- Kelly Garrahan's friend found the carcass on her five-acre lot in Florida
- The creature is about two to three feet long, has finger-like limbs, a tooth-filled snout, and a thick, long tail
- Social media users suggested it could be a coyote, a dog, a lizard, or an alligator

A Florida woman discovered a mysterious carcass on her property that has caused social media excitement to solve the mystery of what a dead animal it is.
Click Garus, from Titusville, Florida, told Click Orlando that her boyfriend was on her five-acre property and was looking for the dog when he found the body of the unidentified creature in the yard.
Unable to find out what kind of animal it was, she turned to Facebook for help identifying the deflated, shriveled, tanned, gruesome, and gritty carcass.
Kelly Garrahan's friend found this horrible carcass on her five-hectare property and turned to social media and government agencies for help with identification
The suggestions ranged from a coyote and dog to an alligator, a Komodo dragon and an opossum
As can be seen in a series of Garrahan's photos, the animal has a thick and long tail, a tooth-filled snout, finger-like limbs and claws and an elongated torso. It measures approximately two to three meters long.
"It's body, it doesn't even look like I've ever seen it," Garrahan told Click Orlando.
"I just want to know what it was, I'm new to them and I thought I didn't know what kind of animal Titusville had," she added.
In a Facebook post she asked: "I found this in my garden … has anyone seen this thing before or knows what it could be?"
Social media users had a variety of suggestions as to what the carcass could have been
The creature measures between two and three feet and has finger-like attachments and claws
Other imaginative explanations for what the creature might be are chupacabra, marsh monkey, "clearly a dinosaur" and "100% an alien".
Kelly said she had never seen an animal that resembled the carcass and was new to the area, so she wasn't sure what kind of animal was native to Titusville, Florida
The question triggered a series of answers, ranging from a dog to an alligator, a coyote, an otter, a Komodo dragon to a monitor lizard. Some other fantastic answers were Chupacabra, marsh monkey, "clearly a dinosaur" and "100% an alien".
Garrahan said she sent the photos to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission for an expert opinion. The organization replied that the creature was just a worldly possum.
Whatever the animal actually is, Garrahan said it smells so strong that she is now avoiding the area and wants someone to come and remove it.
It is unclear how long the animal had rotted on their property. Garrahan said on Facebook that she doesn't travel to the background every day because her property is so big.
