Crypt019A Giant Eels by Dragonsmana Crypt019A Giant Eels by Dragonsmana
Cryptid File 019A - Giant Eels

Location: Worldwide

Evidence: Sightings, possible explanation for many lake monsters that skeptics usually note.

Tempermant: Believed to be aggressive

My thoughts and theories: As much as I don't want to, I really do believe that there are giant eels lurking within many bodies of water around the globe. For I believe it could explain SOME and not all lake monsters. But I am deathly afraid of eels for some reason. Maybe it's thier unblinking eyes, or just their overall facial structure coupled with experience with eels with bad attitudes. Even if they are not 30-40ft long eels, even those the size of Morays would certainly be worth noting if they exist in freshwater.

The giant eel shown above is based upon the account of Cressie, which is not as friendly as it's name sounds. The most frightening story of Cressie, took place in the mid 1980s. The story involved rescue divers diving into the lake to search for survivors of a downed helicopter. But what they found was much more frightening..... They found themselves surrounded by a school of large eels that were as they claimed "as thick as a man's thigh" which proceeded to attack them, noone was seriously injured but the men were pretty shaken up. The only thing odd about this story, is that the eels attacked in a school. But they could of been feeding upon the corpse of the pilot.......

Oh, those black things in the background are the creature's school. Can you imagine being attacked by a WHOLE FREAKIN SCHOOL of these things! It would be like Pirahna on steroids!

Closing Statement: I would also like to say that giant eels are a distinct possiblity. I mean, even the skeptics cite them as a possible source for the sightings of sea and lake monsters.

Jeeze, nasty looking fellow. The fact it hunts in packs implies at least moderate intelligence, making it even scarier than it already was. <shivers>

Well I wasn't really thinking they hunt in schools, just figured they were just attempting to scavenge. First come, first serve, like predators often do in nature, even if they are solitary.

That does make sense, but one must admit, the possibility is frightening.

In a book called the Loch, The Loch Ness Monster was in fact a species of Giant Eel that originated in the Sargasso Sea, but somehow found it's way into scotland.
Nessitrix Rombitrix was it's Scientific name he gave the beast.
A good representaion of the cryptid although most eel are not supposed to haves flippers.( If i can remember right off hand)
