TRUTH !!
The Skeleton coast, on the Northern part of Namibia's Atlantic coast, where the desolate Namib Desert meets the sea, the shoreline is littered with the skeletal remains of shipwrecks, beached whales, and humans who fell victim to the area's dense fog, fierce currents, frigid waters, and treacherous reefs.
Many of the Whale and Seal skeletons are remains left during the Whaling Industry Boom of the 19th century.
