The first Bermuda blob was found by fisherman and treasure hunter Teddy Tucker in 1988 in Mangrove Bay. Tucker described the blob as 2 and a half to 3 feet thick, as well as being very white and fibrous, rather like a disfigured star. The second Bermuda blob was found 1997. Samples of the first specimen were analyzed in 1995 and it was suggested they were from a poikilothermic sea creature either a large bony fish or shark or ray. A reanalysis stated they were from some kind of whale. The second blob was also later determined to be part of a whale.
