Horned Sea Serpent washes up on Spanish beach

A carcass of a creature many believe is somekind of sea monster was found washed up on Luis Siret beach along the Spanish coast on Aug 16. It was found in an advanced stage of decomposition but still held some form of what seems to be a kind of horned creature. The carcass measured four to five meters or 13 – 17 feet in length. Some skeptics believe that the creature is not a sea monster and is more likely some species of fish with some speculating that it could be thresher shark. But other believe that the pictures of the creature show something that looks very little like a shark and may very well be something yet to be discovered maybe even a sea serpent. Here are the horned sea monster photos for you to have a look and decide for yourself what this creature may actually be.

At first glance it looks like another dark ripple on the water.

But study the photograph more closely and a dark hump and tail can be seen poking through the water’s surface, or so a life-long hunter of the Loch Ness monster hunter claims.

William Jobes, 62, believes that he may have at last captured the elusive creature on camera after 45 years of trying.

‘I had a wonderful shock,’ Mr Jobes said.’I have actually been coming up to Inverness for the past 45 years and I have never seen anything like this before.’

Quickly grasping his camera, Mr Jobes from Irvine in Ayrshire, managed to take a single picture before the ‘head’ disappeared under the surface.

However, to his delight a dark, hump-like shape broke the waves and he was able to take more photographs of the apparent sighting on May 24 at just after 11.10am.

Mr Jobes is convinced it was not a seal or piece of wood.

‘To be honest I know the difference between a piece of wood or a particular animal,’ he said.

‘I immediately did think it was a seal but it’s head was like a sheep.’

However, veteran Nessie hunter Steve Feltham, remains sceptical, although he admits the hump photograph cannot be immediately explained and is worth further investigation.

‘The river comes out there and something large could have come down the river and flowed out there,’ he suggested.

Mr Jobes’ is the second potential sighting of nessie so far this summer.

Last month Foyers shop and cafe owner Jan Hargreaves and her husband Simon believe they caught a glimpse of the creature.

The apparent sighting of Nessie comes after a couple were left shocked when they discovered the rotting body of a sea monster while walking along a beach at Bridge of Don,  Aberdeen.

Margaret and Nick Flippence made the incredible find as they exercised their dogs at the popular beauty spot.

Mr Flippence, 59, who lives nearby, said: ‘We were stunned. I thought, “oh my God what is it?”

Curled up by the foot of sand dunes was the 30ft-long body of the unidentified animal with head, tail and teeth all discernible.

Experts are now examining the pictures with one suggesting it could be the body of a whale.

Before the discovery of the enormous sea carcass, a large creature, 20 to 30ft long with humps on its back, was filmed moving through the waters of an Alaskan bay.

The unidentified creature which was filmed by local fisherman in 2009 has already drawn comparisons to Scotland’s infamous Loch Ness Monster.

Scientists believe that the Alaskan creature could be a Cadborosaurus -  a type of sea serpent that got its name from Cadboro Bay in British Columbia and is said to roam the North Pacific.

Paul LeBlond, former head of the Department of Earth and Ocean Sciences at the University of British Columbia, told Discovery News: ‘I am quite impressed with the video.

‘Although it was shot under rainy circumstances in a bouncy ship, it’s very genuine.’

The Cadborosaurus willsi, meaning ‘reptile’ or ‘lizard’ from Cadboro Bay, is an alleged sea serpent from the North Pacific thought to have a long neck, a horse-like head, large eyes, and back bumps that stick out of the water.

In 1937, a supposed body of the animal was found in the stomach of a whale captured by the Naden Harbour whaling station in the Queen Charlotte Islands, a British Columbia archipelago.

Samples of the animal were brought to the Provincial Museum in Victoria, where curator Francis Kermode concluded they belonged to a fetal baleen whale.

The animal’s remains, however, later disappeared.

James Wakelun, a worker at the whaling station, last year said that he saw the creature’s body and ‘it wasn’t an unborn whale.’

Like other cryptids, animals whose existence is suggested but not yet recognised by scientific consensus, the Cadborosaurus has existed only in grainy photographs and eyewitness accounts.

The Nushagak Bay Cadborosaurus video shot by Kelly Nash a local fisherman and his sons is to be showcased on Discovery Channels show Alaskan Monster Hunt. The show will also feature Johnathan and Andy Hillstrand from the very popular show “Deadliest Catch”. The Hillstrand’s get to see the Cadborosaurus video and go over it with Kelly Nash himself and also with cryptozoologist Paul Leblond and attempt to identify the mysterious creature also known as “Caddy“.

Johnathan and Andy Hillstrand will also put together a “monster trap” and go hunting for sea monsters in Lake Iliamna in Alaska. Lake Iliamna is the location of many sea monster sightings over the past several decades.

Here is a preview of the upcoming show and some of the Cadborosaurus video which will be looked at more in depth:

Sea creature sighted off British Coast

british coast sea creature

CYNICS may dismiss it as just a piece of driftwood or a trick of the light.

But a photograph showing what appears to be a long-necked sea creature has got marine experts scratching their heads.

The ‘animal’ was snapped stalking a shoal of fish just 30 yards off the British coast.

The fish were apparently so terrified they beached themselves just seconds later.

The creature was spotted off the Devon coast at Saltern Cove, Paignton, by locals who reported a sighting of what they thought was a turtle.

But pictures taken by one of the baffled witnesses, Gill Pearce, reveal the neck of the greenish-brown beast with the reptile-like head is far too long for it to be a turtle.

Mrs Pearce, who took the photo on July 27, reported her sighting to the Marine Conservation Society (MCS) where it was studied by sea life experts.

Claire Fischer from the MCS said: ‘Gill Pearce spotted the creature about 20m from the bay at Saltern Cove, near Goodrington.

‘It was observed at about 15.30 on 27 July but by the time she had got her camera it had moved further out.

‘She spotted it following a shoal of fish which beached themselves in Saltern Cove.

‘The creature remained in the sea, then went out again and followed the shoal – this indicates it’s not a turtle as they only eat jellyfish.

‘We would love to know if other people have seen anything like this in the same area and can help clear up the mystery.’

Sea Creature: Mysterious headless marine animal washes ashore

sea creature carcass


Neither local residents Warrick Lovell, Rich Park, Basil Park, or anyone else it seems, knows what the big creature found dead on a beach here this week might be.

The Department of Fisheries and Oceans in Corner Brook intends to check out the Lower Cove site today hoping to find some answers for the question of many curious onlookers who went there to see for themselves what Lovell found during a Wednesday afternoon walk on the beach.

“It would be nice to see if anyone knows what it is,” says Lovell. “First I thought it was a seal washed up (on the high tide earlier in the day), but when I went down to check on my boat that evening, I walked over to see and then I knew it wasn’t a seal.

“But, I don’t know what it is.”

Of unknown origin and species, so far, the odd-looking seaside carcass sits high and dry on the low tide, its approximately 15-foot length includes a pointed, 10-foot tail twisted in the sand, conjuring up Loch Ness monsters for some.

The animal, bearing a single flipper-like appendage on its right side, appears to have been decapitated and shows other signs of damage.

“I didn’t know what to think of it,” says Rich Park, also among the first to see it close up.

The long tapered tail on the squared torso of the carcass caused him to initially think the large hunk of flesh might be a tentacle off a giant squid Park said, but on closer inspection it became clearer what the protrusion was not that. It got hair on it in spots. I couldn’t (determine) what it was.”

“I’ve lived here all my life and never seen anything like it,” says Basil Park, who went Thursday went to take a look with friends and brothers Gilbert and Ernie Park, and neither one of them could say they knew what it was.

“There’s fishermen around here who fished all their lives and they couldn’t tell you.”

John Lubar with DFO says the Corner Brook office receives a number of calls from residents around the region each year reporting seals in brooks or to have rotting carcasses of whales or other dead things removed from a shoreline, but claims reports of unknown creatures from the deeps washing up are rare.

Common knowledge of the McIvers find spread by word of mouth over the past few days and at least one visitor to the site photographed the carcass and has posted it on Facebook.

DFO expects to have personnel in McIvers to do an inspection of Lower Cove by noon today.

Newfoundland and Labrador sea monsters

Author: CryPtoReporter  |  Category: Crypto News  |  Comments (0)  |  Add Comment

Sea monsters of various sizes and forms have inhabited the human imaginary universe and range in meaning from the profound to the curious. According to the Babylonian creation myth Enuma Elish, the god and hero Marduk battled the sea monster Tiamat before creation. From the conquered and torn body of the creature, Marduk then created the universe.

Other legends are less primordial and epic, but nonetheless spectacular enough to draw our attention, such as the Loch Ness monster, which periodically roams through the tabloid press.

Gilbert’s sea monster

Newfoundland and Labrador claims its share of such fabled creatures. Sir Humphrey Gilbert, on his way back from claiming the New Found Land for Queen Elizabeth and Britain in 1583, is said to have stared into the glaring eyes of a lion-like sea monster.

The Labrador Nennorluk

A sea creature of considerable ferocity is also known to the Inuit of Labrador. Nennorluk derives its name from the polar bear (Nennok, nanuk), but the Inuktitut affix “luk” indicates its evil intent.
One of the earliest mentions of the Labrador Nennorluk appeared in David Crantz’s “History of Greenland.” Crantz, preserving a 1773 tradition from Nain, says that the legendary amphibious creature “hunted and devoured the seals.” Each of its ears was “large enough for the covering of a capacious tent.” Worse yet, the “beast did not scruple to eat human flesh, when he came on shore.”

In Okak, Inuit reported seeing it in August 1786. They were quite upset when doubts were expressed about their testimony. The report had Nennorluk rise “up to the height of a huge ice-berg, in the mouth of the bay, showed its white colour, and then plunged down again, leaving a whirlpool of foam.” Moravian missionaries tried to demystify the creature by explaining it naturally. They suggested that it may have been a “tumbling iceberg.”

Nain tradition

The legend of Nennorluk could not be explained away that easily and had staying power. The missionary Carl Gottfried Albrecht writes from Nain on Aug. 26, 1840, that the monster, which “is white on the back like a polar bear,” was seen in the spring near the outer islands and at times resembles “a small island but quickly sinks down below (the water’s surface) and is supposed to cause a thunderous noise.”

Seals that saw it took flight instantly. Inuit believed that the Nennorluk “does not swim but walks on the bottom (of the ocean) and can thus only be seen if it reaches shallows; the more shallow the water, the higher it will rise from the water.”

People also claimed to have heard it turning over the rocks on which it walked. But whenever it was in the open sea, it could not be seen “since it has there enough room in the deep and thus does not appear above the water.”

Sighted at Cape Mugford

In the spring of 1847, Inuit once more reported sighting the Nennorluk not far from Cape Mugford.

This time, its “antennae-like sails or tents protruded out of the water at a distance of nearly 100 paces from each other.”
It scared people so much that “they made all haste to gain the shore.” Some of the Inuit who saw the creature added “that it has a voice resembling low thunder, very harsh, and unpleasant to hear.”

Shared Inuit legend

That the Nennorluk is a wider shared legend also known to other Inuit is documented by the famous anthropologist Knud Rasmussen, who recorded two stories of these fabled creatures with the same name among the Netsilik Inuit.

These creatures share with the Labrador species a giant size,
speed, ferociousness and threat to humans, whom they are said to swallow whole.

One of the stories told Rasmussen has them live in the water, but what is different in the Labrador narratives is the repeated emphasis on their walking in and under the water.

The Muck Monster Has an Official Home

Author: CryPtoReporter  |  Category: Crypto News  |  Comments (0)  |  Add Comment

The mysterious sea creature known as the “Muck Monster” has officially gained city residency.

Amid debates over budget cuts, tax hikes and potential layoffs, West Palm Beach commissioners took the time out to take care of the vital task of naming the Muck Monster an official citizen.

Good thing they did it now because rumor has it Dolphins owner Stephen Ross is looking for a new mascot to add to his changes.

The monster, which has gained fame like everything else these days – through YouTube video, has appeared only once in the Lake Worth Lagoon, but that cameo has made it the most famous resident in the city.

“This has actually become a pretty serious business,” Palm Beach Mayor Lois Frankel told the Palm Beach Post. “We’ll be visited by CNN, who will be looking for the Muck Monster. In all seriousness, what I think has happened is that, because of all of the work on the water front, the rebuilding of the sea wall and all the construction going down there, it has stirred up this creature.”

Scientists, biologists and locals have all made their guess as to exactly what the Muck Monster really is. There isn’t much evidence to go off of.

The viral video, shot by LagoonKeepers, shows some long, odd-shaped ripples moving through the lagoon in the animal’s wake. No head, arms or legs appear above the surface, but it’s pretty clear something massive is under the water.

Some say it is an otter or seal that made a wrong turn somewhere. Others say it could be a common animal in the region like a manatee or large gator that swam too close to the surface, creating the odd ripples.

And then there are those who believe in unicorns and fairy tale creatures who think it is a long lost link to the prehistoric past that has been living for countless years in West palm Beach water bodies.

West Palm Beach officials have their guess, too. Cash cow.

The city has already said they will set up feeding and viewing stations along the dock for visitors who want to try their hand at spotting the elusive creature.

With residency now established, does Muckie (trademark pending) have to pay property taxes or apply for a license? Good luck trying to collect.

The Elusive Muck Monster

Author: CryPtoReporter  |  Category: Sightings  |  Comment (1)  |  Add Comment

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.

Mysterious sea creature off Singer Island

Author: CryPtoReporter  |  Category: Crypto News  |  Comments (0)  |  Add Comment

Singer Island has its very own (kind of, sort of) sea monster, and it’s a TV star.

The popular History Channel show MonsterQuest was in town this year to film an episode about a strange being cavorting in the Lake Worth Lagoon. The location wasn’t divulged during the show for fear that people would disturb the animal.

But a Florida Atlantic University professor interviewed for the show confirms that those red and white smokestacks seen in some shots are, in fact, the Riviera Beach Florida Power & Light plant, and that the general stomping grounds of the alleged sea monster are waters near Singer Island.

MonsterQuest was lured here by video taken by Palm Beach Gardens resident Gene Sowerwine.

Film clips of the animal reveal “stunning evidence of a sea beast hunting for prey,” according to the show.

A trident-shaped tail slaps mirror-like water in one image; a strange elongated snout breaks the surface to take a quick breath in another.

One of the stars of the show, which originally aired in April, is FAU oceanography Professor Ed Petuch.

“What in heaven’s name is that,” Petuch exclaims playfully when shown images of the beast. “Very interesting, that’s very wild.”

Petuch ends the suspense of the hourlong episode with his conclusion that the Singer Island sea monster could be a wayward arctic seal – extremely rare for these parts but not unheard of. (The trident tail, one expert says, is likely a boat-mangled manatee fluke.)

And while Petuch takes the show for what it is – a spot of fun – he said it is also a poignant reminder of environmental conditions.

If the Singer Island sea monster is a hooded or bearded seal, it points to the possible displacement of such animals by global warming or overfishing.

“Nature is never constant, by law,” Petuch said. “The ice is melting, the surface waters are becoming more fresh water, and it’s driving them out of their normal ranges.”

In 2007, a bearded seal was caught in Fort Lauderdale after leading rescuers on a chase south from Hobe Sound. The year before, two hooded seals were found locally, one in Martin County, another 2 miles north of The Breakers hotel in Palm Beach.

But Sowerwine, who could not be reached for comment, sounds convinced in his MonsterQuest episode that what he has witnessed is no seal.

As eerie music bah-dumps in the background, the lifelong outdoorsman explains: “This is something I’ve never seen and I believe is totally unknown to science.”

Martine DeWit, associate research scientist with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, is a wet blanket on the Singer Island sea monster.

In her estimation, and she also is interviewed on the show, it is simply a manatee.

A boat-battered manatee, but a manatee no less.

“We know manatees can look like that when they get hit by a propeller,” DeWit said.

But what about that snout?

It appears longer than a manatee’s, Petuch says above MonsterQuest music – bah-dump.

“It appears to move at surprising speed,” a voice-over proclaims – bah-dump.

One MonsterQuest drawing of the seal/manatee-like beast includes ominous tusks.

“If this thing does exist like this, it would be one of the greatest discoveries of all time,” Petuch says to the camera with a quick smile – bah-dump.
