The Texas coast was littered with dead fish and sea animals in the days following Hurricane Harvey’s destructive path across the state.

One particular discovery could have came straight out of a sci-fi film, according to a photo in a Wednesday Daily Mail tweet.

Preeti Desai of the National Audubon Society first discovered the animal and posted the photo on Twitter to see if anyone knew what it was. Experts responded to Desai, hypothesizing that the animal was some sort of eel, possibly a fangtooth snake-eel, according to the Daily Mail.

Harvey was the longest that a Texas hurricane remained a named storm after landfall, according to Colorado State University scientist Dr. Phil Klotzbach. The storm killed at least 70 people.

The storm brought in 51 inches of rain at its most extreme point, a record for the contiguous United States.
