/1.A peculiar 3-foot-long marine creature, reminiscent of a dinosaur and adorned with rigid armor plating, was discovered stranded on a beach.

A buck-toothed 3ft sea beast that looks not too far off a legless crocodile has been found beached in Virginia, US, by a man who has developed a habit of spotting them

A hulking armoured sea creature has been discovered washed up on a deserted beach.

As Allen Sklar drove across Assateague Island, in Virginia, US, he spotted a beast lying motionless on the sand and immediately pulled up to take a closer look.

It soon became apparent that this was no ordinary fish out of water but a bizarre-looking armoured beast that dates back to the time of the dinosaurs.

Measuring around three feet long, the animal boasted quite the overbite with its top gnashers on show beneath a stretched out pointed nose, Newsweek reports.

Fortunately for Allen, it wasn’t the first time he’s come across such a freakish creature so managed to calmly take a snap of what he recognised as an Atlantic sturgeon.

Allen said he found the fish on the beach at Assateague Island, a 37-mile-long strip of land, and he quickly snapped a few pictures of the creature.

Allen told Newsweek: “I drive the 12 miles of beach about 100 days a year and so see a lot of stuff others don’t. This was the second sturgeon I have seen in 27 years of driving on the island.”
