Local fishermen capture and butcher a Basilosaurus on Friday in Bonny Island, Rivers State

Do dinosaurs still roam the earth? Can we still find supposed extinct creatures? All these are the questions that come to mind with the residents of Bonny Island, Rivers state, catching a Basilosaurus.

Painfully, however, the locals know nothing of keeping an endangered specie.

Barely two weeks after residents in Finima, Bonny Island and environs, Rivers state, were inundated with a swarm of dead croakers washed ashore from the banks of the Atlantic Ocean, the community has again welcomed a Basilosaurus on Friday.

As it were with the dead croakers which found their way into the pots of soups of fishermen and unsuspecting consumers who bought from markets in defiance of Rivers Government warning against it consumption, some residents on discovering the strange sea animal on Friday have been chopping off its tissues for consumption.

In early video footage on the fate of the stranded sea animal, residents feasting on it identified it as a “wild whale”, but the strange mammal identified as a Basilosaurus was seen wiggling parts of its body like a larger than life octopus.
