ogopo2011 has indeed spoken to the people that were involved in the shooting of the video as noted yesterday here at Cryptomundo. His info is accurate insofar as the name of the son is concerned and the letter the last name starts with.
I just worked with the son of the father, who were both on their fishing boat and video’ed the big caddys and the little caddys.
He told me that the big ones (2) were about 40 feet long and had necks about a foot and a half to 2 feet thick with a head shaped like “the front/cockpit of a 747″, the skin was dark grey, black, and the juveniles were about 8 feet long.
He and his dad were apprehensive about getting closer to the adults because they were so big and muscular, powerful. As big, if not bigger than their boat.
Anyhow, Discovery paid them $75,000 for the video.
Loren, their last name starts with an N, the son’s first name is Kyle, so you know I am telling the truth.
Kyle told me he NEVER believed in these things before, but sure does now… ogopo2011
The estimate of 40 feet long seems a bit long for what Paul Leblond and I saw in the video. I was not there like the witness was, but I have a hard time accepting the 40 foot length. It was more like twenty feet at most, but then again I wasn’t standing on the deck of the ship from which the video was taken.
Like ogopo2011 says there are indeed little animals and larger ones.
I am just so disappointed that it is taking an eon to get this footage to our TV screens. I suggest readers write to Discovery Channel and tell them to show as much of the footage as they have and to show the original enhancements made by the guy who shot the footage.
Come on people get typing.
