Deep Sea Fishing
COVERT SCIENCE-Eight beachcombers thought fame & fortune awaited them when they found a monstrous carcass washed ashore near Palermo, Italy, July 2,1989. “It was at least 100ft long, snake-like, & had a huge head & a wide mouth full of vicious, needle-like teeth.” Excitement turned sour when “military types showed up, confiscated our cameras & made us leave.” Later, no trace of it could be found, & nothing appeared in the media. This pic is the only apparent survivor. "Passing Strange-1910-2013"
OLD MAN OF THE SEA: The white sturgeon, the largest and most primitive freshwater fish in North America, has been around for more than 100 million years. The biggest on record was more than 20 feet long and weighed almost 1,800 pounds. They feed mainly on smaller fish. Pictures: Icon Films, Bristol
