‘Iceland`s Loch Ness monster’ caught on tape
Melbourne: A cameraman has shot footage of what appears to be a giant serpentine creature weaving its way through the icy waters of lake Lagarfljot in east Iceland.
While there have been several sightings of the Lagarfljotsormurinn or “Icelandic worm monster” in modern times, sceptics have suggested this latest iteration is probably just a fishing net caught in the tide, News.com.au reported.
Legend has it that the Lagarfljotsormurinn started life as a tiny worm placed under a gold ring.
As a fully-grown monster, it roamed the countryside, spitting poison and terrorising the local villagers.
While it was eventually thrown into the lake, it was never destroyed, and continues to bring bad luck to everyone it encounters.
