Back in 2009, a video may provide new evidence of the existence of an Alaskan Loch Ness Monster, Discovery News reported.
The footage, shot by Alaskan fishermen in 2009, will be shown public on "Hillstranded," a new Discovery Channel special that will air Tuesday evening at 10 p.m. EDT.
Some claim the animal to be a “Cadborosaurus,” a reptilian creature named after Cadboro Bay, in. Those who have sighted this rare beast describe it as having a long neck, a horse-like head, large eyes, and back bumps that stick out of the water.
Reports of Loch-Ness-like sightings have been popping up like popcorn in the area since the 1930s, yet the only proof of Cadborosaurus’s possible existence are cloudy photographs and shaky eyewitness accounts.
Paul LeBlond, former head of the Department of Earth and Ocean Sciences at the University of British Columbia, believes the 2009 video “adds to its authentication.” LeBlond, co-author of the book “Cadborosaurus: Survivor from the Deep,” told Discovery News that he was impressed with the video, though it was shot under rainy conditions in a bouncy ship, and it is very real. LeBlond likened the sea monster to a plesiosaur, a carnivorous aquatic reptile said to have gone extinct during the Cretaceous Period. Others are more dubious, with the belief that the Cadborosaurus to be a frill shark, a large eel, or some kind of fish.
