A rare sea creature that looks horrifyingly like the monster in the popular Netflix TV Show, Stranger Things, was spotted on a beach in North Wales, The Mirror reported. 

The photo of the odd-looking creature was shared on Facebook and users began comparing the animal to the Shadow Monster in Stranger Things.

Shel Longmore, a frequent beachgoer who discovered the creature, described the animal as a “starfish playing the maracas”.

Longmore added, “It was a strange-looking creature but also very beautiful.”

The sea creature was identified as a Gooseneck barnacles, a rare and expensive delicacy that can be sold for up to 300 pounds a kilo.
