A recent cell phone video seems to capture what some believe may be an underwater lake monster emerging from a lake in China.
The unidentified creature footage from a lake in Luoping County in China’s southwestern Yunnan Province has sparked rumors of a Chinese Nessie. Officials are said to be investigating the mysterious cell phone footage which appears to capture shadowy shape lifting its head out of the water before quickly disappearing below the surface. There have been sightings and reports of large unknown creatures inhabiting various lakes throughout China for decades although many China lake monster stories are often written off as myth and legend. Could this be actual footage of a Chinese cryptid?
The quality of the footage definitely makes it hard to tell exactly what is in the water although it seems whatever it was had the crowd of onlookers buzzing. According to the Mirror report, the villagers who witnessed the “animal” guessed it had a much larger body that they were unable to get a good look at before it disappeared back into the lake. A government spokesman said he believes the ripples that were seen and the so-called head of the creature were nothing more than sacks bobbing in the water. This seems like an extremely unlikely explanation and locals are not buying it and have since been lining the edges of the lake hoping to spot the Chinese Nessie again. Could this be yet another unknown creature of cryptozoology and an actual Chinese lake monster? Check out the Chinese Nessie video and decide for yourself.
