Sagami Sea Monster?

Posted by: Loren Coleman on October 14th, 2010

According to Mark Frauenfelder at Boing Boing, we learn that “cameras aboard JAMSTEC’s Hyper-Dolphin ROV have captured footage of something strange lurking on the floor of Sagami Bay, southwest of Tokyo.”

What is it?

Loren Coleman About Loren Coleman
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.

  4. Weezy responds:

    Reminds me of something out of Star Wars.

  5. Mibs responds:

    Of course the video footage fades out as the camera approaches the strange form. To me, it looked too inanimate like a piece of man-made debris that sunk to the bottom and took on a strange appearance. You can definitely see that the object is covered in sediment.

  6. mystery_man responds:

    Oh now I can’t believe that I’m not the one that found and posted this! I thought I was supposed to be the one on top of the Japanese cryptid stuff. 😉

  7. Mcea0006 responds:

    To be honest, it looks like a rocky outcrop to me. With perhaps some shells on it.

  8. Roddy Hays responds:

    It’s an artifact on the seabed, sitting solidly in a dip where the current has scoured away the surrounding material. Two “somethings” just happen to be in the right place to appear to be eyes. It doesn’t move, it doesn’t breathe, there appear to be no gill movements. I could be totally wrong, but I do not think it is an animal.

    Looks suspiciously like a ventilator from a big boat to me.

  9. Macleod responds:

    I would not want to be crusing aroung the bottom and slowly watch that thing come into veiw!? Creeepy, but definately a rock with some nicely placed shells……..

  10. shownuff responds:

    whatever it is, it was freaky. it looks like it has eyes. just the way it faded in. i was hoping it moved or darted some opposite direction. i can dream rite.. lol

  11. korollocke responds:

    Nothing alive or interesting, just a piece of junk lying on the bottom of the bay.

  12. paint_man_2010 responds:

    once again a big deal is being made of absolutly nothing
