The Clapsadle Carcass: New Pictures Exposed.

This is a exclusive.

It’s been a few weeks since the “Clapsadle Carcass” emerged on the beach in New London, CT. Upon discovery by the Clapsadle family, very little has been discussed as to where the beast is or who is performing the research on it. It seems apparent that these monsters are real and being handled accordingly by authorities.

I was able to get my hands on some rare pictures of the “Clapsadle Carcass”. This beast looks much different from the original Montauk Monster pictures that were discovered earlier this summer. Loren Coleman of has appropriately named the bloated carcass. (Alliteration baby!) Seriously, what a great name for it?

An active member of member (sausage1) felt the same:

“I love this story for two reasons. First, we have explanations ranging from sheep to raccoon, from big cat to various sea mammals, which must say something about pinning an animal ID down when the circumstances are just slightly out of the ordinary. Second, the name “Clapsadle”. What a great name! The next time someone sees a badly coiffured mendicant after a night on the pop and says ‘I tell ya it was bigfoot!’ you can say ‘aw, Bob, have a day off, will ya, stop clapsadlin”

    Looks like someone shoved a dog skull into a raccoon carcass or something.

  2. dawn says:

    looks like a sheep

  3. just lookin says:

    This is obviously the washed up carcass of a sheep.
    You can still see the lambswool and the whole structure
    of the animal and its skull is consistent.


  4. just lookin says:

    p.s. Sheep can’t swim, as you can tell by its positioning. It didn’t stand a chance at sea.

  5. AngelD says:

    When did sheep start growing canines??

  6. Lago says:

    It is just another raccoon like the Montauk Monster was. (Not guessing here)

  7. Trixy says:

    That isn’t the same creature!!! Have you seen the original pictures?
    This looks stupid and nothing like the first pictures released. The maker of these pictures did a horrible job and should be ashamed of their self.

  8. megan says:

    OK! clearly, it is a SEAL! seals have sharp canine teeth like that because they hunt fish and penguins (meat–carnivorous), the front limbs of the body have long apendages, fingerlike, which are the bones inside a seal’s front flippers, its obviously covered in slightly furry but mostly sleek-looking seal skin, it has tons of blubber or fat to keep warm, it appears to have a small tail like a seal, and its skull is obviously one of a seal. i guess you could account for the shortness of its neck– maybe it died from some kind of neck injury that broke the neck and pushed it more towards its body, making it look like it has a freakishly short neck. anyways, IT IS A SEAL. get over it! 🙂

  9. Nicky Papers says:


    Not sure if this is a seal. If it is, it appears to have some deformities. Why is the body so compressed? What happened to it’s face? It is possible that another animal may have ate away at the face, but it appears very bloated to me. This may not be the same “species” at the Montauk Monster by this distance in CT is located closer to Plum Island. I would have to say that the likelyhood of this being a linked to Plum Island is greater than the Montauk Monster as it would have had to swim around (or float) around the forks of Long Island.

  10. science teacher says:

    Being a science teacher here’s what that animal is…it’s the rotting body of SEAL with the skull of deer (or dog) placed inside the seal body. If you look close enough you can even see how they tried to “cover” the open gaps between the rotting seal body and the unnattatched skull with chunks of seaweed. This is just the AWFUL sham job of some bored teenagers who live by the sea and wanted to stir some people up.

  11. TONY says:

    this is obviously not the same thing as the montauk monster..i do agree with the science teacher above where i’m typeing now about this perticular pic being a dead seal and the skull of another animal..and to be honest i think it’s a cover up…thats not the same thing as what was found in montauk…i mean where’d the beak go..the toes don’t even look the same..yea things rot but not so much so that it’s that degraded..esp in salt water..things do rot..but not half as fast as in fresh water..the salt is a preservitive there for it would still be in pretty good condition unless they waited forever and a day to take this pic…yea…it’s gotta be some thing to throw off the public..i mean really would you want people to know that a possable griffin,or true to life gargoyle really i wouldn’t either…but ya know it would be kinda cool…i believe in the supernatural…and how could any one that would believe in a god that could turn water into wine not beileve in some thing eles supernatural…i mean really now…in short you don’t have to be a science teacher or have a degree to know thats not the same thing…sorry…you could’ve had me if i were slow…lol..but thats just not the reality of it all now is…

  12. Anonymous says:

    It’s a gray wolf. Here’s a link to a picture of the skull. (Click name) (NOT PORN/A TRICK)

  13. Ted says:

    If you google (animal type) + “skull” in an image search, it becomes apparent this cannot be a sheep, goat, pig, cat, bear, elk, deer, horse or any other indigenous animal except for a dog. The configuration of the skull, jaw and teeth makes this OBVIOUSLY a dog. The only challenge is matching the shape of the snout to a particular breed’s skull and Viola! You have your beast.

    The new one that washed up? No way to have a clue until a DNA and/or skull match are done… but everything looks funky when it washes onshore after dying and sopping up seawater, aside from being nibbled by fish or whatever.

  14. cooly1245 says:

    look like a rat

  15. Jyn Meyer says:

    Take a look at that skull. Know what that is? It’s an otter skull!

    The thing looks large for an otter- but bloated things get bigger, and they become colorful…they lose their hair in chunks, and parts of them decompose off.

    I still think the MM can definitely be an otter.
    I have some videos on my theory on my youtube channel above. Thanks for sharing!!

  16. Klebster says:

    It looks like a polar bear killed by all our “global warming” HAHAHA

  17. BKC says:

    It is a dog skull shoved into a seal carcass.

  18. D Reynolds says:

    Wonder if it is that prize-winning dog that ran away from the airport crate several years ago and was never found.

  19. liknmylife says:

    ———These are bloated, and decomposing dog carcasses.————
    And you’re not gonna get bird flu, pig flu, or lyme disease from them.

  20. ;; says:

    Don’t come to Korea…..It’s terrible….

  21. Mike says:

    Ha wow you said the first one was stolen and than turned to “goo.” So your gonna lock this one up in a cooler so no real scientist can examine it again? Ha I bet this one will turn into “goo ice.” Get a real hobby try fishing, instead of making creatures with different animals parts you freak!

  22. K Ward says:

    It does look very much like a sheep, and anything floating in the water would bloat and look very different than normal. But what really doesn’t make sense about this to me, is that the head is a cleaned skull, and yet the torso is still covered with flesh or meat of some kind. If it had been dead long enough for the head to be a skull, the rest of the bones would also be skeletal remains. OR if some scavenger animal(s) had cleaned the meat off the skull, why did they leave the rest of the body untouched? – Doesn’t add up!

  23. tanny says:

    there is no montauk monster. its a dog. both of them. the first one was a Boxer the second one is a bulldog

  24. Radu says:

    Good one, the skull obviously does not go with the body. I dont think the body is a seal because the front legs are to long but could be about anything. The head is from a canine in a completely different state of decomposition. They could of been found in the same area and put together as a conversation peice. A good photographer would of taken some pics of the feet as they would give a good indication of what the body belongs to. Kind of looks like a small bear.

  25. Radu says:

    One more thing. The pictures above and the video from “the night of discovery” don’t add up. In the video there was no bottom jaw or teeth yet in the pictures they are all there. Where did you get them from?

  26. Ampprod says:


  27. M Russell says:

    Can’t help but notice the similarity in appearance the the Chupacabra (sp) found lurking alive and well in Texas!

  28. Fabi says:

    This is an animal mutilated beyond proper recognition. I think we ought to focus more on who or what did this to this animal.

    The mere fact of being in the water won’t scalp an animal nor have it’s head decompose faster than it’s body. Both this “monster” and previous one seem to have been mutilated.

    I think we’re looking at Animal Abuse at it’s worst….

  29. Fabi says:

    and if not that then surely it’s a prank or a sick joke in which probably animals (head doesn’t seem to belong to the body) have suffered….
    unless it’s made out of silicones and stuff…..

  30. Somebody taste it and see if it tastes like chicken.

  31. Dia says:

    I’m sorry guys, but in fact for me this looks like a huge dog. See the google link to compare the skull 😉

  32. Dia says:

    … it’s definitely some kind of a shepherd dog I think. And please people, be serious, since when do seals have a dog’s tail?

  33. Dia says:

    a hungarian sheperd to be correct. Look on google

  34. Brian says:

    You are ALL incorrect. This is not a dog, seal, otter, deer or any combination of two. This is clearly a baby polar bear that washed up from the LOST island.

  35. Some other person says:

    To anyone that says this is a sheep, I’m sorry to let you down, but sheep do not have front teeth on the top, like this carcass does. Like most ruminants, they only have front teeth on the bottom. Look at a sheep skull (or a real sheep) if you don’t believe me.

    Bringing this point further, this carcass has obvious canine teeth, which means that it is carnivorous, or at the very least omnivorous. In layman’s terms… this thing is NOT a plant-eater.

    If you ask me, it most closely resembles a dog, bloated from death and the water. But I’m not placing any bets because this is only three small pictures, all taken at a similar angle, and frankly I can’t see it all well enough to say anything definite. I’d like a better picture of the back end. I can’t even see if it has a tail, or if that’s just some more sea debris surrounding it.

    How mysteriously inconvenient!

  36. Gillianne says:

    Looks like a goat to me.

  37. joel says:

    I saw one of these “things” washed up along the Delaware River in PA, while I was mountain biking with 3 others on 5/10/09. We thought nothing of it, wondering if it was a pig, skinned racoon, or turtle without its shell. It smelled so bad that we had to leave. One of us almost lost our lunch. It was belly up and dry. The skin was very tuff and rigid, similar to a deflated basketball. I know this because i poked it with a stick.
    It’s funny how 4 days later poeple are claiming it is a monster. I’m sorry but we didn’t come up with a clever name for ours, nor did we bring it home in a trashbag and put it on ice.
    I will gladly tell you where it is. Mybe it is still there. I personally have no interest in it.

  38. Steven Alamond says:

    Although it seems reasonable, I don’t think its a dog… at least not the type of dog anyone has listed yet. My reasoning behind this is because of the snout, and the arch that gaps the forehead to the nose.

    In all the pictures of skulls (save one, that looks to be the skull of a puppy) there is a very prominent dip, while the skull itself is narrower, and the snout longer.

    If you look at the ‘monster’s’ skull, the snout is wider, and runs into the forehead in a straight line, without dipping. I know there are breeds of dogs with this characteristic also, but they also sport long snouts, which the creature does not have.

    The tooth patterns are similar to what one would expect a dog would have, (at least as far as they are visible… I can’t tell if the rear teeth are molars) but it is obvious the animal is carnivorous.

    That excludes sheep, which was my first guess (probably because of the bloated body shape)

  39. Mike says:

    That is not a racoon. R u dumb!

  40. cegee says:

    Ok..does anyone see that lump of skinfat located on the right side of the neck in image #1?? Look closely I see a resemblance of a nose and mouth. It appears if that skin was stretched over to the skull it would cover and make the face of the so called creature…I see it..anyone else????

  41. James says:

    If you look at how the incisors, canines and premolars are positioned then its clear that this is a canine of some type. I had originally thought this might be a pit bull (internet search of “dog skull” brings up several examples). But as an earlier anonymous entry suggests it looks very much like a wolf skull. As Steven Alamond pointed out this specimen has a snout that runs right up to the forehead with little or no dip. A grey wolf’s snout has this very same charactoristic. Check out the link below and compare the arrangement of a wolf’s teeth with the “monster’s”.


  42. etan says:

    “looks like chicken smells like dead dog, must be time to shower…”

    -old chinese pobverb-

  43. kristine says:

    it looks like a sheep!

  44. HasItBeen4YearsYet? says:


  45. Alleigh says:

    That is like really really fat for a skull that small. The skull and teeth also have a discolored look to them. I don’t think it’s a hoax or a sheep. I just don’t think that it washed up in one piece.

  46. Alleigh says:

    It also kinda looks like a canine skull. Like a gray wolf. The body looks like a dead pic that bloated. and like a sheep wool or something. I’d suspect Plum Island. But maybe this one was released a while ago then live some where else and plunged to it’s ultamete doom.

  47. Alleigh says:

    srry. typo dead pig that bloated.

  48. Roscoe says:

    Look at a young polar bears carcass……it has all the earmarks of a young polar bear.the ice is getting to be a problem,and there are reports of polarbears being stuck on icefloes until they either starve to death…or they drown trying to make it to shore ……look at the skull specifically ahead of the eye socket and the layout of the teeth and jaw structure…too close to be mere luck.the mottled “fur” also looks the same as if you have a wetpolar bear hide.,,,,grew up in the arctic,not so strange a sight if you have been there and seen results of a hunt.

  49. Helen says:

    May be totally out in left field here, but looking at the first picture/monster, the name Chupacabra (spelling) of Texas/ Mexico legend comes to mind. There was a program on one of the networks, and one lady rancher also had a carcass to show….weird looking thing. The second, more recent one appears more like a water logged sheep than anything.

  50. Kevin says:

    I’d say it depends on size….. Either a sheep carcass or far more likely the remains of a rotting polar bear cub. The polar bear cub would make more sense.

  51. carol says:

    Obviously it is NOT a sheep or a cow, to anyone who knows animal physiology. Sheep and cows don’t have upper incisors, for one thing.

    That looks like a dog skull if ever I saw one. Dog skulls vary widely in shapes – from that of a greyhound or a borzoi to that of a bulldog. But their dentition is the same.

  52. Oklahoma Girl says:

    the skull is definitely a raccoon.. freakin idiots! compare the teeth

  53. Beau says:

    I agree with the raccoon theory. In this picture: You can see unmistakable likenesses between Mr. Montauk (both encounters) and a raccoon.

    The main problem that people are experiencing with your picture is lack of scale, which sprang theories of Sheep, and Large breed dogs/grey wolves. For instance, during the movie captured at night, the stick used to move the beast showed a better scale of the situation and easily debunks theories of larger animals…

    Furthermore, the condition of the corpse is a direct result of putrefaction and water bloat (which can expand the corpse by roughly 2-3 times its normal size in most extreme cases), common with all once living creatures being submerged at least partially for some time. From the looks of it, it has just entered the “black” putrefaction stage (the body cavity ruptured and released abdominal gasses into the rest of the corpse), meaning it could be anywhere from 10-20 days dead. I expect that the limbs of Mr. Montauk were dangling in the water and bobbing more so than the bulk of its body, and became a luring meal for whatever passing carnivorous fish or animal happened to pass presumably explaining the uneven rate of decay on the head and appendages.

    I suspect that although the whole thing being “kept on ice,” the level of infestation by insect larvae and decomposition is pretty absolute, and will not keep its figure for more than a week or two. Which means unfortunately, we will never fully know exactly what this creature is… beyond the theoretical plane that is.

    Lastly, to fend off nay-sayers, this is not an official dissertation; this is a theory. A theory that many people have already mentioned for that matter. I do, however, have 3 years of medical school, and a degree in forensic pathology to back me up (you’ll have to take my word on that one 😉 I suppose I am more of an “if I can see it, its real” type of person in any case. For now, this cryptid remains as its namesake suggests… a mystery.

  54. Bi-Polar says:

    Folks, I have no degree, no experience in the paranormal (other than my ex-wife) and have never been trained in forensics.

    I have however seen decomposing bear cubs, and I am convinced this is a decomposing bear cub. I have no scalable reference as to the teeth size in the conspiracy theory, and it is truly a conspiracy to me, when the carcass of a dead animal is placed on the sale block.
    To request money for this “beastie”, is horrific in and of itself. take the damn thing to a taxidermist, get its nasty ass out of ice and have it mounted as a conversation piece.

    Get over the “beastie” “monster” and “devil” terminolgy and call it what it is. “dead animal” “carcass” and “smelly” would work, but quit with the hype and conspiracy, paranormal, beastie crap. As for the profiteering off this…..jeeeesh! get a job…. who is paying for a bloated ass nasty carcass and admit it?

    Polar or brown bear cub, very young and very dead. thats it……

  55. Jenii84 says:

    Personally I think it looks to be like a bear. But someone who know’s about animals should study it and not waste everyone’s time guessing.

  56. retrieverman says:

    I did some comparisons of the skull. I think it’s a raccoon. The premolars are exactly the same, although it appears to have lost its first premolar. It’s a fat one that has been eating well through the winter, and it has been water-logged and rotting for a long time. Because it is so well fed, it probably has eaten things that have caused its small first premolar to rot and fall out. And older wild animals often lose their teeth anyway.

    It’s an older animal from the raccoon that was the original Montauk Monster. It’s also in a much more advanced state of decomposition.

    I also thought it could be a bear until I noticed that this animal’s photo really closely. If you can get a higher resolution of that first photo, it has a tail– a long tail.

    That tail tells us this isn’t a seal.

    A 3 foot long raccoon with those proportions is not unheard of, especially in areas with lots of people. A raccoon living where there are lots of people will not have to hunt for its food, and it can get quite portly. In fact, the largest raccoon on record was 61 pounds– about the size of a typical female golden retriever.

  57. Ed says:

    I know what it is…..a sea turtle that lost the shell.

  58. smiley :) says:

    ok. now for the people who think it’s a freaking sea turtle, your wrong. number 1, turtle’s spines are in their shell. if you took a turtle out of its shell, it would die. you would have to rip it out. also, these pictures are deffinetly somewhat real. im guessing that the head was replaced, though. and just wait until it decays, then try to identify it by it’s bones.

    the first montauk monster or the second one had to be a fake. these pics don’t look like the one that started it all. so there. that is wat i think.
    (the head is a dogs. poor puppy. 🙁 )

  59. smiley :) says:

    also, the first pictures i am convinced that it is a raccoon. 😉

  60. puddle says:

    its either a sea-lion, seal…or other carnivorous water dwelling mammal. its skull tells all.

  61. Knowitall says:

    first of all, this is not a sea mammal such as a seal or sea lion…they have flipper structures which are at the terminal end of the animal, no tail as shown in these pics. *note* the tail itself in the photos, short thick and maybe 4-6 inches in length(guestimate of length due to angle of pics) it has 4 separate legs, you cant see the feet portions with any clarity. this isnt a bear nor a dog, nor a pig. its not a wombat, tasmanian devil or an alien hell beast…this is an apparent composite critter, the body of a sheep, hence the wattled neck(which certain types of sheep have) to which a raccoon skull has been attached, go to any anatomical sites for any of the aforementioned *creechtures* and compare the teeth arrangement and slope of skull..skull is spot on with a young raccoon. so you have a waterlogged sheep which washes up on shore and, Ah you say…how said sheep got into the ocean, glad you asked. sheep are a routinely transoceanic transport, a variety of countrys export them to other countries around the globe…said seafaring sheep herders do also have sheep die during these voyages…what to do with a sheep carcass if your a lonely seafaring shepherd? Um…NOPE…dont even go there..ya toss em over the side. and im sure its possible that out of the millions of sheep transported from places like new zealand, australia, etc to destinations all over the globe each year, its quite possible 1 or 2 might escape predation and float up on a beach somewhere isnt it? then its discovery by some smart alec who wants to hoodoo john and jane q public, adds a nicely cleaned raccoon skull to it,and drape it with some handy seaweed, take some pics of it (and for gods sake, not too many or too close or from all angles)presto changeo, VOILA’!! then ya got what we have here…a whole lotta crap guaranteed to stir up the local population of conspiracy theorists…yada yada and yada my work here is done, thanks kind peeps..have a nice day 🙂

  62. Who IS sssssssshhhhhh says:

    That looks like my girlfriend.

  63. caribbean lady says:

    it looks like some one doing voodoo or something on animal body pats

  64. caribbean lady says:

    it looks like some one doing voodoo or something on animal body parts

  65. matilda says:

    It looks like a mix between a bear, racon and a sloth. I don’t know if I believe it’s real, but it seems real enough. 🙂

  66. This is a racoon! just search for images of carnivoran mammlas and those of racoon skulls, pay attention to the teeth and skull shape. It´s just obvious!

    I can´t believe you people in the U.S. are so easy to fool!

  67. TJ WAYNE says:

    A sheep or goat? I don’t think so. Neither has such canine teeth. They are grass earters with flat, dull, square teeth. This animal is a meat eater. All meat consuming animals with the execption of humans, have long sharp teeth in sets, like this animal. Look at the close-up shot of the head and teeth. I give you all credit, without the jaw and teeth, is does look like it could be either of the two. The skull is a little short from snout to ear as well. It has a very unusual look and it is not due to decomposition. Where is this carcass? Or has it disappeared as well.

    You know, the more I look at it, I think it’s a hoax. The skull of another animal inserted in the headless carcass of a goat. The head is the only part that is pure skeleton, while the rest is fully fleshed. Usually the soft underbelly is the first part to be hit by scavengers. With the eyes the exception, the head is not first choice for a good meal. There is a big glob of flesh in the neck area which could easily cover the trick. Also the head seems way to be out of proportion with the rest of the body even with the bloating of decomposition. There is no way to see from a picture if in fact the skull and spine are one piece or two.

  68. Richard Smith says:

    It’s a Sea Lion Dogs have to holes in the bottom jaw absent in the photo. But the sea lion skull matches perfectly (also the side incisors are far too sharp for a dog)

  69. John says:

    It is a seal.

  70. mikey wright says:

    it bit me and i kicked it and it died

  71. doug says:

    it looks like it s been drinking kool- aid

  72. mike says:

    the real picture of the montauk monster was the body carcass of a prehistoric animal that’s body was able to withstand the pressure of the water for all of these years

  73. jackie says:

    it looks like the head of a bush dog shoved into the body of another animals body.

  74. Emily says:

    your all very clever…
    1:that isnt a sea lion, they have flippers.
    2:there isnt any sheep wool so i dont know what your talking about
    3:sheep dont have fangs.
    4:and its ass is way too big for a dog and a racoon.
    There is an animal testing facility along the coast, and where did you think all their dead patients go? the ocean. and the animal is bloated, being dead does that to you. and i have reason to believe that this animal has been sliced and burned and had done what you cant even imagine (thats animal testing for you.) So get a DNA test, get some professionals and stop making stupid guesses…sheeps and goats? with fangs? yeah i’ll believe that when i see it.

  75. Mizz Jamezsterrr says:

    wellll…. i think that it is just a big fat FAKE….
    but thats just me…

  76. aira says:

    wtf r u retarded! raccoons arent that big!!! that thing is huge!

  77. shayne says:

    it’s a headless pig carcass and a bear skull.

  78. Emmet says:

    I think the second one was a pig, and the third one is a sheep. They’re all very bloated ofcourse and most of the skin/ fur has fallen off, but I’m pretty certain.

  79. juli says:

    @ emily:
    i think it’s from monsanto

  80. 666 calls you says:

    THAT ONE IS OBVIOUSLY A SHEEP! it even has still most of its wool!
    they probably replaced its skull with something else so everyone would wonder…

  81. Terance says:

    im pretty sure its a sheep. what i keep wondering whenever these pictures show up you never see the feet or hands. you can usually tell if its a barnyard animal or whatever by its feet. i bet if you look closely it has hooves

  82. richie says:

    well the pictue is a sea lion a male one it had indivudal flippers in front and back they can walk on color is faided due to the sun “of course”

  83. scar says:

    this is crazy what is this

  84. Chinese says:

    It’s just a big mess of meat and bones.
    Everything alive in this world dies, like this kind of psychedelic
    animal, so i dont care if is a dog, a seal or a dinossaur.
    It’s just dead meat for vultures!
    But it would be amazing to see an animal like this alive.

  85. michael says:

    in my opinion it looks a lot like a three-toed sloth.

  86. mike says:

    I think that our goverment is crossing alien animals with our own

  87. Elmo0 says:

    I have no clue what this thing is but it look very gross and eww but it does sort of look like a sheep because in the 1st picture it looks like the skin just came off the skull

  88. Michael says:

    I think its a Raccoon

  89. scott says:

    its a water dog

  90. liiii says:

    it is a raccoon

  91. Geovana says:

    Well,regardless of what your opinion is of what this cruteare is,it is a mystery. I personally think there is some experimental testing going on somewhere(and not just because I have been watching FRINGE lately;) But,it possibly could be a turtle without a shell,but if this is the second one in less than a year,what are happening to turtles out there that they are losing their shells? Raccoon?Dog? Pig? Okay,well,why are they showing up in this condition and from where?I just hope this one wont magically disappear like the first one ..
