What is a Globster?

Globsters are the name given to a special type of wash-up. The are composed of organic matter and often have what appear to be hairs covering the surface. They are accompanied by a strong smell and often show signs of shark feeding in the form of bite-marks. Most globsters turn out to be decomposing flesh of whales, basking sharks, or other large marine animals. For years they have been the source of sea monster tales.
