A mysterious creature has been spotted in the Antarctic waters, sparking a lot of online speculation. Some people think it is a hoax, while others wonder if it is a new species that lives in the deep ocean.
The image was apparently taken from Google Earth and shows a boat with some people – maybe scientists – near an island in Antarctica. But what catches the eye is the huge creature that seems to be swimming next to them.
The creature looks like a giant worm with teeth, and some users have compared it to the “Alaskan bull worm” – a fictional monster from the SpongeBob SquarePants cartoon.
However, there are many reasons to doubt the authenticity of the image. For one thing, the creature looks too cartoonish and out of place. For another, there is no official confirmation or explanation from anyone on the boat.
So, is this image a clever hoax or a genuine discovery? You can watch the video below and decide for yourself.
