ALIENS have arrived on the west coast of Scotland.
A picture of a washed-up jellyfish has set online imaginations alight – with amused Scots suggesting it resembles a range of out-of-this-world creatures.
The dead animal, snapped by photographer Jamie Glenday, was found on the shores of Dunure in Ayr, South Ayrshire.
The rubbery creature appears to have two bulging eyes and a tentacled snout, with a transparent body.
The “monster” bears an uncanny likeness to several well-known fictional beasts, including Predator, Davy Jones from ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ and the Ood from ‘Doctor Who’.
Some have even suggested it looks like Cthulhu – a cosmic entity which is a mix of an octopus, a man and a dragon with long wings and a rubbery-looking body.
Jamie, 51, from Ayrshire, uploaded the picture online with the caption: “Came across this alien on the Dunure coast.”
Some people joked it reminded them of family members.
Paul Wynn wrote: “My mother in law – you found her.”
Linda Herrington added: “Looks remarkably like my husband.”
