18-foot, serpent-like sea creature found off California
A marine science instructor snorkeling off the Southern California coast spotted something out of a fantasy novel: the silvery carcass of an 18-foot-long, serpent-like oarfish.
Jasmine Santana of the Catalina Island Marine Institute needed more than 15 helpers to drag the giant sea creature with eyes the size of half dollars to shore on Sunday.
Staffers at the institute are calling it the discovery of a lifetime.
First of all, deep water creatures are the most badass, hands down. Second, I went to summer camp at CIMI for 9 summers and have sunbathed on that very patch of sand.
