While on a “romantic walk” with his partner at Hollingworth Lake in Rochdale, England, a man came across this insane lake monster that washed up on the shore. The 32-year-old Jonny Beckett said he was stunned when he found the creature on the beach.

While talking about his discovery, Beckett said:

I thought it was a crocodile or some ancient creature and I immediately took a photo of it. It looked huge—about 5ft in length. A group of kids saw me taking the photo and looked horrified.

We’re not sure what this monster really is, but it’s more than likely a massive dead pike since they have been known to grow more than 4ft and are common at Hollingworth Lake. However, we won’t hold it against you if you want to believe it’s an ancient creature.

This creature is creepy enough that we’re sure people won’t be going in this lake again any time soon.
