What the hell is that?  Capt. John Greland fro the BPD began tweeting about the mysterious animal/mammal floating just below the surface near the Black Falcon Cruise Terminal on Tuesday morning.

According the Boston Globe, the Boston Police harbor unit received a call around 8am.  The Coast Guard was sent out to investigate.  So far, the fish has not been identified but could be anything from a whale to a shark or maybe even a mola mola.  Yikes!

We are praying it’s not the #SouthieWhale!   More to follow!

UPDATE: The New England Aquarium has identified the fish carcass as a basking shark.  The shark is about 24 feet long and 9 feet wide from fin to fin.  Yikes!  Luckily it only eats fish! Phew!
