A mystery creature reportedly beaten to death by a group of teenagers in Panama is the subject of much speculation on the web.
The beast's hairless, rubbery body and revolting features have drawn comparisons with the Montauk Monster, the still-unidentified animal photographed on a New York beach last year.
According to reports in Panama, the teenagers spotted the creature crawling out of a cave while playing in the town of Cerro Azul north of Panama City.
Fearing for the safety as it moved towards them, the youths claim they attacked the beast with sticks before throwing its lifeless body into a pool of water.
They returned later to take pictures of the corpse which were then posted on the website of the Central American country's Telemetro television station.
The images have since bounced around various cryptozoology blogs, with several explanations suggested for what it might have been.
A hooked claw visible in one of the photos has been cited as evidence for the popular theory that the creature was a sloth that somehow lost its hair. stunt, but its remains have never been found.

How many postings to you get a Helen Thomas photo?
Wow, did you hear that they put a man on the moon, too? (old news sarcasm)
Seriously, the kids lied. They found it long dead, and bloated, which is why it looks so alien. Its a shaved, dead, and bloated sloth.
Dead sloth that has been in the water for a while.
Looks like it could be a space alien.
And the colors of the sea blind your eyes with trembling mermaids,
And you touch the distant beaches with tales of brave Ulysses:
How his naked ears were tortured by the sirens sweetly singing,
For the sparkling waves are calling you to kiss their white laced lips.
with apologies to CREAM....and anyone who looks upon this pic.
I believe it to be the offspringof Obamacare.
Forget Global Warming. We need to spend $2 Trillion to find out what this is. It is more of a threat than global warming.
I will head the investigation. Send the first $100,000,000 check to ........
They killed ET!
Is or is not that picture of Waxman photoshopped? I am sincerely unsure.
Helen Thomas as Medusa. Nice! But she would throw the world’s greatest parties! Everybody gets stoned!
