Video: Iceland's version of the Loch Ness Monster?


Editor's Picks

A video showing a large serpent-like creature swimming in a river in Iceland has become a monster hit on the Internet.

The footage in the video below was shot last week by Hjörtur Kjerúlf, and shows a creature swimming in the 367' deep glacial river Jökulsá í Fljótsdal, in east Iceland.

There have been several reported sightings of a 'snake-like' creature in the lake, some from as early as 1345, and many think this latest footage shows that Lagarfljótsormurinn – Iceland's version of the Loch Ness monster – is really out there.

However, experts believe it's a hoax. What do you think?
