Ok this is pretty gnarly!! A guy is merrily snorkelling off Southern California and he happens upon this Lochness, giant serpent from the deep-style sea monster! Is there anything more terrifying you could chance upon other than say a great white shark!? He somehow collects himself enough to swim like a freak to shore and the beast is later located by Jasmine Montana, a science instructor from Catalina Island Marine Institute, but it’s dead. Phew. She identifies it as an 18-foot long oarfish and it took 15 people to carry it up the beach.
Just what we need floating around the darkest recesses of our consciousness the next time we head for a surf or sea swim.
