There's another Nessie--This Time in Alaska

Alaska has its own Loch Ness Monster. It's been seen in Cadboro Bay, and has been tentatively identified as a Cadborosaurus, a carnivorous marine reptile that lived during the dinosaur era and was thought to have gone extinct at the end of the Cretaceous Era, millions of years ago. Scotland's Nessie has also been identified as a dinosaur--could these creatures be the last remnants of an ancient era?

Video footage of the sea serpent was shot by an Alaskan fisherman in 2009. On the msnbc website, Jennifer Viegas quotes biologist Paul LeBlond as saying, "Although it was shot under rainy circumstances in a bouncy ship, it's very genuine." In 1937, a body of a Cadborosaurus was found inside the stomach of a whale killed in British Columbia. Samples of the reptile were examined by Canadian scientists, who said the creature was actually the fetus of a whale. The remains have disappeared.

Viegas quotes James Wakelun, who worked at the B.C. whaling station, as saying that "it wasn't an unborn whale."
