About Montauk-Monster.com

Hi, I’m Nicky Papers. I’m the founder of Montauk-Monster.com. I’ve lived in Suffolk County, NY my entire life. The reason why I’m dedicating my time to provide the world with information on the Montauk Monster is because I was vacationing in Montauk with friends during the week that the beast was discovered. Montauk is a wonderful town full of great restaurants, fishing, and surf. While staying at the Ronjo Motel, a guest informed me that a “weird creature” washed up on shore. He directed me to where it was located on the beach where I saw the beast up close.

Upon first glimpse, it looked like a dead dog. Looking closer, it resembled something that I’ve never seen before. The creature was decomposing in the sun as there was a slight stench in the air.

Honestly, I didn’t think too much of it the day I saw it. I had a brief conversation with my waitress that night at Gosman’s Dock. She also had heard the story from one of the bus boys working there.

Little did I know that what I saw that day would be on the news, be the topic of dinner conversations, and become an internet sensation. Since I saw it up close and personal, I will try my best to uncover the truth about the “Montauk-Monster”. Please check back frequently as the discovery continues.

Warm regards and best wishes,

Nicky Papers

    I think this creature is a creature of the depths of the oceans, has lately been instances of animals of the depths, like that pre historic shark that was discovered in Japan, this shark lives porfundesas 6000 meters in the oceans, who knows what monster you speak can be a pre historic creature …

    From: A big fan of yours:)

    Continues, you’ll discover the whole truth;)

  2. abby santos says:

    hey i was wondering if any scientist figured out what it was? can you let meknow by sending it to my email above. thanks…ur biggest fan…:)

  3. Alex says:

    Nuno, you’re a dumbass, it obviously isn’t something that lives in the ocean.

    Only one of these “montauk-monster” pictures even looks like a new species. It is hard to identify that one picture, but the rest, i’m 100% sure are dead dogs. You can see the distinct canine snout. None of these pictures look like the same kind of animal.

    No one is going to believe in a new species if 3/4 of the pictures of it can easily be identified as a dead dog.

  4. Bryan says:

    This monster is obviously of the nearby animal testing center Plum island. Not any monster from the depths of the ocean. If it happens more than once in that exact area including an unidentified human washed up containing elongated fingers and 5 holes drilled in it’s skull, I think it’s more than some depths of the ocean animal. Plum island research center

  5. Louis Turco says:

    I assure you this is not the Montauk Monster. Read about the Montauk Project and learn what the real monster is all about. While out there go to Camp Hero near the Radar Antenna and see how you feel.

  6. Jim Hodges says:

    As much as I would like to believe in something like the Montauk Monster; I can more easily believe it is some poor, unfortunate, tortured being from Plum Island.

  7. cora says:

    Apairentley it is a dead dog.Everybody knows that,right?

    smartest kid on earth,du

  8. Megan says:

    hi, ok so i saw the “montauk monster on tv when it was aired.. and wow thats one hell of a animal .. i do believe it can be from plum island, its possible they tried to mix genes from 2 dif types of animals to create a new species and it went wrong and they just discarded it. what u want to no is why is there no follow up on what the animal is and why is it all being covered up? some thing is going on here

  9. crystal says:

    if you want to know more,, there is an hour long special on it THIS MONDAY NIGHT!!!!… its on Nat Geo Wild at 6pm pacific and again at 9pm pacific… The show in which it will be on is called WILD CASE FILES!!

    crystal, age 13
    most intelligent kid in the world, duh

  10. Smart Guy says:

    does anyone think this is just a dead sea turtle with no shell?

  11. jack says:

    i say the creature is a tapir if you look at the skeleton they look fairly similar, though the long fingers, and teeth.

  12. michael says:

    it was found to be a decomposing raccoon. i wish it was a new species, but sadly its a raccoon.

  13. Teresa Harn says:

    According to Dr. Darren Naish, a zoologist at the University of Portmouth (UK), as interviewed on the “Wild Case Files,” a NatGeo network TV show, this carcass “is a relatively mundane familiar animal that’s really quite common on the eastern coast of the US. It is a decomposing RACCOON!”

  14. Vana h says:

    Dang I never new of this till my hubby told me

  15. Ryan Sweeney says:

    They figured it out it was a raccoon.

  16. irene rivera says:

    what are they? where do they come from?

  17. sharon says:

    i think its odd that these creature would just show up out of no where around the same time and no one knows were they came from also the scientist need to study these creatures and try to see what type of habitat they lived in.

    also if these creatures could be from space then i think its odd that nobody saw them come to earth im just waiting to know what these creatures are and where they came from

  18. Megan says:

    I think that it is kind of cute. Call me weird, but I LIKE HIM. I think we should name him. How about LEVIATHAN. That’s a good name, I like it.

  19. Sam says:

    I think the next time someone takes these pictures, they should put a dollar next to the body so someone can get an idea of what the size is. In any case it does look like a decomposing raccoon.

  20. ALLIE CAT says:

    Anyone who thinks any of them are raccoons is very stupid. There is a lot of messed up things happening, open your eyes.

  24. lil many says:

    the montauk monster….. was it hiding? why would it come out now? why not earlier when we were discovering the world? did it get over its fears like us and show its self? why are we finding it dead all the time? just a few questins you can think of 🙂 good luck, will find more info with these questins (i think)

    from: lil many

  30. justin boettger says:

    hi that whole mutant idea is the one im following

  31. justin boettger says:

    hi again i think you are all ungrateful snobs. god gives us a new animal and you just throw it back at him… JERKS

  32. Ghost says:

    I’m not sure… all these corpses look pretty… sketchy to me. I mean, I’ve seen a lot of fake corpses that have been made to spark things like this
    (eg. http://lh3.ggpht.com/hydmastipics/SK0hsdyU6SI/AAAAAAAAZGg/P42YAGAUDsI/s800/183336image034.jpg)
    And how come they never look the same? I’m just saying…

  33. thewatcher says:

    I would not be too surprised if thecorpses are merly bloated dogs. If I would you, If you discover the truth , I would NOT post it on this blog…

  34. Yvan medina says:

    I think that the montauk monster was hidden in the secret laboratory in montauk for testing animals.Im sure that the monster just escaped or there was a breaching security of some kind I live here in australia so if i had the chance to go to new york,i will find out where this monster is from

  35. 12 year old says:

    y r scientist not in any of these montauk monster photos, doing there little research stuff, hello, if u want 2 prove their real it should b on tv or something not on youtube because some things are not to be true on youtube, any one agree!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  36. Jordan Emanuele says:

    Me nd my mother were camping out at Hither Hills State park. One late night while the rest of my family lay asleep inside the tent, Me and my mother were wide awake when we saw the shadow of what appeared to be some sort of creature with sharp teeth and claws. I Was 5 years old at the time but i was able to conjure up the image of a bobcat. My mother agreed with me but when we asked the State Rangers and other natives of Montauk, they both assured us that there were no bobcats anywhere around Montauk. The most memorable part of the experience was the noise the creature made and the way it arched its back when it hissed, showing off its sharp teeth. we both were able to clearly see an outline of the teeth on our tent wall and were extremley afraid. After seeing the propoganda of this “Montauk Monster” I believe the first one found could have been the very creature that still shakes my memories of that day.

  37. andrew says:

    its proven its a racoon thats not a beak its the snout with partely lost skin and the racoon lost all its hair sincerly andrew

  38. kimmiefo says:

    being you’re from long island, i’m sure you’ve heard of “camp hero” out in montauk? if not, take a look at the history and even the “alleged” experiments that went on there and supposedly STILL go on there. (http://www.philadelphia-experiment.com/Camp_Hero_Fort_Montauk.htm). i’m from mid-long island and no i’m not one of those crazy conspiracy-theorists, but what the military and scientists were capable of back in the 40’s (phoenix project, for one) makes it very likely that something along gene mutations would be a piece of cake today. after the base closed down, the government gave the property rights to NY state to turn it into a park, but there was one strange condition: the state now owned the surface, but were ABSOLUTELY NOT allowed to dig anywhere underneath the surface. also, from down on the beach you can see wires going in and out of the bluffs. maybe i, along with many others, are jumping to conclusions, but last time i checked, 2+2=4.

    camp hero: known for top secret military base, mind control experiments, quantum physic experiments, etc etc.
    montauk monster: seemingly mutated beast never before seen by the human eye, looks like a cross between multiple species, just a completely out of the ordinary animal that no one important really seems to be paying attention to.

    is it just me, or is this all too coincidental? all in all, if i had to guess, i’d think that this montauk monster was absolutely an experiment, possibly gone wrong and more possibly thrown away by the supposed still-active camp hero.


  39. orlando attorneys says:

    Some of these look like bloated sea nutria and others like dead otters.

  40. mw2 rocks says:

    hi i think its real! im been thinking scentific life form fell off of a boat and drownded and washed up at the shore and have been lost contact me at 4454413 thanks 🙂

  41. Nappy says:

    I Think U All Are Nuts And That These Are All Types Of Animals That Have Been Washed Up On To Shore After Sitting In A Fucking Ocean For Who Knows How Long…Not Creepy At All…No Such Thing As Monsters…I Believe In Ghosts More Than I Do A Fuckin Monster…Get Ahold Of Urselves…Ur All Fuckin Lost…Truthfully Nap Nap

  42. Shareena Michelle Lee says:

    you should tell them to give the creature to a scientist to research the pigment, the blood, dna to find out exactly how it was born and what possibilites mabey caused it to look like that. Just to keep the people safe from harm and to close down the beaches because all three washed up on shore dead and its a really big and dangerous discovery

  43. lady gaga the second says:

    that thing is ugly they look like raccoons that stayed in water to long and they lost all their fur and their bone formed into a beak

  44. lady gaga the second says:

    that thing is ugly i think its a raccoon that stayed in the water to long and the fur came off and the moth bone formed in to a beak

  45. tim says:

    when was it found

  46. KylerMA says:

    Ok, I get on the sight for about 3 minutes and I’m hating whoever is posting all this. Its one thing if it really is a “Monster”. But putting pictures of an otter on here and saying “We have no Idea what it is.” It ruins what is real. Put some effort in to it. A 5 year old can tell me what an otter looks like jeez.

  47. Taylor Reints says:

    The Montauk Monster is a decomposing bulldog or raccoon, that’s all…

  48. Sofia Antonia Milone says:

    All dead things look monstrous and barely reconisable when they’ve been in the water for a long time. Even humans.

    There is no truth beyond that here. They tell you it’s just a raccoon/dog/whatever because it is. Basically study of the pictures, let alone the skeleton proves this.

  49. Brad says:

    this monsters are just a different type of it could be otter cross dog whoever is sending this is a stuiped idiot who thinks that there is such thing as a stuipd montauk andever is sending this is a thick headed loser .

  50. Renee says:

    Anyone consider the thought that these things could be demons? read the bible.

  51. shawn says:

    listen i have seen this thing myself up close and ill tell u know it is no dead dog or racoon. this thing is def differnt from any dead thing ive ever seen. i call animal control and waited there just to tlk to the guy and he had no clue either.

  52. Jessica says:

    I believe it is a raccoon or possum decomposed. Especially with the long thing tail and finger-like front legs.

  53. Raven says:

    I really don’t doubt that it’s a real corpse, and decomposing corpses do tend to look like many things and are the biggest candidates for being called “monsters”, but what exactly is a “monster”? It’s a beast type animal that has no name or classification, so technically this is a “monster”, but so was every animal until we learned about it and named it. This corpse does have some very interesting features, but what concerns me most is the amount of fuss this corpse has stirred up, yet it doesn’t seem to be important enough to get someone down there to get some basic DNA lab results to stop bickering. And where is this corpse now?

  54. Martin says:

    Something washed up on the shore of Milford, CT today. I have pics and video. I call it the Milford Monster.

  55. luke says:

    If you look closeley it looks like the montauk monster is flipping you off!and it cant be a racoon because it’s TOO BIG!!!and if you go to the front page, go down a little and you will see a creature that looks like a cow! if you dont agree that it is a de-composing cow, look at the tail!if you still dont agree because it washed up on a beach, than an experiment went wrong at plum island, and the scientists didn’t tell the cops and three montauk monsters went loose in the ocean, drowned, andwashed up on the beach!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  56. luke says:

    if you look closeley, ther is a FLYon the upper back next to the neck!(the fly looks like a black dot.)

  57. Mbirl132 says:

    Look, iv’e heard of this, and Iv’e never seen one up close, but I can tell you this. They are experimenting on humans. They take cruise ships and then fill them with the people they call. Im not making this up, because me and my friends had an experience I will never forget. They experement on people there… I don’t care if you beleive me or not, but If you look close at the pictures, it has a bodly form. Just take a look for yourselfs, and you will see. Message me if you want my story… I will let you know.

  58. braydon dustin harrell says:

    i hear that the first montauk monsters body mysteriously dissapeared.does this mean it is still alive

  59. Shadow says:

    Some unknown beast… this is cool… I’ve studied mythology and mythical beasts. This interests me… such a cool thing, maybe its some unknown water mammal that lives to deep in the ocean weve never seen it..?

  60. Rahchelle says:

    this thing gives me the crips,I hope I never see one up close or I just might
    drop dead!But I’d really like to know where it came from.

  61. Jade (my own nickname) says:

    i happemd to hear about this on a show called aceiiit aleins (can’t spellll or type o my phone) i have juust heard about this demon of llegends that resemble a photo on here. i am so creepped outby this!

  62. Geri Gray says:

    Hi, I see by your website that many photos have been sent. I live at the Jersey Shore and while walking in Asbury Park I spotted this gross anomal which washed up on shore. I grabbed a few photos and then left quickly never really thinking about it again until I watched the History Channel show Aliens and Monsters this week and they spoke of the Montauk Monster. I googled and found your site. How can I send the photos to you or what should I do with them. I, like another couple on your page, wanted to get away from the strange thing that laid on the beach. It smelled and I assumed it must have been a rotting and bloated dog.

  63. Jim Speiser says:

    Just curious, is it large enough to be the corpse of a manatee or dugong?

  64. Bob Jerk says:

    I know exactly what animal they are:


    It washes up from the ocean, due to bloating – the skin stretches quite far before breakage so it is very elastic as is found in an aquatic creature, it has: 10 front toes with thumbs and 10 rear toes (no dew claws), a rat tail ¾ the length of the rear legs, small upright ears, enlarged and meshing upper and lower canine teeth, teeth between the canines that are sharp for catching and tearing (only two pair along the bottom), short opposable front toes with retractable claws, a long body compared to the legs, the legs are all doing the full splits so the hip joints are very flexible, it has thick brown hair over ¼” long.

    It is not a Manatee and Dugong because they have flat semi-circle tails and no rear legs.

    It is not a raccoon because they are never over 55 inches long (this is the record) and have 3 pairs of lower incisors and no opposable thumbs.

    It is not an Opossum because they are never over 40 inches long and have 50 teeth including 3 pairs of lower incisors.

    It is not a dog because dogs: do not live in the ocean or have aquatic skin, have 8 rear toes (or 10 IF they have dew claws), have flat teeth between their canines for incising and snipping, have no opposable toes, and cannot lay in FULL splits.

    It is not a cow because cows: have utters if female, and have 3 pairs of incisors between their lower canines, and they have only 2 “toes” or hooves per foot.

    So what is it?

    It is a Sea Otter! The Sea Otter is the ONLY animal fitting everything in the photos: it is the only otter with a short tail, weighs up to 100 pounds, grows up to 6 feet long, aside from seals – the sea otter is the only carnivore in the world that has 2 pairs of lower incisors rather than 3 pairs, and every other feature you can observe from internet photos.

    See this Otter Skull for further proof:


  65. Terry says:

    I live in Miami and we never see animals decompose like this. It’s so strange

  66. Mystress says:

    With all these animal bodies that are washing up, why has no one taken the frakking bodies to have them examined before they disappear? Doesn’t that make sense considering that as humans when we find something dead that is unusual we throw rocks at it to make sure it is dead. Then we find a stick and poke the crap out of it. Then we try to move it around so we can get a better look at it. Then we take pics of it if we can to try to figure out what the heck is it. I don’t get why no one has taken these animals to a vet or facility some place to determine whether or not these are dog’s, raccoon’s, dog-rats, cat-dogs, and so on…..

  67. Jessica says:


    It looks like Nutria –

  68. Piet says:

    Has anybody ever considered it may be a bear?

    Most extra photo’s on the main page of later corpses are certainly bears, the tufts of brown hair and large size confirm it. It is not hard to imagine a bears from up North dying at sea, drowning whatever, and washing up on Montauk, being at the end of a peninsula. Floating dead at sea, they WILL lose most of their fur, that’s not an issue.

    Now, the original photo is tricky. There IS some brown hair at the “monster’s” throat if you look close. I see only a few problems, 1 being the longish tail, the other being the smallish size (in comparison to the fly on the shoulder). It may be a bear cub. With respect to the skull, no problem. The lower jaw is half buried, you can only make out the right half, which sports a canine. The nose is already decayed, giving the upper jaw a beak-like appearance. The legs are somewhat too thin perhaps. Oh well, take it into consideration.

  69. dreamgirl says:

    hi Nicky, i saw ur show last night (1/30/2013) on the Smithsonian channel. as soon as i read the show description i couldn’t wait to watch. this topic has intrigued me the moment i saw it in the news years ago. it amazed me how quickly the media pushed this aside and no one ever spoke of it again. i believe it’s a governmental experiment. there’s no way it’s a raccoon with a hooked beak. that “conclusion” on the show was disappointing to say the least. i’m not buying it. the main question, which oddly was not the focus of the show, is WHERE IS THIS THING? WHO TOOK IT AWAY? WHAT HAPPENED TO IT AFTER ALL THE PICS & MEDIA ATTENTION? so, no one saw anyone remove this creature from the beach??!! tell me something!

  70. Dianne in Australia says:

    Identical ‘thing’ found in Wales UK this week …


  71. me says:

    ich denke das diese komischen tiere ganz klar mutationen sind.

  72. raquel says:

    The idea of the nutria (swamp rat) looks plausible.
    (Although I’d never heard of them before)

  73. Jesse says:

    I can’t help but to think, unlikely as it may be, it seems like something a desperate government would do for an increasingly overpopulated county, especially considering how the government already is about labeling GMOs… Crazy thought: what if this originated from, say, I dunno, Long Island Animal Testing Facility? Consider that over 85% of all foods in your local Walmart are genetically modified. We’re already dependent on GMOs based on that alone. What if this is the government’s fucked up method of creating new food source? What if they’re actually unbeknownst to the public, using this ‘monster’ as they do any other chicken, pig, or cow? What if I’m half these photos, the creature isn’t actually bloated from decomposition , but rather, buffed up like most factory farmed chickens are with steroids and such? Imagine seeing a chicken in place for the creature here that was intended for the slaughterhouse. One might think it was actually wild due to the nature of discovery, contrary to it’s abnormal size and composure. It’s not THAT far out of an idea. Especially when you consider in growing population rates, advancements in genetic engineering, secrecy of what goes on in the Long Island facility, plus how fucked up our society is when it comes to properly labeling food for GMOs, free range, grass fed, et cetera. Imagine. What if you’re unwittingly eating this ugly ass thing. We already know the government hasn’t a conscience when it comes to being honest , or simply hiding the ugly truth. Landfills, pollution, or how many extinctions we’ve caused each year. America hides the ugly truth. Factory farms aren’t publicised, nor are any GMOs for that. Their secret testing bases aren’t publicised by anyone but the conspirators. Why would this be?

  74. Jesse says:

    Damn autocorrect. Country* not county. Noticed that right after posting that.

  75. Dino says:

    Everyone should re-read bob jerk’s comment. I wad just about to post the same. He is on point. These “monsters” are decomposing sea otters.

  76. Emily W. says:

    Hi. I’m a Long Island native born and raised in the west south shore of the island closer to the city than to montauk but never the less the moment I heard about this and saw the pictures I was interested I always been fascinated by science and this is basically in my backyard(kinda). So I haven’t really scrolled through the comments but I know of plum island of the coast of Long Island towards sufok county and actually where this thing washed up. This is supposibly by talk a place where animal testing goes on and “supposibly” where lime dieseas originated. I always wonder why if you get bit by a tick in ny they make you get tested for limes and new someone who’s brother had it and didnt know until he had unexplained seizures. My bf moved to South Carolina and has been bitten by a few ticks and they don’t have that type of worry down there. Ok I know off topic kind of because I believe if this isn’t a water bloated decomposing opossum which I’ve seen because one drowned in my pool and it was after the summer and it was there prob a couple months kinda looked like that thing but wasn’t very big and it was bloated because of decomposing and the water absorbed. I never like to assume things until I have the facts but I’ve talked with friend and family about this thing and we all seem to agree if its not a opossum or some known rodent is it because of animal testing or genetically engineered animals at plum island? Idk just food for thought.

  77. Murh44 says:

    I have to say, this is truly unbelievable. It is amazing. And it is NOT a raccoon or an opossum, because it has a beak. FYI.

  78. Eric Ison says:

    What you are looking at is a humouse. Half human, half mouse. The patent to create this was put forth in the courts long ago. It was said so that no one would ever attempt it, but we know that is a lie. If you can imagine a rodent and a human mixed together you would have traits of both expressed. Look at the skull. It’s like almost human but still retaining a rodent type look. The nose because it mixed traits of both human and mouse is not elongated but stunted like a beak…etc etc.
