Sesuit Harbor Monster Resurfaces

What is it?

The Boston Globe, besides happily talking about the winning ways of the Red Sox baseball team, reported this week that the friendly “Harbor Monster” has appeared again off Dennis, Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Even crowds are observing it.

It is always good to have multiple eyewitnesses.

What were at first random, somewhat unbelievable sightings of a somewhat unknown beast are today being fully understood through frequent closeup sightings and photography.

A series of remarkable images have been captured of this creature.

Needless to say, this “Sesuit Harbor Monster” is a very-out-of-place, probable recent Florida resident, an example of the West Indian manatee (Trichechus manatus), covered in a considerable amount of green algae growths.

Not all monsters are necessarily scary.

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.

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.
