There’s something lurking just under the surface of the Lake Worth Lagoon in West Palm Beach, Florida.
The mysterious creature was caught on tape by the LagoonKeepers.
“Channel marker ten is the first time we saw the unknown creature,“ says Greg Reynolds of LagoonKeeper.org. “I hollered out and said ‘What is that?‘. We followed it, started taking video.“
What could it be?
Thanks to the LagoonKeepers, until it’s identified, it has a name:
Reynolds calls it The Elusive Muck Monster.
Thomas Reinert, a Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Marine Biologist, studied the video.
“This appears to be one animal moving in this direction. Nothing’s breaking the surface. Typically dolphins break the surface, sea turtles, manatee, a large school of fish, if it were a shark at that level you would see a fin,“ he says. “I cant definitely say what it is.“
“We spend a lot of time out here on the water and seen a lot of different creatures out here and this is the first time in three and half years that I’ve ever seen anything out here that didn’t know what it was,“ Reynolds said. “We see dolphins out there, sharks, we always see a fin.“
Whatever it is, it certainly has people talking, and watching.
