WTH Is This Monster Found In Vietnam?

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Recently, Karapaia, a Japanese news site focusing on the strange and weird, posted a video of what seems to be a giant monster being dug out of the ground in Vietnam. In the video, the long, fat, gray slug-like creature is surrounded by a crowd of curious onlookers watching with rapt attention as the horrifying behemoth is hoisted onto a trailer.

But what in the world could it be? A giant worm? An alien aggressor? A genetic experiment gone horribly wrong?

      No….it’s a whale you complete idiot.

    • Quemielle DuChesne

      How stupid are the people who work here?! Look at the dorsal fin and see the blowhole! It is a whale, you idiots!

      • memyself

        pectoral fin

    • thetruth

      awww, you scared sweet loves. thats no whale.

    • Jojo

      That is no worm… it is a GROUND WHALE! They migrate from the cold waters of the southern Pacific to rest here for the winter. They bury themselves in the sand and wait for summer to arrive. Dang, I thought the readers on this site were more informed! LMAO!

      • RobiMac

        I’m approaching 50, and of all the animal shows that I have seen in my lifetime, there was never a mention of a ‘ground whale.’

        • Fish

          We have land sharks in Florida. Beware the beaches!

        • RichardPaul

          Well, RobiMac, it’s been almost a year since you made your post. I’m just posting to see if you’re still alive or have succumbed to terminal stupidity.

      • cooltxbreeze

        CRACKING UP @ “ground whale”! Jojo, please tell us more about these beautiful, shy, elusive denizens of the deep.

      • TheDame

        A ground whale? Oh lord. I haven’t laughed out loud like that in forever. BEST ANSWER.

        It’s also great to reference a DreamWorks film like it’s reality.

      • StraightDopes


        and i thought it was just a hypertrophic trouser trout.

      sperm whale

      Ignorance is acceptable

      But I do believe your beloved monster is no more than a baleen whale.

    • truthzilla

      I for one would like to welcome our giant slug overlords…Poor whale…Looks like a lot of meat for hungry people…

    • TombRaider

      While I’m not an expert it’s pretty easy to see it’s a whale and I believe a sperm whale to be specific……monster…. :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:

      • Studebacher Hoch

        Sperm whales have teeth – this is a baleen whale.

    • SSpyderX68

      I’m sorry to inform you all but you are all wrong about this creature’s identity. This is clearly a photograph and video of the extremely rare and dangerous Cambodian Dikfer. That or a common Asian Henwei.
      While photos of the common henwei exist they are rare. It is the Cambodian Dikfer that has never been photographed before. Kudos to the people who got this one! They could’ve died a most gruesome death if they had crossed a Dikfer. :shock:

      • TombRaider


        As they loaded it on the trailer its head, eye, large mouth, and blowhole appear to indicate whale…

        I also Googled both the species and found no reference or photos of either the Cambodian Dikfer or the Asian Henwei……

      • REDD

        LMAO—-I have to ask Two Questions!!! FIRST, What do all yall wanna be a Dik-Fer?? And Second, Exactly How much does a Hen-Weigh????
        Poor TombRaider—Yall had him trying to Google a Dikfer and a Henwei!!! LOL……..

      • CrowPie

        Mischief! Always up to some kind of meanass mischief….. Prob’ly take friends snipe huntin too. Now stop causing trouble and go check to blinker fluid in my car!

      • local scapegoat

        Just for the sake that nobody else got it…
        Hey SSPYDERx68? What’s a Cambodian Dikfer?

        …wow people tried to look that up? reallly? Too funny Spydy! :lol:

      • local scapegoat

        Just for the sake that nobody else got it…
        Hey SSPYDERx68? What’s a Cambodian Dikfer?

        …wow people tried to look that up? reallly? Too funny Spydy! :lol:

        BTW the Henwei’s, research shows that sized depends on actual breed. They can get very large from what I understand.

      • doggy do

        A relative of the fearsome and seldome seen chupacabara, It seems. I looked it up elsewhere on this highly knowledgeable site

      • Studebacher Hoch

        Hmmm what’s an Asian Henwei? :wink:

        Oh, I dunno about 0.9 kilograms. :mrgreen:

      • AnyOne

        I see this is an old post…but I couldn’t resist commenting.

        I would bet, if truth be told…ALL you googled Asian Henwei and Cambodian Dikfer :!:

        Also Crowpie….I found some Hello Kitty Blinker fluid :lol: :lol:

      Dont you remember the movie tremors?

      Give it a couple of days and it’s gonna stink!

      • Omerta

        Not in Vietnam. That thing is nothing but a pile of bones and leftovers.

    • TombRaider

      Can anyone say Sushi!! :grin:

    • W. Willow

      How else could a village feed itself a whale but to bury it in a pit BBQ? Yum. :shock:

    • CSweeney

      This is terrible. why did they dig this whale up exactly?

    • Argentus Maximus

      most likely a juvenile Blue Whale. Pectoral fins aren’t large enough to be a full size adult…even the body length wouldn’t be close to adult size. But you can obviously tell by the long curved shape of the mouth and how the bottom billows out that it’s a Blue Whale. Just look up some photos of a Blue Whale and you’ll see it right away.

    • Anonymous

      It looks like a Baline whale by its mouth

    • Mr. Dikfer

      This is totally a whale if you can’t see that then you better get your eyes tested cause your as blind as a bat.

    • archie5k

      That is Katsuyu the giant slug summoned by Lady Tsunade the 5th Hokage of Leaf Village :twisted:

    • SkaughtWrustle

      It’s a whale. You can see the blowhole in the first 5 seconds of the clip.
      People are morons.

    • Anonymous

      OMG!! It’s the Photoshop Monster….run for your lives!!!

    • JohnF

      Just google search baleen whale. It is definitely that. For the person that wondered why they dug this up, they didn’t dig it up. There is no hole in the ground visible after they lift the whale. Obviously this is just a beached whale they are removing from the beach.

      • Seeker

        JohnF you are correct indeed and for the rest that think they will eat that whale that they didn’t dig up, think again. In Cambodia it is considered good luck by the fisherman if they see a whale dead or alive. They will most likely have a land burial and ceremony for it.

        For all of the negative nellies out there.. you shouldn’t bash this guy for posting. The point of BIN is to get you thinking, not bashing or hating…


    • ???

      It’s dinner! What ever it is…. :twisted:

    • Anonymous

      Reminds me of a colony of ants swarming around a bigger dead bug.

      It’s a Baleen whale. Not a Sperm whale nor a big worm nor a strange alien creature.

      • really

        I now think you are correct.

        “Baleen whales have two blowholes, causing a V-shaped blow. These paired blowholes are longitudinal slits that converge anteriorly and widen posteriorly. They are surrounded by a fleshy ridge that keeps water away while the whale breathes. The septum that separates the blowholes has two plugs attached to it which make the blowholes water-tight while the whale dives”

        One can clearly see this blowhole arrangement in the video, clear as day.

    • sneezy

      The comments are better than the story….bwa..ha…ha

    • pigsdofly

      It’s rubber air filled HOAX to make you think it’s real. NOT BUYING THE BULL :)

    • ckei

      Guys, if you click on the link to the article, it clearly states that this is a dead whale. Dnt be mislead by the title, it’s just to catch your attention lol

    • Tim Watson

      That’s just a dead Blue Whale! Nice sensationalization of an everyday occurrence!


        you’re ½ correct ;)

        its not a Blue

    • Jacksdad

      OMG…….it’s a sperm whale………MONSTER……!!!!

      • Studebacher Hoch

        Not a Sperm Whale.
        Sperm whales are toothed whales.
        This is a Baleen whale

    • xox

      Are people stupid? Thats a whalr. Clearly!. U can tell when they lift it up by its mouth and sutch. Its probably just been dead a whikr

    • Mister Fred

      Wait…. It’s an intergalactic being from Niburu :roll:


        …that flew in off the tail of comet Ison ;)

    • Biologist

      It does look whale-like, but what about those tiny, TINY pectoral fins? It does also appear to have a very pointed nose. It’s shape is like a long tube… not really what I associate with a whale. Sure, it has a blow-hole like a whale or dolphin, but all that really means is that it breathes air. It does appear to have a baleen which obviously whales have, but does not exclude any anomalies. In the end, even if this IS a whale, it sure is a VERY ODD looking one. Perhaps the mother abandoned it because it had birth defects.

    • sten

      Its a whale of a story blown out of proportion by the mentally retarded.


        you’re ½ correct ;)

        :cool: I see what ya did there :wink:


          ignore the ½ correct part ;)

    • Twisted4shr

      Are you guys for real? Its OBVIOUS! Has nobody else seen the movie TREMORS?

    • An Observer

      From the article:

      The video, which was found on a Chinese site with little in the way of an explanation, is most likely a recording of a beached, deceased whale being loaded on a trailer for burial. It seems that in Vietnam, whales–dead or alive–are considered harbingers of good luck, and fishermen are always happy to see them in their waters. However, when one of them shows up dead, the fishermen will work together to pull the creatures to shore for entombment. The animals are absolutely not to be hunted or eaten.

      Here’s the picture that shows clearly it’s a whale:

      This is just another case of a BIN poster that is more interested in getting page views than spreading the truth. Another person out there giving the skeptics a reason to be skeptical.

    • Central Scrutinizer

      Not a blue whale, not a sperm whale, but rather a Minke whale.

      But thanks for playing. :cool:

    • Vessa

      I think it might be a Pannoniasaurus.

    • JohnF

      It’s a baleen whale people! Just google search it and compare it’s mouth. It’s not a monster, not a baline whale, not a blue whale, not a sperm whale, not a hoax, it’s a baleen whale!
