ALASKA’S OWN LOCH NESS MONSTER?
July 23, 2011
(ALASKA) -- A few more sightings like this one and folks in Alaska may be able to generate a whole new tourist industry trade not unlike that which exists at Scotland’s Loch Ness, home of the legendary “Nessie”, the Loch Ness Monster.
The Discovery Channel aired a special earlier this week hinting that Alaska may have its own version of Nessie, according to one cryptozoologist who says a video shows a mysterious marine animal, which might be a Cadborosaurus; a word meaning "reptile" or "lizard."
Or, as some would say, a sea serpent that might have a long neck, a horse-like head, large eyes, and back bumps that stick out of the water.
The TV special showed video footage shot by Alaskan fishermen in 2009.
While there’s speculation that Cadborosaurus is actually a frill shark, a large eel, or perhaps some kind of strange fish, others say it can’t be a fish due to the way it moves in the water.
The thinking is that it must be a mammal or a reptile since it oscillates up and down in a vertical plane.
