Did Google Earth Spot A Sea Monster In New Zealand?


It's too big to be a shark, and too quick to be a whale. So what is it?

Probably a glitch. But some people are convinced that this mysterious shadow that appears in the waters of Oke Bay, off the coast of New Zealand's North Island, is a sea monster:

Engineer Pita Witehira, who first spotted the dark mass using Google Earth, told the Daily Mail that he doesn't think it's a boat because there's no white wake. Other people think it's a floating tree trunk.

It isn't the first cryptozoological sighting in the region. In 2013, witnesses snapped a picture of a strange shape off the coast of Australia's Magnetic Island.

Amateur photographer David “Crusty” Herron claimed it was the Loch Ness monster. Granted that Magnetic Island is more than 1,000 miles away from Oke Bay, but that's a lot closer than Scotland.
