http://www.hoax-slayer.com/images/tampa-sea-monster.jpg











Photographs of this strange and ferocious looking creature have been circulating via email and online since mid 2006. The images have generated a lot of discussion. Given that our oceans do indeed harbour some strange and wonderful denizens, many have postulated that the creature might be a deep-sea fish hitherto unknown to science.

In fact, the "creature" is a sculpture by Tampa Bay artist Juan Cabana. Mr Cabana has created an entire menagerie of mermaids, sea monsters and aliens, some of which he offers for sale on eBay under the name "seamystery". This particular "Sea Monster" was the subject of an eBay auction in June 2006. The same photographs that are now circulating were included in the eBay description of the item.

Something that absolutely fascinates me...

Bloop:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bloop

The Bloop is the name given to an ultra-low frequency underwater sound detected by the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration several times during the summer of 1997. The source of the sound remains unknown.

Some of the more hard-coded evidence that we have of giant sea-monsters... Though it's probably more of a giant mudsucker at the bottom than anything else.

...

I am also fascinated by cryptozoology:

"Dipro"

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v623/Chronogrl/dipro.jpg

"Merman"

V already covered the Mungfish, which is one ugly sucker... And I am also fascinated by the shark found with legs:

the shark with legs i would say might be genuine, the rest are obvious fakes.

aorry to say, there are no recorded giant jellyfish that big. i stress recorded, no onw knows what lives in the midwater area between the top 100 feet an d the bottom, it is the lleast explored area on our planet.

mostly because studying it in a sub has been comapred to studying the grand canyon at night in a helecopter, using only a canlde for light.

Yup! Here's the article for the shark with legs:

http://www.underwatertimes.com/news.php?article_id=73210864950

That picture just amuses, interests, and creeps me out all at the same time...

The "mermen" are obvious fakes (which make me laugh)...

The "Diplocaulus" was made my a Japanese artist which he photographed in a pan on his lawn to appear as though he caught it. The neat thing about that picture was that people actually took it seriously at the time. I can understand why; for a forgery, it looks pretty damn good (I know that I thought it was real when I first saw it).

It's an actual dinosaur, though. Just not... Still living. heh

no, if you look closely, you can tell it has been photoshopped. A REALLY good photoshop, however.

the creature is a Diplocaulus, an amphibian that predates the dinosaurs by quite a bit. It si one of those things that if a living one were found, it would be a HUGE deal. Do you remember the hubbub when they finally got a live giant squid on film a few years back?

It would be way bigger than that, even bigger than the coelocanth.

give me a bit and i will round up some really cool real animals.

http://www.gabourgeois.com/images/octo.jpg

this is a horrible picture, but it has not been disproven. supposedly, back in the 1800s, an octopus that was over 80 to 100 feet from tentacle tip to tip washed up dead on a shore. it took a team of horses to drag it up on the beach, whihc mostly destroyed it (Molluscs are pretty fragile, having no bones., especially when dead)

supposedly a college in england (Oxford i think) has a chunk of it in formadehyde, and the striations of the tissue are fairly consistent with an octopus. it is considered inconclusive, and not enough evidence exists to prove or disprove the claim, but it invites the possibility that three are some MASSIVE creatures living in the ocean. :D
