The far reaches of the ocean are dark and cold and unsettling. Who even knows what creatures lurk in the murky waters of the Northern Atlantic or near the Mariana Trench. Though uncertain, there are certainly things living in these places; unusual sea creatures, with long sinewy bodies and razor sharp teeth; sea serpents. Strange ocean creatures that are the reason for today’s zany holiday, Sea Serpent Day!

Some excellent comments from the Cryptomundians regarding Nick’s post: Profiling the Gloucester Sea Serpent
Posted by: Craig Woolheater on July 27th, 2015
Sightings of so-called Sea Serpents abound within the domain of monster-hunting. More often than not, they are encounters of a fleeting, one-time nature. But not always. One of the most enduring of all such leviathans of the deep is that which haunts the port of Gloucester, Massachusetts, and which is situated just north of the city of Boston.

From terrorist hunter to monster hunter! Jack Rastun was a decorated U.S. Army Ranger, until an unfortunate incident forced him out of the service. He is soon hired by the Foundation for Undocumented Biological Investigation and given a new mission, to search for cryptids, creatures whose existence has not been proven by mainstream science.

After extensive research, I finally wrote my long-planned second dragons book – entitled Dragons in Zoology, Cryptozoology, and Culture – and saw it published in 2013 by Coachwhip Publications of Greenville, Ohio. It constitutes one of the most comprehensive dragon-themed factual books ever published, is sumptuously illustrated throughout in full colour, and very recently I was delighted to see not one but two positive, encouraging reviews of it.

Lake Clinch in Polk County has a long history of a monster in its depths. In the 1928 book, “A History of Polk County,” M.F. Hetherington documents tales of a huge creature in Lake Clinch. “The Indians many years ago insisted there was an immense serpent in this lake,” Hetherington wrote. “In 1907 residents of Frostproof declared they had seen the monster, and that it must be 30 feet long.”

You probably are aware of “Champ” the legendary sea monster of Lake Champlain, often dubbed the American Nessie, referring to Scotland’s Loch Ness Monster. Though no concrete evidence exists, no one has disproved him either. Hundreds of people, spanning several centuries, claim to have seen Champ, though descriptions do vary. Champ has been described as being anywhere from 10 to over 150 feet long. Some sightings claim to have seen humps, some claim Champ is snake-like. Some have seen a horse-like head, while others have seen horns or antlers. The famous Sandra Mansi photograph, taken in the late 1970s, provided a visual view of at least something and experts, who examined the photo, claimed it was not a fake.

Dragons, Bigfoot, chupacabras, unicorns, mermaids. These legendary creatures have captured imaginations, inspired art and culture, and spurred wild speculation. In the new exhibition Mythic Creatures: Dragons, Unicorns, and Mermaids, opening at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science on Friday, March 20, the world’s most enduring fantastical beings come to life through dazzling statues and models—such as a unicorn and 17-foot-long dragon—and are examined more critically through real fossils and cultural objects that have created generations of lore.
