I’m very unwell at the moment, but nothing can bring me out a zombie like state like people swearing because they might be catching Sea Serpent footage! This is the commentary the poster has written to go along with the video:
Excuse the language we use in the clip. We were scared!
It’s either a massive Anaconda or a Sea Monster. Whatever came out of that water scared the life out of my fiancé and I. We were fishing on our boat in the shallow bay area of Sanibel Island, FL on October 6th, 2013 when we saw what looked like a bus speeding through the water. At first we thought we were watching Manatee swimming which we see all the time but this animal was moving very fast and looked to be attacking something. All of a sudden, part of its body sprung out of the water and appeared to have something wrapped up. Then it was gone. We honestly don’t know what it was but it’s head resembled a sea otter and the body looked like a giant 20 plus foot snake. If a cement utility poll was laying down horizontally, that would be the width and length of this sea creature.
Now obviously I wasn’t there, and I don’t know what this is, as I’m not familiar with the wildlife in the Florida bay systems, however I find this to be quite compelling footage taken by people who have experience with the types of animals and phenomena of the area. Regardless of what it is, it’s quite an exciting video, and you can tell they’re scared, just like I would have been!
Dr. Tsunemi Kubodera, with the help of his partner Kyoichi Mori was one of the first scientist to film the giant squid in its natural habitat. They relied on sperm-whale paths to find this squid, as sperm-whales prey on giant squids.
Scientist have learned that the giant squid uses a more agressive hunting style than they thought.
Just imagine what else is still out there.
Oarfish are very rarely seen. They are often considered the cause of “sea-serpent” myths as they can reach lengths of up to 30ft. Not much is known about their behavior or life cycle as they are rarely encountered. They only come upto the surface if they are seriously injured or dying.
This is a photograph of a saber-toothed whale. This rare whale washed up on a beach in New Zealand in 2010 after not being seen by humans for 150 years.
