Another Nessie Like Sea Serpent?

30 yards off the British coast, people have claimed to see what some are calling a sea serpent. This long necked creature seems to have marine experts “baffled.” Supposedly this creature was stalking a school of fish that were so terrified that they ended up beaching themselves.

Many locals thought this creature to be a turtle, but Gill Pearce who snapped the photo says different. She claimed its skin was greenish brown and had the head of a reptile, much too large to be a turtle. Pearce reported her sighting to the Marine Conservation Society (MCS) where the photo was analyzed by sea life experts, which quickly dismissed the claim of a large sea turtle due to the fact they only eat jelly fish.

A MCS official said the following “It was reported as a turtle as it had large front flippers and small back flippers and what appeared to be a shell but was also said to have a small head on a thin neck about two-feet long which craned above the surface like a plesiosaur.”

The MCS also states “This is not a fake. The problem is the distance and clarity from which the photos were taken.” As of now the MCS says this creature is “unidentified.” And they are asking locals to keep an eye out and possibly take more photos.

After seeing the photo the first thought that popped into my head was “another shitty photo of an “unknown” animal.” I have always found it interesting that people who photograph Bigfoot or sea serpents never ever have clarity on their side. My guess is simple, driftwood.

About Bobby the Paranormal Skeptic
Bobby Nelson is a skeptic, writer, and co-host of Strange Frequencies Radio. His personal blog can be found online at www.porkrhine.com At one time, Bobby was what could be called a "true believer" in paranormal phenomenon. Having been an active investigator of the paranormal for 12 years with several different Toledo based teams, he has examined countless claims of activity. But years worth of research and investigation proved to him that the evidence for these claims are generally lacking and, furthermore, the vast majority of so-called scientific paranormal investigators were using improper methodologies which caused them to draw both false and misleading conclusions.
