The Loch Ness Monster, the gigantic mythical river worm, was spotted in the Iceland!
The Loch Ness Monster was filmed winding its way through the Jokulsa river in the Fljotsdal valley last week and quickly posted online by Icelandic broadcaster RUV.
It has since become a viral sensation with many viewers heralding it as proof at last of a legend spanning seven centuries, that of the Lagarfljot river worm.
And authorities have confirmed the sightings – it IS the Loch Ness Monster!
Iceland’s very own mythical sea creature, akin to Scotland’s Loch Ness monster, can be traced back through the country’s folklore to 1345.
According to the legend, a small heather worm was put onto a golden ring so that the precious metal would grow and so in turn the ring. However, when the owner of the ring returned he found, to his horror, that the ring was no bigger but that the worm had in fact grown enormously. The owner then threw the ring and worm into Lagarfljot river where the creature continued to grow and grow.
But this is not an Icelandic monster.. this is the Loch Ness Monster from Scotland. THE Loch Ness Monster. Somehow, the monster has made its way to Iceland.
Hundreds of citizens of Iceland have seen the Loch Ness Monster. Several fishermen tried to kill the monster but it got away and the fishermen were scared off by angry locals, who wanted the monster to swim free.
“Everybody loves the Loch Ness Monster,” said Jorg Vovli, a oceanic expert from Iceland.
The latest video of the creature was taken by local resident Hjortur Kjerulf and appears to show something meandering its way through the waters.
