Performers, Cast and Crew:
Though generations of sailors have returned from sea with stories of monsters that lurk in the depths, scientists have yet to be able to validate the amazing claims. This special episode of HISTORY'S MYSTERIES investigates the reports of watery wonders--from giant squid attacks to sightings of the Loch Ness monster--and attempts to sort the fact from the folklore.
Description by New Video Group:
From the famous Loch Ness to the giant squid, sea monsters make up a rich and fantastical folklore tradition. The question remains, however, whether these beasts are figments of the imagination, or if they are rooted in fact.
While scientists agree that "monsters" do not exist, they know for certain that many bizarre and undiscovered creatures live in the oceans and deep-water lakes.
HISTORY'S MYSTERIES circles the globe to investigate strange and ongoing reports of sea monsters, including "Champ," the legendary mammoth of Lake Champlain; the New England sea serpent first sighted at Cape Ann in 1639; and coelacanth, the prehistoric fish thought to be extinct for 60 to 70 million years... until it was found off the coast of South Africa in 1938.
Packed with expert interviews and incredible location footage, MONSTERS OF THE SEA reveals the extraordinary life lurking beneath the world's waters.
