Humans have been speculating over the existence of the Loch Ness Monster for nearly 1,500 years, and even with all the advances in technology the legend still lives on. There are those who believe and those who don't. But no matter which side of the aisle you fall on personally, you have to admit that the footage we're about to show you is a little bit eery.
Perhaps this was nothing more than a Halloween prank. Or maybe, it's just nature doing what nature does best: intriguing humans with perplexing images. Regardless, this footage captured on October 18 at Alaska's Chena River certainly doesn't make you want to jump into the water.
What is it, exactly?
The video you just saw was recorded by workers of Alaska's Bureau of Land Management, and it has since gone viral. Employees Craig McCaa and Ryan Delaney shared the video on Facebook and it has already received more than 550,000 views.
What caught their attention was the way this "monster" swayed back and forth in the water. The creature is believed to be around 12- to 15-feet long and has a sheet of ice clinging to its back.
Some Facebook viewers have had their doubts, but others are now calling this strange river monster "Nessie 2.0."
Is it possible that Nessie has relatives in other regions of the world? We'll leave that for you to decide.
