Here is the video of a new sea creature discovered off the Florida coast near Palm Beach. The creature was filmed by an expert under-water photographer named Jay Garbose. Scientists at the Smithsonian have yet to positively identify the animal, which is pretty remarkable for something that is seven feet long swimming in plain view!
This sea serpent is getting ginned up in the media as a “sea monster” and is drawing comparisons to the mythical “Lock Ness Monster.” That is all very silly but good fun and it is positively an interesting video.
It was first thought to be a “Tigertail Sea Cucumber’ but that assessment has been discounted. This probably-new species is thought to be part of the “Nemertean Worm” family.
Maybe we can call this new species the “Liberal Sea Worm.”
