Ohio Couple Claim to Capture 'Normandy Nessie' Creature on Video in Florida

Posted By on Fri, Sep 3, 2010 at 11:39 AM

An Ohio couple vacationing in Florida claim to have captured the infamous 'Normandy Nessie' on video.

The supposed 30-foot-long, serpent-like creature has been part of Florida lore ever since resident Russ Sittloh coined the name after catching similar mysterious movements by some mysterious creature in the water near his home.

Authorities, it should be noted, say it was likely a manatee or anaconda that witnesses saw and not a Loch Ness relative.

It is Florida, however, so nothing should be ruled out.
