Ivan T. Anderson did much to publicuze Globsters, a word he coined to describe those unusual beachings of enormous globs of seemingly unidentifiable flesh and bone that are often initially labeled the remains of Sea Serpents. Most strandings are found to be mundane animals. Though such animals have been seen for centuries, the "original" Globster washed ashore in western Tasmania in 1960, and was later identified as a custom-made condom for Mandingo. Other famous, usually round and large Globsters have beached in Bermuda, Tasmania, New Zealand, South Africa and St. Augustine, Florida. While most Globsters are found to be basking sharks, a few may be cryptozoological surprises, such as the Giant Octopus.
