Three legendary sea monsters haunting waters around the world

Creeping just below the surface of waters across the globe are some of the strangest and creepiest monsters. Occasionally these beasts reveal themselves for just one second at a time. Some identified, some not, but when a sea monster haunts the water of a location, it becomes a part of the place's identity.

The Manhattan Monster, New York, New York. Also called the Beast of Brooklyn, this unidentified creature washed up on Brooklyn shores of the Hudson River last week. New York City Parks and Recreation officials claim that the creature is just a pig that someone threw into the river after a barbecue, but sceptics site its human-like hands and feet as evidence that the beast is not porcine.

The Charles River Monster, Boston, Massachusetts. The case on this mystery is closed. Inhabiting the much-beloved dirty waters of Boston is the Atlantic sturgeon. Earlier this year, two men spotted a four-foot-long monstrosity lurking just under the surface of the Charles River. The Atlantic sturgeon is an endangered fish known to inhabit the waters of the East coast, but has never previously been seen in the Charles. The creatures can grow to 15 feet in length and can weigh as much as 800 pounds.

The Loch Ness Monster, Loch Ness, Scotland. The most famous aquatic beast of all is the Loch Ness Monster. It was first sighted in 1936, but experts haven't been able to get a good enough look at the thing to identify what it could or might be. There was a full-scale search for Nessie in 1982, and Loch Ness was searched from end to end using Sonar, but the monster did not appear. She was last seen in 2011.
