seems to me those guys had anaconda(or boa, or piton) for lunch, that's how a snake looks when it's butchered.

Nah, that's definitely a fish... oarfish I'm guessing from the name of the pic. The guys look military to me, so possibly they caught it from a navy ship, though it looks like they're on land at this point. With the barbed wire in the background could be on a military base. Again because of the url, "bajadestinations", my guess would be very southern California (San Diego/Camp Pendleton) or Baja somewhere.

Thumbs down

Didn't I specifically put on the first page that you are NOT to go look at the link to get the answer? That is cheating.

Yes, it is an oarfish.

Here is a much larger photo of it in color and an article to go with it:

OARFISH (regalecus glesne)
by:Mary Anne Simpson

Sometimes mistaken for a sea serpent the Oarfish has mystified skin divers, ichthyologists and quickened the heart rate of several swimmers. The fish measures between twenty and thirty feet long, and weighs upwards to four hundred pounds. Sightings of this rare fish are few and far between. The fish dwells at depths of seven hundred feet, and only comes to the surface when it is sick or injured. It appears like a pre-historic eel, measuring four feet in circumference, with large saucer like eyes and a raised, red elongated dorsal fin along the upper ridge of its spine.

According to Scripps Institution of Oceanography scientist, H.J. Walker, the fish is harmless, eating only small shrimp off the ocean floor. He tasted a cooked Oarfish and stated it tasted something like paper. Reports of a fifty- six foot serpent like fish was found on the shores of Scotland, it is believed to be an oarfish. Some have speculated that this is a link to the infamous Loch Ness Monster.*1

Navy Seals in training at San Diego, California found a twenty three foot oarfish in the bay off Coronado Island in 1996. The oarfish had washed up shore due to a probable collision with a boat propeller. In another incident, an under water cameraman on assignment in Nassau in 1997, photographed an oarfish in his own habitat. He described it as appearing silvery and reflective. Its dorsal fin ran the length of its back and undulated to propel it along. It had no caudal fin as the body tapered to a point where the tail would normally be, and its large eyes made me think that I was looking at a deep-sea creature

Something makes me think of of catacombs or ritual burial sites? Maybe plague victims or human sacrfices in Aztec/Mayan cities?

You said don't follow the link to look it up, I didn't. However, for some reason I don't get the pics in line (though they show up that way when I'm replying as I've just discovered) so the link url is right in front of my face and I have to click it to see the pic.

I guess I'll have to not play since I can't stop myself from seeing the info, and it's hard to click on a url and not look at it at the same time

This is another object of interest near where I live. Here is from an article:

Nacoochee Indian Mound

At the intersection of Hwy. 75 and Hwy. 17, the Nacoochee Indian Mound, was the center of the ancient Cherokee town of Gauxule, visited by DeSoto in 1540 in his search for gold. On this ceremonial mound, 190' long, 150' wide, and 20' high, stood the Town House where a sacred fire burned unceasingly. Ceremonial dances were performed in and around the Town House. Residents of the town lived on the flat land surrounding the mound. The findings of Heye Foundation archaeologists who explored the mound in 1915 indicate the advanced cultural development of the builders.

Cool

Oh well, guess no one could guess (I'm still wondering and I found the pic). It is apparently just towers someone built in Casa Mila, Barcelona, Spain. Casa Mila was so heaping full of strange pics that I wish I could post them all.

Here is a larger and clearer photo of the one above:

I'm betting some redwood forest from california. I think I saw some picture of a tunnel drilled through one of the trees so people could drive through it.
