Large Sea Monster Spotted Off The British Town Of Tynemouth

Why is every strange sea creature called "The Loch Ness Monster"?

So says the eyewitness, who spotted the Loch ness monster in the territory of the English County of Tyne and Wear.

According to residents of a small British town of Tynemouth, this is the first time the semi-mythical monster who chose to leave familiar surroundings. Relaxing on the local beach, a man watched by some large creature that had risen above the water. It showed the head and, by assumption, only the long neck, doing something in the same place for a while. However, in the Network, where the British shared their observations disagreed with him.

Users noted that the creature reminds them of the mythical monster of Scotland. It is more likely that it’s just kind of a very long fish. For example, eel or herring king. Also users said the reservoir doesn’t look large enough to fit the Loch ness monster. It is worth noting that sightings of such monsters appear frequently, however, experts advise to carefully study the fauna, before taking the strange creatures for anomalies.


Sightings of strange sea creatures a not that uncommon in the waters surrounding the British isles. For centuries both seaman sailing along the coasts and people enjoying a vacation along the water have spotted animals which more resembled prehistoric monsters than anything in the lists of known sea creatures. Over the past century several such mysterious monsters have reportedly washed ashore in numerous locations along the UK coastline. Many of these unfortunately occurred during the Second World War when the carcasses were quickly disposed of. It's hard to take the time to carefully study the body of a mysterious sea creature while an enemy is trying to bomb you into submission I would suppose, so I really can't blame anyone for that.

According to eyewitnesses what may possibly be the best possible evidence for the existence of living dinosaurs in the ocean off Great Britain was Gourock Sea Serpent which washed ashore in 1942, along the shores of Gourock, over looking the river Clyde.

A council officer by the name of Charles Rankin took it upon himself to take detailed notes concerning this beast. Measuring to a length of over 27-feet, this animal was described by Rankin in great detail. Its most notable features included a small, flattened head that tapered to a point with pronounced brow ridges situated over laterally slit eyes.

The creature’s jawbones were reportedly full of large, pointed teeth. The skull was nestled atop a long neck, which connected to a partially exposed spinal column. The animal’s torso still bore two pairs of what have been described as L-shaped flippers, which were smaller in the fore-potion, than the rear. The spine eventually tapered off into a long, rectangular tail.

According to Rankin, the creature’s skin harbored a multitude of 6-inch long, quill-like bristles and its appearance was reptilian in nature.This reptilian visage — along with the four flippers, sharp muzzle and broad tail — begs one to consider the possibility that this creature might be a relic marine reptile known as the mosasaur.
Since the body washed ashore during wartime, in an area that the government deemed of strategic importance, no photographs of the monster were allowed and it's remains were chopped up and buried in an area that is now the football field of a local private school.

No self respecting Englishman would ever desecrate a soccer field so these remains will likely remain safe from any scientific examination for the foreseeable future. - Ken Hulsey
