Icelandic lake monster spotted slithering through ice
Cameraman Hjörtur Kjerúlf captured this video of the Lagarfljótsormurinn (or Lagarfljóts Worm) wending its way through its home in Lake Lagarfljót.
This creature has been sighted on and off since 1345 and possesses an origin straight out of one of Hellboy's less exciting adventures.
Koolasuchus was an aquatic temnospondyl estimated to have been around 4 to 5 metres (13 to 16 ft) in length. Its mass has been estimated to be up to 500 kilograms (1,100 lb). Although represented by incomplete material, the skull was likely 65 centimetres (26 in) long. Like other chigutisaurids, it had a wide, rounded head and tabular horns projecting from the backside of the skull.
