Video of Giant Alaskan Sea Serpent to Be Broadcast


Nothing like a good sea monster story to liven up July ratings:

Some are claiming that the animal is a "Cadborosaurus," a type of reptile or lizard that got its name from Cadboro Bay, in British Columbia. They say that what's in the video is a sea serpent that dwells in the North Pacific and possibly other regions.

Accounts generally describe it as having a long neck, a horse-like head, large eyes, and back bumps that stick out of the water.

The footage, shot by Alaskan fishermen in 2009, will make its public debut on "Hillstranded," a new Discovery Channel special that will air Tuesday evening at 10 p.m. E/P.

Sightings of "Cadborosaurus" have been reported for ages. 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.

No doubt that screen cap could be anything else.

  4. Seems like whenever anybody films something like this, they always choose the camera with the broken lens.

  6. Not to be confused with the Cadburysaurus, which is made entirely of chocolate.
