An Extent Dicynodont?!


Nope. Almost certainly not.

Too bad. Fun to start a new internet rumor though!

It's a raccoon according to Darren Naish -- http://scienceblogs.com/tetrapodzoology/2008/08/the_montauk_monster.php

Not too obvious from this vantage point! Seen from other side, it is an obvious mammal carcass. The "beak" is exposed skull etc.

Yeah, I figured it was a regular mammal that got mutilated/decayed in some fashion. The dicynodont comment was the idea that it did look mammalian, but with the the beak. :)
