Tsunami Stirring Up Waves Of Sea Serpents

PORTLAND, Maine (Wireless Flash) -- The recent tsunami in south Asia is stirring up lots of relief efforts -- and it could also be splashing all sorts of unknown sea creatures onto the shoreline.

Cryptozoologist Loren Coleman, co-author of "The Field Guide To Lake Monsters And Sea Serpents" (Tarcher/ Penguin), predicts that relief workers will soon be finding a large number of "globsters" on area beaches.

"Globsters" is the term given to big masses of round flesh that measure between eight and 20 feet. Although the globs look like octopi, Coleman says they are often previously-undiscovered species of sea serpents, dolphins or whales.

Coleman says human relief efforts must take priority but fears that clean-up workers may destroy the carcasses of new creatures before scientists can identify them.

He hopes that workers who come across any strange sea creatures photograph them and post the photos online so they can be researched after humanitarian efforts are finished.

Bizarre sea creatures aren't the only new animals that could be uncovered by the tsunami: Coleman says many undiscovered land animals may also be identified as they move to higher ground to avoid flooding

Bit of wishfull thinking...there's been plenty of tsunami's in the past, and none have bought with them a wave (no pun intended) of new species. Most of the "globbsters" have been found to be chuncks of whale blubber, decomposing sharks etc etc anyway.

Yeah, and chances are no self-respecting whale-blubber is gonna be found dead (excuse pun there) on and island after a tsunami. Just worry about the people. Monsters come second.

But wait--There are no monsters.

You're right. Human relief efforts should be the only real priority. However, most serious cryptozoologists are not out hunting fire-breathing dragons and Bigfoot. It would define their careers just to examine a new species of jellyfish, etc. This guy sounds a little over optimistic, and probably "tinkering on the scales" if you know what I mean. His words, not mine

Interesting. So, realistically, what kind of depth do these Tsunami's reach in the ocean? As in how deep would you have to go to avoid being swept along? I haven't really thougt about the subject, but generally waves are transverse aren't they? As in the water moves up and down, it's just the crests/troughs that appear to move, or are these somewhat different to huge waves?

I would have thought that an animal far out in the ocean wouldn't have been picked up and carried to shore by said waves, just kinda, well, bobbed up and down a bit. It's only whe the wave runs out of deep water and hits land that it turns to a large movement longitudinally.

Any budding oceanographers around? Help

I read on yahoo's homepage about two divers who were 7 miles out that were sucked down and thrown around a bit. I can't remember the depth they were at when the tsunami got to them. They had no idea what had happened til they had reached shore and noticed the devastation.

Well, 9.0 earthquakes with tsunamis doesnt come every day... Especially not in the middle of one of earth largest oceans.

Unfortunately a tsunami doesnt 'tear' things with it, only if they live/stay close to the shore. And most monsters dont do that! Or do they....?

One of my friends was in Indonesia scuba diving at the time. Not sure how far he was down, couldn't have been too far though. In the time span that he was down there, he came up and everything was utterly destroyed and devasted. He felt no effects of the tsunami down there and didn't even know it had occured until he saw his boat destroyed and the carnage that had taken place. Who knows if new species will be discovered though, just giving my knowledge.

we've had some big ass squids wash up out here in california, there's a couple of threads on here already about that, but as for new creatures like something that'll blow your mind, that's doubtful (imo).

Besides we're really not talking about new creatures but really really old creatures right?

I would like to see some new creatures random evolution at it's finest. Some new animals I would like to see are, the foxopotamus, the penguinoceros and of course the chimpanzphin.

There is an e-mail going around the Internet with pictures of supposed washed up deep sea creatures from the tsunami but it is a hoax. The pictures are of real deep sea fish but they weren't found after the tsunami.

Here are the pictures and debunk: www.snopes.com...

Even tho nothing about them indicates that? Even tho the only tests have confirmed that they're either rotting whale carcases or putrified remains of large squid?

Why would any deep sea creatures be washed up anyway? The water that washed up was near coastal.

My take - a cover story for efforts to find (more) evidence of an infectious epidemic affecting sea dwellers. ...At the cellular level, with histochemical analysis, not too different than gross human obesity - an accumulation of a-smooth muscle actin protein creating myofibroblasts (mutated connective tissue stem cells)....

a tsunami is diffrent to a normal wave. with a tsunami to water from the surface to the bottom of the ocean is all moved along. regular waves can get to be bigger (taller) than a tsunami (search for a wave called jaws in hawaii) but the water goes up and down. instead of breaking the wave just washes straight up on to the shore. so it might be able to pull up any thing even at the very bottom of the ocean.

Tiddly i heard about "jaws". Isnt that like a place somewhere off the coast of Hawaii were the waves are just BIG? I remember seeing photo's of surfers there. I didnt know it was like a specific wave.

Croat56, the link that you gave is a hoax. I mean those fish are real, but they have been found WAY before the tusnami...just saying.

Well sorry im not a marine biologist I dont know. All it sais was fish that were found not new species.
