Artist Revealed to be Creator of GA 'Creature Carcass'

The bizarre 'creature carcass' found on a beach in Georgia earlier this  year has been revealed to be the work of an artist known for creating  viral hoaxes. The strange 'remains' made headlines around the world back  in March when video of the oddity surfaced online.  While some speculated that the 'beast' could have been the region's  resident Nessie-like sea monster known as the Altamaha-ha, marine  biologists said that it was probably a normal creature that looked  exotic due to the ravages of decomposition and others argued that it was  an outright hoax orchestrated by local residents to increase tourism to  the area.

While that specific scenario is not exactly what occurred, it has now  been learned that, indeed, the 'creature' was a fake. In a profile by Vice, an artist out of New York City named 'Zardulu'  says that she was the one responsible for crafting the creepy carcass  out of a taxidermied shark and paper mache. The purpose of the piece,  she explained, was to "breathe some new life" into the legend of the  Altamaha-ha and "incorporate it into my larger narrative." The 'carcass'  was not the first time Zardulu has found success in fabricating scenes  that go viral as she is responsible for videos of a three-eyed catfish  and a raccoon riding an alligator which also spread like wildfire  online.
