I find all this video footage and eyewitness testimony to be very compelling evidence for a large unknown mammal species. These people are seeing a very long and slender sea creature with the head of an otter or seal that has pectoral fins.
Some of the fins on the sea creature do look like they have been hit by a propeller. If it can happen to a manatee, it sure can happen to this seacreature when it’s near the surface.









We were fishing on our boat in the shallow bay area of Sanibel Island, FL on October 6th, 2013 when we saw what looked like a bus speeding through the water. At first we thought we were watching Manatee swimming which we see all the time but this animal was moving very fast and looked to be attacking something. All of a sudden, part of its body sprung out of the water and appeared to have something wrapped up. Then it was gone. We honestly don't know what it was but it's head resembled a sea otter and the body looked like a giant 20 plus foot snake. If a cement utility poll was laying down horizontally, that would be the width and length of this sea creature.







Normandy nessie

Not much to see in the Normandy nessie videos but what caught my eye was the way it blew out water from its nose (1:00). It looks very similar to the way the creature in the Gene sowerwine footage did it. You can see it at the beginning of the monsterquest video.

Sightings go way back






All of these sea creatures have a trident tail.

It is a Manatee that has been maimed by boat propellors. It happens all the time here there is one that stays near where I fish that its back fin is mangled to the point I am amazed it has survived.

They are friendly docile creatures. Unfortunatly local boaters raise hell about no wake zones especially after they spent so much money on their speed boats to impress others.

I'm not convinced that what people are seeing is a manatee. The way it acts and moves through the water is nothing like a manatee. Manatees don't have pectoral fins which you can see in the videos.

This looks like a pectoral fin that got hit

theres no nessie even tho i,m from scotland i wish there was.

loch ness is hugely deep and long but as people have said there wouldn,t be enough food to substain a creature that size for the length of time its suppose to have been about.

no idea the size of lake for this one but sure same theory applies.

Despite the name of some of the videos, the footage is taken from the waters off the coast of Florida.

It looks just like a maimed manatee dorsal fin to me. It still acts like a manatee. The rapid movements are so it can move through the water with the damaged fins.

Same color as a manatee because it is a Manatee.

I don't know who the yahoos are on the video but if they are Floridians I think they are morons.

I have had Manatees almost tip my canoe because I startled them they can move fast when they want to I have even seen them in the ocean to where they scared the crap out of me while I was siting on my board waiting for a wave to where they come up and snort the water out of their nostrils beside me.

I have zero doubts that what is in those videos is a poor manatee that has been severely maimed.

Did you watch all the videos? The head structure is totally different. And there are pectoral fins that you can see.




No need for name calling.

It says that is from Sanibel Island, FL so here is a map showing you the area.



That is a perfect are for manatees they have been known to venture out during calmer waters but that are would be perfect for them because the islands act as a break so everything on the backside of those islands would be calm water even when there are waves. Florida isn't that great for waves there have been many times I planed to surf after work only to be disgusted by Lake Atlantic.

I am not callin you a moron just the guys in the videos if they are Floridians because they should know better.

Jeez...... Lake Atlantic is what we call the Atlantic Ocean when there are zero waves. Hence the comment about goin over planing to surf and was disgusted at the site of "Lake Atlantic" AKA the Atlantic Ocean when it is as calm as a lake.


FYI that video really isn't in open ocean it looks to be the backside of the island on the map near some alcoves.

I have to disagree and there’s no need to call them names. I believe them when they say they weren't looking at a manatee. The way it moves especially when its head is above the water is nothing like a manatee.

Point is, it's not a lake lol.

It’s the Gulf of Mexico to be precise.

Well I tell you what, if you can find someone willing to bet the farm that it isn't a manatee I will take them up on the bet and first thing as soon as the signature is dry on the legal binding bet (which can be done here on casino cruise or reservations) I will jump in my truck gas up my boat load up the scuba tanks my go pro and prove beyond a doubt it is a manatee.

BTW you should know that Sanibel Island is on the gulf side of Florida.

As far as calling them names my opinion of them stands if they are Floridians. How they can say that being serious I don't know unless this is a hoax then my opinion of them is worse. It is obvious to me that it is a manatee.
