TACLOBAN CITY - A huge sea creature washed ashore in Maasin City, Southern Leyte on Thursday.

The sea creature, which was as big as a jeepney, looked like a whale but its species could not be ascertained because it was already decomposing, said Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources Field Officer Julius Alpino.

Photos of the sea creature, taken by Nujnuj Capistrano, has since been viral on social media.
