corpses display more primordial mollusk traits. Some have even been compared to colossal, de-shelled, horseshoe crabs.
While hard-line skeptics continue to espouse their belief that Globsters are nothing more than unrecognizable blobs of severely decomposed whale blubbr — which is often the case — there are a few intriguing examples where the biological evidence does not support this conclusion.
