A mysterious “serpent-like creature” recently caught on video swimming in a lagoon at New Orleans City Park has got park visitors and officials baffled.
The footage, captured by Kim Frusciante as she was visiting the park’s Sculpture Garden with her family, was picked up by local news and broadcast on WGNO after she shared it on Instagram.
“We looked into the water and saw a mysterious serpent-like creature. It is nothing I have seen before land or sea. The great people of the Internet seem to think it is a genetically modified carp fish created in a lab and released in City Park,” Frusciante told WGNO.
“My children were a combination of terrified and excited as many children would be seeing a beast in City Park,” she continued.
Describing the mysterious lagoon creature, Frusciante said, “It was quite long. I have a 4-year-old slightly smaller than it and it was weaving on the surface, and a lot of scales, the tail was red and it was swishing around aimlessly hanging out on the surface much longer than a normal fish.”
She added, “I am pretty well convinced that it is the Loch Ness Monster of New Orleans.”
Kim Frusciante is far from alone in spotting strange creatures that appear to be similar to the Loch Ness Monster lately.
In March, Eoin O’Faodhagain, who regularly monitors the body of water for Loch Ness Monster sightings, believes he has footage that may reveal that there are, in fact, more than one creature in the Scottish waters.
A couple of weeks later, police in Atizapan de Zaragoza, Mexico were investigating a Loch Ness-type lake monster believed to be living in a reservoir near a large dam.
Perhaps these sightings of a serpent-like creature in locations outside of Loch Ness add credence to the theory that Nessie actually exists in a parallel universe, traveling between universes in a similar fashion to how the kids in Stranger Things used gates or portals to visit the Upside Down.
