This mysterious large object washed up last week on Seabrook Island in Charleston County, South Carolina. Apparently it has the consistency of foam and does not seem to contain any metal. The Lowcountry Marine Mammal Network posted this photo of it to their Facebook page generating many fantastic theories and a few boring ones. From UPI: Some have suggested the object resembles the shape of a damaged marine buoy like those used by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
