Freed by chance geologic events from the refuge that saved its kind 65 million years previously, a Mesozoic horror rises to engulf a quaint East Coast Florida town. An 80-foot eating machine that’s neither fish nor mammal, the relentless beast wreaks havoc in the already-complicated lives of several disparate people: a former Olympic fencing champion turned small town sheriff, a conservationist/marine biologist and a psychotic politician. Some other Mesozoic dietary staples of this monster make cameos along the way, as well as some familiar “sea monsters” of modern oceans.

You might still hear about a UFO sighting or two in Maine – or maybe a report of a large beast in the woods. But it’s much less common to hear modern accounts of the sea serpent. There was a time, though, when such sightings were much more common, and reported by upstanding citizens. In the latest installment of our occasional series, Maine’s Hidden History, Maine Things Considered host Tom Porter turns once again to Portland historian Herb Adams.

It was fine fall day in October 1933 when W.H. Langley and his wife set out for an afternoon’s sail near Victoria. Their boat had reached the point of Discovery Island when they made a discovery of their own. A greenish-brown creature, later named Cadborosaurus, was travelling quickly in front of their boat. In a CBC interview, Mrs. Langley recalls that she wasn’t afraid, merely interested. “It took my fancy that it wasn’t anything we’d seen before,” she says.

We must remember that the best case for most cryptids at this point in time is based on ambiguous, circumstantial evidence and any possible connections to extinct animals are tenuous at best. Assuming the bulk of descriptive and photographic evidence might be correct and bear some resemblance to a known fossil form, we should not overlook the remarkable phenomenon of convergent evolution. It’s within the realm of possibility that some recently evolved animal, unknown to us in fossil form, has developed features similar to some well known extinct forms.
