Is this really a sea-serpent in a Norwegian lake?

August 21st, 2012 by Marc Comments

No-one loves a good crypto-zoology story better than me, and this is a good one.

Three men on a trip to Lake Hornindalsvatnet on August 1st this year took the ablove picture after they saw the surface of the lake rippling and something appearing.

“We saw what we saw, no doubt about it,” Andreas Solvik told, according to the Huffington Post.

The ‘creature’ appears to have two humps and a head on a long neck and was snapped on camera phones by two of the men.

Curiously, there is indeed rumours of a serpent in the lake called Hornindalsvatnet, which, at 514 meters, is the deepest lake in Europe.

Solvik and his friends, Finn Nyhammer and Arvid Otterdal, said: “I have lived beside the lake for 50 years, and have spent a fair amount of hours on the lake. I have never seen anything like this before,” said Solvik.

“We sped up and went over to where it had been. It was maybe 70 meters away,” Solvik added. “But when we got there, there was nothing left to see, only small ripples in the water. There wasn’t anything floating in the water.”

Soooooooo… what say you all?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
