Canvey Island Monster by Rasec-Wizzlbang Canvey Island Monster by Rasec-Wizzlbang
The Canvey Island Monster is the name given to an unusual creature whose carcass washed up on the shores of Canvey Island, England, in November, 1953. A second, more intact, carcass was discovered in August, 1954.

The 1953 specimen was described as being 76cm (2.4ft) long with thick reddish brown skin, bulging eyes and gills. It was also described as having hind legs with five-toed horseshoe-shaped feet with concave arches - which appeared to be suited for bipedal locomotion - but no forelimbs. Its remains were cremated after a cursory inspection by zoologists who said that it posed no danger to the public. The 1954 specimen was described as being similar to the first but much larger, being 120cm (3.9 ft) long and weighing approximately 11.3kg (25lb). It was sufficiently fresh for its eyes, nostrils and teeth to be studied though no official explanation was given at the time as to what it was or what happened to the carcass

You ever seen this picture of it, then it kinda looks like your drawing (unless decaying anglerfish looks like that).

This looks to be a dead cat with no fur

That's what I was thinking too; personally I find almost all cryptozoology a load of bull-frickin' horse shit.

I saw a photograph of it somewhere. Almost certainly an anglerfish, I'm thinking.

I've seen the photo you're talking about. It's a pretty far cry from the description they gave of it.

Indeed. It makes that old interpretation I drew of it (which is probably still on Wikipedia) look quite stupid.

I didn't create this one, It's just my rendition of a cryptid that was allegedly washed up on Canvey Island.
