18-meter ‘water monster’ seen in east China
Residents said the suspected “water monster” is about 18 meters long and "moves like a snake".
Residents saw a black object slithering through the water surface. They said the suspected “water monster” is about 18 meters long and "moves like a snake" just feet away from the river banks of Yangtze River, Mirror reports.
Professor Wang Chunfang, from Huazhong Agricultural University, suggested that it could be a water snake. "It's definitely not a water monster. Could be some marine animals that have been living under the water for years. I can't tell what it is exactly as only a little of it surfaced. But it moves like a snake. It should be some sort of reptile - and more likely to be a water snake," she said.
Workers at the pier claimed it could have been a pile of rubber band and canvas.
