Sea monster

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The St. Augustine Monster as it appeared after being dug out of the sand.

A sea monster is a monster that is found dwelling in the sea. People have reported seeing sea monsters. One of the most famous monster sightings is the Loch Ness Monster.

There are also sea monster sightings in apps, such as a mysterious creature in Google Maps found roaming the ocean. Some people think sea monsters exist. Other people say they aren’t real at all. There are also prehistoric creatures that may be called sea monsters. They are not real, so we refer them to as fictional creatures.

Although they are not real, some creatures can look like sea monsters, such as anglerfish (Lophiiformes), giant squid (Architeuthis dux), colossal squid (Mesonychoteuthis hamiltoni), and the blobfish (Psychrolutes marcidus).

The Loch Ness Monster, better known as Nessie, is one of the most popular sea monsters. In 1934, a gynaecologist named Robert Kenneth Wilson took four photos of the monster. Only two came out clearly. The first was very popular while the second one wasn't dur to being blurry. However, we mostly agree that it is indeed a hoax. This is called the surgeon's photograph.
