While surveying the damage from Hurricane Harvey, a Texas woman stumbled  upon the remains of a nightmarish sea creature that had washed ashore  during the storm.

Preeti Desai spotted the oddity on a beach in Texas City last week and  managed to snap some pictures of the animal which boasts a  monstrous-looking mouth.

A social media manager for the National Audubon Society, Desai posted  the pictures to Twitter in the hopes that someone could identify the  weird beast.
