Did the Loch Ness monster take a London holiday? A strange creature was spotted swimming in the Thames river near the O2 Arena and even the experts are stumped as to what this possible creature could be. Click to watch!
London is such a wonderful town to visit. Tourists can visit Buckingham Palace, take in a pint in a British pub and possibly see a terrifying sea monster! The newest horror of the creepy world was spotted swimming in the Thames and luckily, it was captured on video!
“This was the cable car in Greenwich yesterday,” YouTuber user Penn Plate wrote on his video, uploaded on March 27. “Something huge was moving under the water and then briefly surfaced.” The clip, filmed from the Emirates Air Line cable car that passes over the river near the O2 arena, according to the Mirror, shows three dark bumps breaking the river’s surface before diving back down to the murky depths.
Tourists are eager to have a monstrously good time, as Thames river tour operators have told The Standard they’ve been swamped with people who want to see the creature. “We have had enquiries from our customers about it,” Greg Swaby of London’s RIB voyages, “and we’ve joked we will have to equip our guides with a conch to warn off the Kraken.” Put together the ultimate playlist for monster hunting after signing up for unlimited and ad-free streaming music here.
How very creepy! Could it be Lake Champlain’s Champy or The Loch Ness Monster taking a vacation? “We had a good look at the footage but it isn’t clear enough to make out what we’re looking at,” Ian Tokelov of the London Wildlife Trust told the Standard. Some have speculated that it was possibly a lost sperm whale, as almost 50 whales and 450 porpoises and dolphins have been reported in London’s waters since 1913, per the Mirror.
Is the Thames River Monster now the hottest thing in the creature world? The Jersey Devil made a surprise comeback in Oct. 2015, appearing in Little Egg Harbor Township who reportedly filmed the monster. Then, Los Angles had its now-legendary U.F.O sighting and then the Goatman monster was spotted in Texas. But those creatures were so last year. 2016 is the year of the Thames River creature.
What do you think the Thames River Monster is, HollywoodLifers? Did they discover a new creature or do you think it’s just a whale?
