Forget romantic strolls on the beach, discovering the body of a giant fish sounds like a lot more fun.
Images of an enormous fish that washed up on the beach in Queensland, Australia have gone viral.
According to ABC News the swimmy boi was found by couple John and Riley Lindholm while taking a walk on Moore Park Beach on Tuesday. John Lindholm told ABC he estimated the fish to be 1.5m to 1.7m long, and probably weighed from 150kg to 170kg.
Identifying the fish has been tricky, reports ABC, because of the level of deterioration. John Lindholm said he posted the images on a forum and that the had been some speculation that it was cod or grouper, but nothing definitive.
Of course, there are other possible explanations…
