It may have been 10,000 years in the making. The creature was exposed on the shore after the winter storms washed away the sand.
An [as of yet] unidentified creature was found on the shores of Lake Michigan between South Haven and St. Joseph Michigan.
Living near Lake Michigan in Southwest Michigan, we’re able to walk for miles along the unobstructed shoreline. It’s easy to lose ourselves against the backdrop of the amazing scenery, to forget where we are, and how far we’ve journeyed.
This day was not unlike any other day at the beach… a gentle breeze… rolling waves… and the warming sun breaking through the scattered clouds. In the distance, we could start to make out the shape of a massive object emerging from the sand. As we approached, it became evident it was something more mysterious… a creature from the distant past perhaps?
Upon closer inspection, we could see the eyes, teeth, jaw line, and finger-like appendages. Did it finally reveal itself for us to discover after years of being well-preserved beneath the glacial ice and buried deep below the sand? We may never know as surely another storm will cover it up again soon. Fortunately, we were able to take these photos as evidence of our extraordinary find 🙂
