Sea Monsters Documentary

Sea monsters are fabulous or mythological creatures, believed to stay in the sea and often pictured to be of great size. Sea monsters could take lots of forms, including sea dragons, giant squid, or multi-armed beasts. They can be slimy or scaly and are often imagined threatening ships or spouting jets of water. The definition of a "beast" is subjective, and some sea monsters may have been based upon clinically approved creatures such as whales and sorts of titan and colossal squid.

Sea monster remains have been reported since recent classical times (Heuvelmans 1968). Unidentified carcasses are often called globsters. The claimed plesiosaur netted by the Japanese trawler Zuiyo Maru off New Zealand induced a feeling in 1977 and was commemorated on a Brazilian shipping stamp before it was suggested by the FBI to be the decomposing carcass of a basking shark. DNA screening validated that an alleged sea monster cleaned up on Fortune Bay, Newfoundland in August 2001, was a sperm whale.

One more modern instance of a "sea beast" was the unusual creature cleaned up in Los Muermos on the Chilean sea coast in July 2003. Cases of boneless, amorphic globsters are often believed to be gigantic octopuses, however it has now been established that sperm whales passing away at sea decompose in such a method that the blubber removes from the physical body, developing featureless whitish masses that occasionally show a hairy structure due to subjected strands of collagen fibers.
